Sarvodaya Heights a twin multi-storey residential project is developed by Nahar & Seth Enterprises. The project, 158 m high, spanning over 3,75,000 sq. ft. area involved 152 flats and four penthouses. The project sports amenities like swimming pool, gymnasium, club house, Landscaped Gardens, indoor and outdoor utilities. As in any construction projects, Nahar Group aimed to successfully execute the project after gaining approvals from the High-Rise Committee.

  •         Monitor and control the work through bi-weekly meetings

  •         Updating and reporting the progress of the project to partners and Ar. Ajay Nahar

Additionally, with the project inching towards its phase of completion of bare necessities and outlined project works, the situation demanded for incorporating new set of activities, ultimately increasing the scope of work. The timeline for the project however remained unchanged.
