PERSONAL

Very widely traveled in the continental United States, Europe and Asia. Familiar with facilities like Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, Northside Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital, Dekalb Medical Center, Gwinett Medical Center, Scientific Atlanta, Nortel Networks, Lucent Technologies, BellSouth Corp., IBM, Motorola, BMW of N.A, Mercedes Benz of N.A, Mercedes Benz plant and Museum at Tuscaloosa, Alabama, BMW plant and Museum at Spartanburg, South Carolina, Paul Getty Center, Ford, General Motors, Doraville plant.

Extensively traveled the length and breadth of India by Air and Road. In-depth Knowledge of the Institutional, Commercial, Industrial and Residential building types across the nation. Well versed with the culture, demands, customs, traditions and limitations of people with various backgrounds across the nation. Very comfortable in dealing with Multinational clients, home grown industrial giants and the humble individual homes at the same time.

Our Office

 The office at Magal Associates was established in the 1930's, although the firm itself was established in 1925. The office building is endowed with an excellent natural habitat, including Coconut, Mango and other fruits bearing trees in the Orchard On-site. The premise is affectionately called the "Best Farm-House" in the center of Hyderabad city by some of our clients. The habitat here attracts various migratory birds (such as Eurasian Oriole) from as far as Eurasian regions. This is one of the few places for an office where one can tell time of the day by the type of bird song. Early morning one can hear the Cuckoos, Parrots and the Bulbuls. At the noon one can hear Mynas and the Eurasian Oriole. Past 5 p.m one may hear a variety of Fly catchers and other small birds ethnic to the region returning to their homes. An occasional visitor is the endangered Indian Pittah.    The philosophy of design here rests on "Excellence by design", based on integrity, value - engineering and safety.    Architecture here is the responsibility of designing the built environment taking into consideration the Health, Safety and well being of the end users. The design must have a sense of style that transcends style and hopefully not out of place even in different cultural contexts. Ultimately the culture of the society may be judged by the architecture it produces and it shows how well the architects within it design the built environment. The building itself has been a Green building since 1930's. The entire office interior does not need artificial lighting during the day and more than 50% of storm water run-off from the site and the building rooftop is harvested for gardening. Also a significant amount of plant and tree waste is used as compost to sustain the trees and plants on site. Last but certainly not the least the people at Magal Associates are carefully associated with the firm from the best Institutes of India and get trained to work on projects of National and International significance. The office attracts student interns from length and breadth of the country, including the North - East, North - West, Central and Southern region of India.  We carefully listen to our clients and work with them to get the best out of their budget and resources for the benefit of the project. Magal Associates has been at the forefront of incorporating new technology in its practice, beginning with the use of the "Slide Rule" in the 1960's to the use of the "Texas Instruments" Calculators in the 1970's. Today the company uses licensed software's like "AutoCAD" from Autodesk and "Struds" from Softech Engineers Pvt. Ltd., both leaders in Architectural and Structural Engineering software, respectively. Tekla and Revit are also utilized with our Associates for larger and more Complex Projects. The standard operating tools which are industry benchmarks, in addition to an efficient network of computers are available in the office. Being one of the first in the country to have its own A0 plotters, the company does not hesitate to step up to the available technological upgrades.
