100Pillars Constructions - How it Started?
Srinivas Jayaram came across friends who were struggling to find the right contractors with professional construction experience. There were no promising builders, also there were lot of things which was unknown to his friends that are crucial in the construction process. This knowledge gap among the people concerning vital issues with regard to construction, except a mere idea of their home or project became the driving force for 100Pillars Constructions. Working on this idea to bridge such existing gaps has led 100Pillars Construction to take shape and to create transparency in their client dealings. Srinivas Jayaram's strong real estate and digital marketing background enabled him and his team to ideate the complete industry in terms of competitive research, historical data sources and key players.
In the process of research and through experience, the team observed that there is a severe gap in the construction industry, and this whole process is quite cumbersome from the customer’s endpoint. The conclusions from the survey/ research gave the start of points for the establishment of 100Pillars Construction. According to statistics -
- 99% of the Construction Project Face:- No Fixed/Fair Pricing- No End to End Ownership- Zero Smart Technology- No Safety Measures Incorporated for Labours- Conventional Construction- Difficulty in the Management of Labours
- 75% of the Projects Face:- Project Delays- No Raw Material Transparency- Not Utilizing Certified Experts- Shortage of Material & Debris Disposal- Neighborhood Problems
- 30% of the Projects Face:- Lack of Approval Knowledge (BBMP & BDA Etc)- Skipping Payment Schedules- Mis Communications- Irregular Updates from Both the Ends (Customers & Contractors)- Builders Withdrawal from Half Constructions
It is because of these issues that there exists a grim trust deficit n the construction industry and the whole process of construction turns out to be very hefty and painful for the customers. Problems like these can’t be fixed by just being an aggregator, and for the same reason, 100Pillars developed a system of end to end ownership and management on behalf of the customers.
The team at 100Pillars Constructions classifies potential clients on the basis of approximate budget rates into three segments of Low, Medium, and High classes. This made it simple for the company to bisect their needs according to the competitive pricing of various services and materials in the industry. On a similar basis, the company came up with three simple package models called Basic, Standard & Premium, based on the services and materials provided. 100Pillars offers a very user-friendly website. Further, the team made sure that all the information be clean and clear so that their customers know exactly what they get and expect from the company before getting into the agreement with 100Pillars Constructions.
Facilitating a wide range of exemplary services, 100Pillars Constructions has emerged to be the first company to think about and work on the concept of clear professional transparency in the construction industry.

100Pillars Constructions - Startup Challenges
Construction is a long and hefty process. Challenges are bound to happen, given there are so many people involved. One of the major challenges 100Pillars, as a construction company face is labor management. Unlike any other field, manpower is quite unsteady in the construction field.
"We often see laborers not turning up to the site along with taking long vacations in the middle of the process. In order to prevent this from happening, with one of our projects we work with at least 8 to 10 teams of masons and keep shuffling them from one project to another".
The construction market is extremely dynamic because of the changing rates in the market. The local contractors keep changing their working rate and neglect the quality of materials they use and make false promises for their own profit, disregarding the client. To resolve this, 100Pillars keep experimenting with the pricing of their construction packages. One of the major factors that keep 100Pillars distinguished from other construction firms is their exceptionally detailed quality specifications for the prices of each package that they offer.
