We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors... we borrow it from our children
We are called Masons Ink - a tribute to the hands that make our designs a reality. A people-oriented design and construction firm specialised along 3 verticals – sustainability, heritage conservation and social architecture. We are a team of likeminded individuals striving to make a difference in the construction sector.
The firm believes that sustainability should no longer be a choice but the norm and is striving to make it more accessible to the common man. Determined to reach a zero-carbon footprint in our projects, we focus on R&D in the use and innovation of natural materials in construction. The firm has been recognised internationally for our efforts in research and has represented India at various international scientific conferences.
Knowledge transfer being an important part of our agenda we conduct several awareness and training programmes on both sustainability and heritage.
We are hands-on in all our projects and follow a very on-ground approach in construction.
We love our Job, hence everything we do we put our hearts into it.
Whether it is the people we work for, or the people we work with, we value honesty, passion and commitment.
