Currently PAND offers a comprehensive range of design and build services to fulfill the demands of MNC’s within the Asia Pacific region. From planning and concept stage to completion of each project, PAND works collaboratively and strategically with clients to deliver the projects with its current team of designers, project managers, quantity surveyors and construction teams.

In our design process, environmental, organizational, ergonomic and human factors all combine to create a holistic design tailored to the clients’ need. This is translated into higher productivity, greater creativity and flexibility and innovation.”, he added.
