¨My success mantra is commitment, performance and trust, and we have been successful in creating trust among all stakeholders.¨ Niranjan Hiranandani , Managing Director
Wherever there are people, there is an opportunity to serve. This being a maxim, Hiranandani Constructions has always believed that its success comes from its people. The company has come a long way to be recognised worldwide for its modern, state-of-the-art, mixed-use township projects in Powai and Thane in Mumbai, both of which have become preferred residential and commercial locations. Its unique ongoing projects include a residential project in Thane - Lotus Enclave - and The Walk, a one-bedroom apartment complex in Thane with a shopping street in it.

With operations spread across Mumbai, Thane, Chennai, Pune, Nashik and Ahmedabad, this company, certified ISO 9001:2008 by Bureau Veritas, has a dedicated and experienced staff of over 1,600. Spearheading the group is Niranjan Hiranandani, Managing Director, who is popularly known as builder extraordinaire and man responsible for changing Mumbai´s skyline. Under his guidance, innovation has been a part of the company´s continuous need and strategy, right from its initial beginning of applying waterproofing for terraces and apartments, to eventually opting for better quality finishes, double walling and new, classical architecture. Also, in terms of quality and speed in construction, the company has moved up the value chain by using quality materials and technology.

With its farsightedness to spot shifting societal trends, Hiranandani is among the leaders in its flagship business of construction with a pan-India as well as international presence. Its international achievement is evident from 23 Marina, the 90-storey residential tower (developed by son Darshan Hiranandani), also recognised as the second tallest tower in the world. What´s next for Niranjan Hiranandani? Well, he is working towards an initiativeûthe education for skille development. Meanwhile, propelled by the drive to change expectations and lifestyle, Hiranandani continues to create better communities.

ôThis is no longer a company for me, it´s a family. Whatever I am today, the Hiranandani brothers have had a major role to play. They gave me a platform to spring from. The company has many firsts attached to it and I tag along with them. It was the first to build a township in the private sector, one of the first to do concrete roads, sewage treatment plant, forestation, double wall system for a leak-proof building and the classical style design.´

Sailesh R MahImtura, Mentor, Mahimtura Consultants ´I am part of Hiranandani´s extended family and find it exhilarating as a structural engineer when I see how the company is receptive to innovative design and fastidious about construction quality. Achieving projects in record time, it has been a market leader in setting concrete and waterproofing standards. Hiranandani Group´s fairness in dealing with vendors and purchasers and high ethical standards rub off on everyone dealing with them.´
