Publicity for “Design & Build” was made by “SP” thru magazines like Jet wings! Website – and quarterly bulletin.. “We@SP” proved to have been instrumental for it’s publicity. Seminars, workshops, SPARK are also, on agenda. This, eventually, have motivated even, prestigious government clients to adopt “Design & Build” projects as, the product..!

Reliability of “Design & Build Project Delivery System” was acknowledged by many IT / Industry Clients, Government Agencies thru repeat orders/NIT’s. Reliability towards commitment was experienced by the clients as single point accountability.

Anticipation of probable deviations at pretender stage always, offered flexibility for winning the projects, which, in fact have crystallized the distinctivity of “Design & Build”.

Universability in “Design & Build Process”, eventually led to the up-gradation from “ISO-9001-2000” to “ISO-9001-2008”. “LEED/GREEN BUILDING PROJECT”, on Design & Build Project Delivery Mode not only, symbolizes it’s Uniqueness.. but it’s UNIVERSABILITY.., also!

Cost compatibility quite often edged out the competitors and offered comfort to the clients..! Some client/s preferred to spell out the budgets within which; the projects were made compatible to client’s budget constraints by virtue of “DISTINCTIVITY” lying at it’s peak..!

Design alternatives, Best practices, standardization, time saving techniques and logistics planning always, had driven most of the projects towards the time sustainability with respect to the commitments on various interfaces during the project/s execution.
