The Head Office of Reserve Bank of India was constructed by SP Group; when RBI went in for a new multi-storied Complex, once again it picked SP Group. The largest public sector bank in the country viz. State Bank of India, also chose SP Group for construction of its Head Office. The Export-Import Bank of India operates from the World Trade Centre, a prestigious building in Mumbai, constructed by SP Group. Nearly 70 years ago, Bank of India had its Head Office constructed by SP Group; when its new Head Office was to be constructed recently, it once again entrusted the job to SP. It would thus be seen that SP enjoys the total confidence of top clients with regard to both transparency in pricing and ability to complete projects within budget and time. SP Group was one of the first Indian Construction Companies to enter the Middle-east in the 1970s; that the Palace of the Sultanate of Oman was entrusted to SP and that the long term maintenance of this monumental structure was also given to SP Group, will bear testimony to SP’s expertise in such prestigious jobs. The Sultanate of Oman sent a special letter of commendation to the Government of India on this score. When the Agha Khan Development Network was requested by the new Government of Afghanistan to complete a Five Star Hotel in the difficult conditions of Kabul, it entrusted the job to SP on a directly negotiated basis. The Group completed the job to the fullest satisfaction of the principal and the Government of Afghanistan; Serena Hotel was inaugurated by the President of Afghanistan in the august presence of His Highness the Aga Khan. This impeccable track record of SP Group stood it in good stead when the Government of India and the Export-Import Bank of India extended Lines of Credit to Mauritius and Guyana. The Mauritius IT Park, “EBENE CITY”, and “LE PAILLES” the Convention Centre in Mauritius, were both completed within the budget and time allocated. Ebene City has been adjudged the Most Intelligent Building in the World by the Society of Intelligent Buildings based in the USA.
