The Future Of Design is a massive professional networking portal that is an inclusive platform connecting the art, architecture and design. Certainly the role of a Project Management Consultancy (better known as PMC) is now integral to the building industry. TFOD also provides a stimulating and interactive platform for discussing all aspects of design. The first PMC to come on board is Mumbai-based Stalwart Project Management. This week, the title of TFOD Profile Of The Week goes to Samraat Manchekar – for being the first PMC on TFOD! The Stalwart Profile boasts of a multitude of clients from varied sectors, such as corporate, hospitality and institutional.

Boutique Consultancies can be best defined as businesses that assess their services in terms of the volumes of projects that can be successfully managed. These consultancies offer 360º Consultancy services much like their large counterparts. However, they maintain a stringent QC norm and ensure crisp services. These agencies show a high skew towards quality projects and lesser inclination towards volume projects.


Stalwart is an independent boutique Project Management Company offering a breadth of solutions tailored to fit clients’ requirements. Their services cover the entire lifecycle of a project; successfully executed through the wide-ranging skills of their personnel. The company prides itself in selecting client assignments in their chosen domains, and delivering a 100% satisfaction ratio.

Distressed Project Recovery
