Our Approach for Executing the Project
The client’s vision of creating patient centered surgical oncology facility was achieved by involving right from site selection to Technical decision to design and handover. Our active involvement helped in altering norms for approval of Nursing Homes on higher floors in Commercial buildings which not only helped the client but will also be helpful for healthcare sectors in the city.
