This multidisciplinary firm has mainly catered to multinationals, property developers, commercial and public establishments, etc. who require work done to international standards.


success is based in its holistic and sensitive approach to any design, which is achieved by its close co-ordination with the clients and consultants. Stress is laid on making sure the clients’ brief is executed with the functionality of design enhanced with others parameters like aesthetics, mood and style, harmony with the environment, ergonomics, etc. and within the available budget.

All this is achieved by involving allied consultants as required at the conceptual and creative design phase of the project to ensure a harmonious integration of architecture, interiors, lighting and landscaping, etc. The scope of work handled by RMA encompasses conceptual designs, detailed working drawings, tendering documentation, appointment of contractors, project management and  site supervision to the full satisfaction of the clients.  A detailed description of RMA’s normal scope of work is available on request.
