I am immensely thankful to CW and the jury members for recognising the work I have done in the industry so far. This honour has come to me as a bit of a surprise because there are many companies who have done such extraordinary work in the Indian construction landscape.
When cement and steel meet champagne and silk, the result is magic. And gilding the magic was the camaraderie in the room, which came from a sense of fraternity and common purpose. Another rich addition to CW´s bank of memories built over the past 14 years, the CW Annual Awards constituted another step in the journey to bring the industry to centrestage, recognise achievements, and honour construction heroes.
