If you’re in Lucknow, you would have definitely caught a glimpse of the magnificent structure of Lulu Mall (under construction), spanning 20 lakh sq.ft. of area. Even in Qatar, the grandeur of buildings like Qatar Science & Technology Park, Lusai Marina Tower, and many more have awestruck a plenty of souls. Wondering what makes them so special? It is indeed their unique and spellbinding designs; thanks to the mastermind - Desionics Project Designs(P) Ltd., India’s only SMEP Design & BIM (Building Information Modelling) consultant with presence in Middle East as well. In contrast to a mere contractor, Desionics adheres to a holistic approach of delivering SMEP (Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing & Fire) Design as well as BIM services to clients, till the point of completion and handing-over the project.

Today, most of the BIM consultants in India conform to the Level of Detail(LOD)-300 & 350, the graphical content defined for key stages of a project, while companies in Middle East conform to LOD - 400. Standing way a head of these companies is Desionics that utilizes up to LOD - 500, and gives the same level of attention to every project, despite the sector or scale. The other forte of the firm is its affordable price points that none in the Indian
as well as foreign markets can compete with. Commenting on this forte, Cherian C, Chairman, Desionics Project Designs, explains, “We deploy technically qualified people, predominantly those who migrate back to India post facing employment difficulties abroad. This way, our initial costs for manpower are lesser compared to other consultants that recruit people from abroad”.

Transparency Par Excellence
Desionics breathes its vision -‘We combine technical expertise and dynamic tools with reliable process to achieve design excellence’, across each project. The firm deploys Autodesk BIM 360, wherein the design status of each project is updated on a day-to-day basis. Each client is provided with a unique user name and password to login to their accounts and track the progress of their project from time-to-time. Besides, Desionics also leverages the might of Candy, the ultimate construction project management software that produces accurate quantity and cost of a project with no human interference, thus offering an error free and transparent price point for the clients.

To maintain transparency even in project delivery, Desionics updates each and every detail across Oracle’s Primavera or Microsoft Project software, which is shared with the client on a monthly basis. Especially when there is a delay in the project, the firm ensures to input the actual completion date in the project planner against the estimated date, stating appropriate reasons. The reasons, be it changes in client’s requirements, delay in approval, or any others, are clearly mentioned so that
Desionics can improve itself and perform well in its future projects. Other advanced software utilized by the firm include CCS Candy for Estimation, ETAB Model, SAFE Analysis for structural designs, Autodesk AEC Collection for 3D detailed MEP modeling, DIALux & Relux for lighting calculation, ETAP for electrical power distribution analysis, Elite for sprinkler system calculation, HAP for heat load calculation, and many others. Investing heavily in these software along with training its manpower on effective software utilization is how Desionics quotes affordable prices for its designs.

Value Engineering
With regards to electrical design for buildings, most conventional designers restrict themselves to academic knowledge and not think out of the box. Contrastingly, the advancements in technology have presented us with various novel methods of cable designs that can evade the fire accidents during heavy usage. This is exactly what Desionics follows! Eldho P Kuriakose, Managing Director, Desionics Project Designs, articulates, “We incorporate value engineering as well as latest equipment in the market across all our upcoming designs, thus greatly benefitting our clients poised across education & science, commercial & workspace, retail & hospitality, health & wellness, industrial and residential sectors”. No wonder, Desionics always stays in conformance with its tagline ‘Engineering Designs based Operating Network for Industrial & Commercial Services’!
