Top Real Estate Builders and Developers in India

Top Real Estate Builders and Developers in India

The construction and the real estate sectors are the fundamental part of the Indian economy’s growth and responsible for the development of the country’s core infrastructure. The commercial properties delivered by the property developers include offices, retail spaces, and institutional spaces. The team of experts in the construction companies or the builders is immensely engaged in providing the construction services after a complete knowledge about the client’s requirements in order to fulfill their high expectations with delivery of projects as per committed specifications and quality.

The ranking of builders and developers is asses on the basis of some critical parameters :

·         Design, Engineering & Planning approach
·         Architecture and Innovation
·         Website and Online presence
·         Construction project management
·         Track Record of Builder
·         Construction Quality
·         Timely completion of the project
·         Presence in the cities
·         Number of projects completed and ongoing projects
·         Employee competence
·         Financial strength & Annual Turnover
·         Future vision & growth
·         Eco friendly architecture & use of technology
·         Use of Green Building materials
·         Property management
·         Approvals & Due diligence
·         Customer services

The construction is a time-consuming process involving the management of resources, money and the human workforce. We can also expect a tedious procedure that starts from the planning of the design to final finishing like the fixing of fixtures. The builder also takes care of the health and safety of the construction workers by rigorously following the construction site safety procedures.
