Design Consultant

When it was decided to build Snehodiya next to the Senior Citizen’s Park, there was need for a design consultant to plan and design the project. An expert committee headed by Prabir Mitra, a renowned architect in Kolkata was set up to evaluate and decide on the competitive bids. After detailed evaluation of technical and financial bids the committee finally recommended PACE Consultants. PACE established in 1972 by architect Hiren Chaudhury and engineer Manab Basu Malik has been setting the best standards in architectural consultancy for more than 40 years in Eastern India and offering a plethora of services that include Architecture, Interior Design, Master Planning, Urban Design, Landscape Architecture, Sustainable Design and Project Management Consultancy.
