Following to his next change as Senior Architect, at Sidus Architects & Engineers (formally Sidus Infotech) he was assigned to set up the department of architecture where he stood up to challenge and developed quality systems for internal working as well as systems for deliveries from the department. Considering his past experience & record with HSCC, here also he has been assigned to take care of ISO certification requirements and its companywide implementation. Again Mr. Chourey performed to the expectation and Sidus too got ISO certification during his tenure of association.

B. Customer
Is the King, Manoj knows that he is always here to serve them with best of his professional competence. He strongly believes that customer satisfaction is the key to success in any given business. Especially in service sector where, change, requirements, expectations are dynamic. It is even more challenging to satisfy the customer as if they are doing their own job. Here my goal is to win total confidence. Mr. Chourey has been interacting with the client right from business development till completion, presenting ideas & facts about project specifics, budgets, schedules, plans and also helping them to identify & select vendors. He has been very successful in most of the vocation to grab the job and deliver through client’s satisfaction. As mentioned varied scale of projects both in terms of size & cost he has been associated with the projects, budgeted for as big as 8.5 Billion and as small as USD-20,000 (please refer to the list of Major Projects, a separate attachment).

C. Team
No individual can achieve significant, it’s a team who plays & shares success. Manoj take total ownership of the situation and work with the team to deliver the best. For him a team is an always growing phenomenon, includes not only who is involved but also who has come across he is an excellent team player not only professionally but also extend towards personal social aspects of it. Beyond the dedicated team members he has got, in terms of overall team size, he has always been working in a good size. The core team size throughout his career is fluctuating between Six – Twenty but in his peak load he used to lead a team of more than 50 people and now considering these many number of people in consulting scenario, it’s remarkable. The full fledged composed team he was supported with architects, engineers, Draftsman, Site coordinators also the team working with his as sub-consultants was lead by him now that makes the numbers even bigger. Since Mr. Chourey started at senior position he had been dealing with core team of 4-6 architects, 1-2 Interior designers and 10-15 draftsmen.

D. Dedication
This is one of Mr. Chouery’s core assets. When he says ‘I take ownership of situation’ he am fully dedicated to achieve what has been planned for. He always loves to work under sense of responsibility towards achieving something beyond. He says, his dedication is totally unreasonable and only he only looks for the reasons for success.

E. Systematic approach
Mr. Chourey has a simple working philosophy => ‘Plan => enable => work => monitor & review => deliver => get feedback => learn & update. Manoj always knew that when one deliver quality it always boosts and it’s always a win-win situation and heart of it is it gives confidence to client to rely & offer more & more business

ownership thus resulting growth. Manoj believes in creating opportunities rather than expecting the same.

F. Technology
Today is world of technology; Manoj is always striving to keep himself updated with latest trends technology. He has hunger to learn and grow; he is always a global learner. Technology to him is a tool for efficient & smart working. Every single time, Manoj is in look-out to upgrade and enhance his skills not only that he has always been implementing it beautifully to real working scenario.

G. Knowledge
Knowledge gives the edge over this competitive world this is my key understanding towards this word. However implementation of knowledge is one aspect which always gives me an edge over my domain.

3. Duties & responsibilities
Professionally Mr. Chourey has grown from a trainee architect to the Senior / Lead Architect. This growth has been witnessed various roles, responsibilities through the projects of various status, scale, team size, location, regions and clients. There has been tremendous experience and challenges which have been dealt successfully by him to meet the client satisfaction and beyond. This document below is just to outline his extreme exposure with respect to tech-managerial role he played as an integrated duties & responsibilities. Mr. Chourey is currently working in capacity of a Senior Architect / Manager (for recent past 3 years) and in his past career he has been holding positions for Project Architect / Manager and a Deputy Manager-architecture (in past 6 years) in his mid career and as an assistant manager –architecture and a Junior / Trainee Architect (initial 3-4 years) in his early career. The spectrum of role played is outland herein below for appreciation:-

i. Senior / lead: last 3 years. Since July’2006 Manoj has been holding senior technical position with various organizations. His management capabilities have been always appreciated by higher management. When he was working with HSCC he was having direct report to Executive Director (Design) and then with Sidus Architects & engineers he was heading the department with direct report to Director (Production) and managing Director. With the Halcrow he was also responsible for construction and execution and having direct reporting to Regional Director. Having said above, there is a clear positive professional growth in his responsibilities and team sizes he lead. ii. Responsible for client interactions & management Right from his career start Mr. Chourey is in direct interaction with client initially as an assistant to seniors but not for long, soon he has grown enough to handle this portion of his profession, as I remember Manoj has been presenting

business, prospects, concepts, technical aspects, budgets & estimates to the client since late 2002 it was about 3yeras he practically initiated his career. This domain was soon become his own baby when he joined Sidus Architects & engineers when he was positioned at head of the department and was responsible for inflow of business, business process, optimization, and development and this time remarkable he was dealing with international clients mainly in Middle Eastern region but there are few from Europe and few from America as well. His performance can be appreciated when it is said that during his tenure the Architecture Department got business in of about USD-100,000 with expected profit of about USD-10,000 which was actually very well appreciated by board of directors.

iii. Team building & responsibility distribution This area of elaboration makes Manoj standing at conveniently preferred position and far on away from the rest of the crowd of his peer group. He has exceptional capability to build a team; his understanding to the requirements gives him clarity to select most suitable resources. Following to the identification of task he uses a concept of ‘work breakdown’ where he carefully define the work packages which can be then allocated to a smaller team that way he makes sure the team has a quantifiable targets to achieve and hence it’s that easy for him to keep track of each of the activities. Moreover depending on the job priority it’s easier for him to adjust critical path and adjust the available float between packages. This is the key for all his successful deliverables. Not to mention he uses Information and Technology to the best possible way and the available IT tools are used to deal with complex coordination situations. iv. Total project cycle delivery When Mr. Chourey start the job he then look in to the whole future of the project and his experience with big scale projects helps him to look in to total project life cycle. Towards defining goal to the specific job he foresee all phases of a construction project i.e. Concept Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation, Execution & review at various phases. He always tries to look in to resource requirements now only for present day but also for the future needs this helps him to take ready and realistic decision which may be required to be taken and to make commitment for dates and financial issues to the clients. v. Monitoring & tracking The job leads by Mr. Chourey always has a plan. Depending on the requirement it’s dynamically adjusted using float and critical path methods. All work also has an integrated master schedule which includes all team. A continuous monitoring of the base plan is done using weekly / monthly and task assignments through time sheet system. The plan is always tracked with latest info for latest happening status. Critical activities are highlighted to continuous tracking in order to ensure a well delivered plan. vi. Design management This head is the perfect place to put some light on Mr. Chourey’s fast-track performance. It can be easily understood that design of a building of a specialty projects like hospitals are very-very dynamic, this is not only due to its specific and stringent requirement & compliance but also due to multiple organizational scenarios, always upgrading medical equipment aspects and fast updates in

conceptual changes due to stakeholder’s demand. This makes the whole cycle very complex. Everything needs to be put in a table for a lead designers for his working and down the line clear and most up-to- date information has to be passed on to all relevant parties. This is a huge coordination task when we talk about the kind of projects Manoj has been involved in. He is an excellent manager of information he uses a infomatrix approach to keep the flow to max he also uses many other IT tools to track down the information and maintain the history of them. He, as an integrated responsibility coordinates amongst various parties both technical side as well as management side. Management side they are clients, project management team, planning team and technical side, his own domain alongside core construction teams.

vii. Construction coordination Mr. Chourey is also visiting construction site to address in-site issues as well as to ensure the implementation of design intent and technical integration. He foresees the future issues like building services integration and resolve them with design team to take execution forward. Lot of time and money has been saved by him under this shoulder for an instance Electrical Substation area in SMRC project was kind of separated from statuary approval point of view and was dealt by a designated separate agency. During that approval process there were lot of changes were happening but lead designers / architects were working on the faced system only considering the architectural point of concern and meanwhile based on basic design intent were also on going at actual site appreciating criticality Manoj played a key role to integrate all platforms to satisfy all parties and the requirements towards a satisfactory completion of that portion of area. viii. Business development & presentations Mr. Manoj Kumar Chourey hasn’t been currently positioned to shoulder this particular area of his expertise but he had already a successful record with Sidus Architects & Engineers in his past where he was the only responsible management executive to handle this with clients. He worked with BD team for various business presentations leading bagful of business for the company. During these presentations he was responsible to present design ideas, company competency and ability to deliver, project estimates & costing for various scale of projects of international location. Many times these presentations are one-onone but then more challenging on-line presentation were also part of his remarkable past. ix. Quality Systems Mr. Chourey in his current position hasn’t been involved in conceptualizing the quality systems but in his past he has been one of the core members of team responsible for. Systems regards to his internal department working as well as the quality systems like ISO certification has been very well handled by him towards achieving certification at HSCC & Sidus. (Please refer to 2A for).

At a Junior / Trainee Architect : Mr. Manoj’s learning sprit was at peak this time, hard working & self motivated to handle responsibilities, was fortunate enough to work at much higher level than just a trainee.

This particular area gives Mr. Chourey an edge over others of his peer experience group.

With this very core philosophy of understanding, He always keep repeating to himself that I am here because of the customer and my ultimate duty is not only making customer happy but much beyond; making them delighted. Principally all his actions (external or internal) are always oriented towards customer benefit. Everyone who is affected or going to be affected by Manoj’s professional actions considered as a customer to him and he always make sure that my actions become the best possible option available for them. Client being the ultimate customer, I take ownership of me & my core working team and I consider all engineering disciplines, contractors, project managers are customers of mine. I always maintain professional integrity and try to deliver beyond expectations, i.e. at least to the next level of next obvious. As a leader I never had a problem I have always converted the so called problem in to the issues & looked in to the same as the possibility of a creative solution. In other words…. so for all practical purposes I usually do not have any problems but the issues with various possible solutions. Success for me means customer delight & appreciation of team work.
