  CUSTOMISING LIMITATIONS
  We regret that changes that affect the elevation, structure, or plumbing systems of the building cannot be carried out. Any changes that encroach into common areas and setbacks of the building, or infringe Corporation rules and regulations are also not feasible.

  Requests for additional ceiling points, fan points, or power points can be incorporated only if such requests are received before casting the roof of the apartment, since the necessary pipe lines have to be laid in the slab linking the points to the Distribution Board.

  Requests for the deletion of walls, lofts and counters, or for the provision of wall outlets for plumbing or electrical lines can be incorporated only if such requests are received before the commencement of brickwork and plastering in the apartment.

  Changes in plumbing, electrical and civil works cannot be accepted after plastering, since chipping plastering, laying pipes and subsequent refinishing leaves unsightly undulations on walls. However, at this stage, if flooring has not been laid, extra T.V and telephone points at the skirting level can be accepted.

  The location of beams, or dropped slabs, may reduce the internal height of lofts over doors and windows. Lofts can be provided only if they have a minimum 30 cm internal height, which permits plastering.

  For ceramic tile flooring, we can indicate the required quantities and provide a rebate if the client wishes to supply the tiles.

  We do not undertake marble flooring, since it generates many problems regarding colour, grains, fissures and stains.

  European water closets cannot be converted into Indian water closets.

  We offer a standard paint colour for interiors, which is designed to match the colours of doors and windows, grills and common areas. These paints are mixed as a single batch for a project. Alternate colours, if specified, may sometimes not be available in the market, delaying a project. Paint colours also tend to vary with each consignment making it difficult to match colours for subsequent repairs and touching up. As such, we do not accept a change from the standard colour.

  We choose reliable makes of sanitary ware and CP fittings for a project. Water, sewage and waste water lines are laid to match the inlets and outlets of these makes of sanitary ware and CP fittings, which are provided in the sample flat. If we are intimated of your requirements before the plastering stage, alternate makes and types of sanitary wares can be installed. Changes are not accepted subsequently. The make of sanitary wares provided in the sample flat can be provided in alternate colours. Changes are not accepted for CP fittings, since such changes cause alignment problems.

  Frames with grills and glass for window air-conditioners can be provided at any time, so long as the external appearance of the building is not altered.
