Staying true to their ethos of creating meticulous, clean and “beyond ordinary” designs, Narsi Group's new design & manufacturing facility at Turbhe, Navi Mumbai, is a paragon of their creative and constructional capabilities. The factory for the turnkey fit-out service provider, specialising in corporate interiors, is spread over 1.25 lakh sq-ft and will cater to all project needs of their existing sites, Pan India.
The grandeur of the place, bifurcated into three main floors, can be felt from the very first steps into the structure. At the entrance, massive doors, Narsi flags and a beautiful, bright orange, glass-covered front façade greet you. Upon entering, you see the widely spaced reception area. To its right is a waiting area, where the chairs reset amidst an in-lit mini pond and to its left is a voluminous product showcase space. Lofty walls display carpentry tools that depicts the evolution of carpentry as an art form, alongside inspirational quotes and chair designs by famous designers like Hans Wegner, George Nelson and Charles R Mackintosh.
Moving ahead, the ground floor boasts of a one-of-its-kind tech-savvy experiential center for visitors and clients. Equipped with three touch display stations used for presentations, it also showcases the timeline of Narsi’s accomplishments since its inception. This floor houses mini-conference rooms and a wide workstation as well. A beautiful floating spiral staircase, made of high density fibre, connects all the three floors.
On the second floor, an upscale conference room is fitted with 62inches-wide screen for a smooth video conferencing experience, and a beautiful stick chandelier ceiling made of more than 750 pipes serves as a statement piece. The floor also includes the designers’ workspace surrounded by awe-inspiring wooden carvings, and a lobby overlooking the showcase area and the manufacturing floor. The director’s cabin on this floor is inspired by wood art and is as raw as it gets.
The highlight of the design is the managing director’s cabin on the topmost floor. His workstation is carved out of single-wood. What further adds to the beauty of the cabin is the 360-degree view it offers of the whole plant. Little elements in the factory - like a rare-to-find charkha from Jagarnathpuri - speaks volumes of the fact that Narsi, though leaping into the future, is deeply rooted in their Indian beliefs and traditions.
The manufacturing unit that forms the other half of the site is designed to perfection as well. Keeping in mind the main goal of boosting productivity, every area of the building has been strategically placed and inter-connected for smooth functioning of everyday activities.
With cotta marble flooring and an entrance width of 40m wide X 90m long, the factory houses high-tech machineries imported from Germany and Italy. Every machine here is connected with LAN connection and thus can be controlled from anywhere across the plant and even left to work overnight. The sensors surrounding the machines, turn it off every time a human being comes close to it, thereby safeguarding every employee. The saw dust that is collected by the Dust Collector in the factory is used for making briquettes that are used by industries for heating of boilers. Most of the wooden waste is repurposed in the furniture making process. This floor also has a section where certified skill development training takes place, as a part of Narsi’s association with Skill India campaign.
