It’s a people’s company, and Sankey being a great leader has been able to motivate everybody to work at the pace they have been working. I find the commitment, wherever things you can attribute to good quality of a company, they have got loyalty, they have got dedication, integrity levels are high, commitment is there. wherever they have worked, whichever developer they have worked with, they have been able to make those developers progress much faster then what the developers are trying to do themselves. 

-Jitendra Virwani, Chairman, Embassy Group

Ever since Synergy has been part of our life, having built Medanta, I think there is a lot of synergy with Synergy that we have found in our ability to accomplish projects, which are one of the biggest in this country. the whole team has been energetic, diligent and always on the ball and have delivered when they promised that they would. 

-Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman & MD, Medanta

I think they have a pretty high customer centric focus and they are very down to earth and, they are willing to listen to the requirement of the customers and also they are able to deliver the top class solutions in terms of the buildings which we have occupied. And by choosing Synergy, I can definitely say that we have done the right thing.

Sankey’s vision and ability to put together a brilliant team has enabled Synergy to be what it is today – the most respected project management company in India. And in the process they transformed the way developers worked in India.
