In India very few engineers tend to stick to their chosen stream of education at colleges and of these only a handful follow the passion to a greater extent. Mr. Suhas Lunkad the chief promoter of the Rohan Group of Pune is one such Civil Engineer who practiced his training and grew it into a flourishing business of civil contracting, real estate and infrastructure development. Having attended the prestigious College of Engineering Pune (COEP) Mr. Lunkad went on to set up Rohan Builders (India) Pvt. Ltd, Rohan Builders & Developers Pvt. Ltd., Rohan Rajdeep Tollways Ltd. and Rohan Agrotech all under the umbrella of Rohan Group.
Rohan Builders have established themselves as competent and sought-after developers in residential, commercial as well as industrial and infrastructure projects. Over the last 23 years, their strong engineering background has gone from strength to strength. Their projects are testament to the growth in their design skills as well. Having started in 1993, Rohan Builders have made Pune and Bangalore their stronghold with innovative designs and structures, modern and new amenities, quality construction and timely delivery of residential projects such as 1 ModiBaug, Rohan Tarang, Rohan Mithila, among others in Pune, while in Bangalore they have made their mark with projects like Rohan Mihira, Rohan Avriti and Rohan Vasantha.
We take a look at some attributes of Rohan Builders that make them not just innovative developers but also diverse, humane and award-winning developers.
Central to the innovative designs of Rohan’s residential projects is the PLUS concept. PLUS refers to – Perfect Ventilation, Lively Light, Utmost Privacy, Smart Space. This design approach has become the overarching theme and standard design concept of all Rohan Homes. So, a home at any of Rohan’s residential properties have wall-to-wall windows providing good cross ventilation and air flow. This also means better, natural lighting and reduced usage of electricity. One’s privacy is maintained with recessed balconies while the reduced passages and internal walls within units ensure more utilizable space and create a sense of openness.
Focus on design
Over the years, Rohan has increased their focus on the design elements of their constructions. This is evident from their use of colonnades and raised building heights. Rohan has implemented double and triple height colonnades which serve to create a sense of dynamism and provide views of open landscapes (Rohan Iksha in Bangalore is a good example of the same). Their apartment projects are coming up with typologies that consist of an interplay of projecting balconies, private terraces and windows.
Clients like Mahindra, Indian Oil, Nestle, Pepsico, Daimler Chrysler and many others will testify to Rohan Builders’ engineering prowess in the various industrial projects they have executed for them. These projects have been across industries as varied as Oil & Chemical, Food & Beverage, Water & Waste Management and even Design & Build / Turnkey projects. Rohan have also been involved in building and maintaining highways such as the Balachour-Dasua Road, Punjab, Ropar-Phagwara Road, Ahmednagar Ashti Jamkhed Bhoom Pardi Road, Maharashtra and a few others as well as bridges like Ausa-Umarga-Khasagi road, Maharashtra and the Amritsar Bus Terminus, Punjab.
