Shaping the Journey

Mr. N. N. Shrikhande – Chairman Emeritus established the firm under the name Shrikhande & Vajifdar in 1959. Initially, it was only a two-man consulting firm and was later changed to Shrikhande & Co. in 1962. In late 1978, the firm emerged as Shrikhande Consultants Pvt. Ltd. (SCPL) with Mr. N. N. Shrikhande as the first Chairman and Managing Director.

For about two decades, the consultancy was involved in only structural designing work such as high-rise and industrial buildings, infrastructural works like road over bridges/underpasses, fly-overs, inter-changes, special tall structures like chimneys and elevated reservoirs adopting different materials, like RCC and pre-stressed concrete, structural steel etc. and using different forms for roofs like shells and folded plates etc.

Presently, SCPL is governed by Mr. Ravindra N. Shrikhande – Chairman and Mr. Rajeev Shrikhande – Managing Director.

Acknowledging the changing scenario in the country as well as the needs of clients, the consultancy diversified the services and also began proffering services like planning, designing, quantity surveying, project/construction management, audit etc. in civil and allied branches of engineering disciplines.

Today, the firm works on different projects with reputed clients across the length and breadth of the country. SCPL also works with renowned multinational clients as part of a consortium, associate consultants, in-joint ventures or sub-consultants in some cases.
