Today, this ‘SRK Empire Head Quarter Building’ has become a status symbol for everyone in our company. Before we started the project, we had a vision in our mind, and Ar. Snehal Shah has translated our vision into reality way beyond our expectations. Since its inauguration in April, 2011, the building has been visited by thousands of visitors from all over the country and even the world; and invariably, the response from everyone stepping into the building has been a very consistent: ‘Wow’! After having used this building for over 1.5 years, I am able to say with confidence that the building is not only aesthetically wonderful, but also very user-friendly, functional, easy to maintain with ample daylight. I would attribute Snehal’s success to his ‘world best’ vision, his understanding nature, high level of professionalism and integrity.
