Saahil’s engineering mindset serves him best in finding innovative solutions to complex problems. He strives to work closely with the client and end users as their trusted advisor and to develop fit-for-purpose solutions that best meet their objectives. He facilitates collaboration, coordination, and communication between the stakeholders to drive the project towards success. Saahil does not believe in the cookie-cutter design approach—he considers each project unique and deserving of a tailored solution. He prefers to anticipate challenges, but should a challenge unexpectedly arise, he acts on it in a timely manner, discusses it with necessary parties, and analyzes all options to develop the solution that best serves the needs of the project.
