At Apte Sane & Associates, we place a high priority on cost and time control, while maintaining the desired quality. When the design is initiated, developed and implemented, emphasis is laid on gelling local resources with regards to each site with external expertise for specialized inputs.
While we strive to develop long term association with our clients through our work, with complete transparency in functioning, to match the client’s needs, objective and resources in delivering the works, we also believe in designing structures that are in harmony with humanity and its environment.
A ‘hands-on’ site-specific approach is adopted while designing the built environment. Any building design is open to review and refinement until not implemented, there-by coming up with innovation at times and better value for time and money.
We believe that a client coming back with new project is the biggest pat on our back.
In all our works, guiding us are these values:
All our activities are driven by one goal: to provide services that meet the client’s needs and create value additions with emphasis on time, cost, quality & safety.
