Firdaus Variava, vice chairman of Bharat Floorings and Tiles, shared a quote; I’ve asked thousands of people, “Where are you when you get your best ideas?” On only one occasion did someone seriously say, “In my workplace.” He added, “For any given Creative Space, the place itself needs to have elements that inspire creativity.
The Bharat Floorings Group is the leader in quality cement floorings – a reputation held for over 90 years. In 1922 Bharat pioneered the cement tiles industry in India as part of the Swadeshi movement as a contribution to India’s economic independence by producing tiles of international quality to replace imports. The best European technologies were brought and modified to create a unique product suited to Indian conditions. Recognizing that a good floor is only achieved with a good product that is installed correctly and maintained properly, the company has sister companies which do high quality installation of all types of floorings, a range of civil work, floor maintenance and general cleaning.
Over the decades Bharat has laid some of the best-known floors in India’s landmark buildings: from palaces of Maharajas and Raj Bhavans to prominent residences, hotels, hospitals, clubs, offices, factories, co-operative housing societies, educational and religious institutions, airports, railways etc.
