Case study-Palam Farms, New Delhi

               "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."-Elizabeth Kubler Ross

The purpose of this quote is not to let one compare once struggle during difficult time but journey of glass from stained glass to High Performance glasses....

Now modern days glasses not only creates illusion of more space but also stops heat ( partially), UV radiation & protects from Burglar or, forced entry.

While working with this Project, it was made clear to us & our fabrication partner by Architect & Client that it is like glass house and Doors/windows are going to play a very important role in the whole project. 

Each room were having  big window opening ( approx. width 9 feet * height 8 feet) as purpose to make it maximum natural lights in but on the contrary same time it makes whole house vulnerable to more heat during summer & less thermal insulation during winter...

We have suggested to have sun path analysis to be taken in account while quoting as it will let us know that which part of house will have more heat or, less sun...

At which angle Sun moves over your Home, makes your Home vulnerable to its Heat

Case study- Mr. Sudhir Malhotra, DLF Phase 1, Gurgaon

Some people form the background score of your life. At times diffusing the din. At times breaking d silence. At all times making a difference ~ Anonymous

Some times we look our job in the same way as per above Quote. While meeting & listening Mr. Sudhir Malhotra's requirements, Would You believe that it took almost two years to him finalize the Door/Window company! He want to go with the brands which are most advertised. Many consumer forums have been formed and they are full of consumer complaints of most advertised brands, which does not show good sign as it will affect on long term basis.You can see Balance sheet of these companies which are available on their website which shows they are into heavy losses as they money on advertisement but don't focus on quality through which customer can be satisfied.

In " n" number of meetings , we have tried to understand his requirements & offered him solutions in a cost effective way.
