At Rustomjee, we believe ideas form the cornerstones of buildings. Bricks and mortar are merely the blocks that help in realising them. Ideas transform houses into homes and offices into innovation centres, but what’s an idea without planning and foresight?
These are thoughts that animate Rustomjee’s design principles. The same principles that inspire the company to invent, discover and deliver newer lifestyle solutions. Since its inception in 1996, Rustomjee has heralded the rise of insightful design and eco-friendly construction technologies. Through its diverse projects, it has lived up to global benchmarks and set a few of its own.
Today, this commitment to excellence is converting millions of square feet of Mumbai into gated communities, premium townships, standalone landmarks and commercial spaces.
Our operating philosophy is team work with our customers. With that in mind, we strive to be a performer and leader in every dimension of our business. We never substitute price for quality because our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, and ultimately, long-term success for the business.
Our vision is to continuously add value to the lives of customers, business associates and stakeholders, while also giving back to the society.
Accountability | Commitment to delivery schedules | Team work | Customer centricity | Transparency and long term partnership with stakeholders | Innovation in design, systems and world class processes | Superior quality minus price-induced compromise
