First International Financial Center (FIFC) is located in Mumbai’s coveted financial district. Attention to detail plays a key role in the building’s competitiveness as a major headquarters destination for multinational companies.


The lobby is airy with neutral palettes and features a slice of India’s history with stone carvings similar to those found from hand-carved works in ancient Buddhist caves. The customized design of the KONE MonoSpace® elevators blends in well with the surroundings. Thanks to KONE’s planning, communication and project execution, the customer met its tight construction deadline of one year. “We were focused on pre-planning from the initial design stage. And although decision making was a team effort, all customer communication was done through a single pointof contact,” says KONE Project Manager Chandrashekhar Kanthi.
