Anantha beams “We promise to build a fully functional and optimized workplace in less than 90 days. Use of technology like BIM, Revit and VR helps HIDECOR to reach the accuracy in everything that we do like design or operations.”
Talking about industry challenges, he further adds
“Design and build has been an unorganized workforce Industry for as long as we know. The workforce consists of blue collar labours across various skill sets like artisans, electricians, carpenters, etc, which creates an imbalance in pricing and timelines. With help of deep knowledge on 10000+ products and channel partners across various segments, we bring in standardization of pricing which helps our client save cost.
We believe in designing workspaces with maximum utility of the space. Most of the design firms, focus on creating very vibrant offices there by ignoring the fact of utility, which increases the spend and hurt the utilization of the space which translates to lack of space and more expenditure to the client as the years go by. We focus on creating more meaningful spaces with at par industry standards of space utility with world class designs.”
