Co-Founder Studio Masons (Interview PART-1)
Working based on Collaborative Approach and Giving Priority to Labour Welfare .. with Karthick
Karthick has a vast experience in working in the industry and is a proponent of collaborative working, starting at the unskilled labor level and going up all the stakeholders. He thinks, the smallest and the most critical unit of a successful project is the unskilled labour and having a happy and a content workforce is half the battle won.
Karthick after his mechanical engineering started his career as a sales and technical support for a software company focusing on software catering to the Mechanical industry. His passion for the construction industry rose as he got exposed to few of the members in his family working in the industry which triggered his passion to work on the ground and to create something rather than be selling something. This passion let him to start his journey as a project engineer in a Design Build firm focusing on Research Laboratory fit outs. In the last two decades, he rose from the ranks and was heading as a Director for Design Build for a global firm before the entrepreneur in him kicked in and he Co-Founded STUDIO MASONS PRIVATE LIMITED a Design and Build firm in the year 2021
Karthick ‘s diversified professional journey taught him that learning constantly is the only way of success, he soon realized that every project, every client and every team member is capable of addition to your knowledge base and experience.
The success of a project is when all the stake holders, be the architect, owner, engineer or the contractor all come to a common platform and collaborate. It seems simple enough, but all the varied professionals have a different approach and objectives for the project. To align and find the common goal and purpose and then collaborate is the key to success.
Working together as a team keeping project goal as common objective is the success for the project and not the specific roles individuals play in it. This is the mantra what Karthick believes in and so gave birth to the idea of “Lets innovate Together”
Construction industry is an ever growing and innovating industry, we are constantly seeing new products taking the market share, to innovate for a better and more sustainable future in construction. Being aware of all the products via means of conferences and keeping himself is constant touch with all the vendors and partners keeps him future ready
Karthick feels that a good contractor or a partner never constricts an architect to dream and dream big. His role is to help convert the dream into reality, the more a contractor can think like an architect and an architect think like a contractor, the spectrum between dream and reality will become very short.To be continued. >>
