About Gaurav

Growing up in north India, Gaurav spent a lot of time on construction job sites – from hospitals to schools to industrial buildings. The reason? Both his grandfather and father owned and operated construction companies. “You could say construction is in my blood,” said Guarav. “I paired my interest in construction with my passion for drawing and set my sights on a career in architecture.” Today, he is pairing his ability to think globally and act locally as managing director of HKS India. “I believe we are raising the design industry bar for our clients in several ways thanks to our global, digital highway. We are able to deliver projects in context with the unique business and cultural needs of India and the surrounding region, while thinking globally in terms of design and process. The bottom line: Clients are able to deliver their project faster, better, leaner and at lower costs.” Gaurav’s experience includes working with a diverse base of clients in South Asia and the United States.
