When India embraced industrialization in 1995 by the virtue of emergent technologies, the market situation of MEP Consultancy services witnessed an upward graph. Nurturing the budding industries with note-worthy industry-specific solutions, V.S. Kukreja and Associates Pvt. Ltd. was able to mark its prominence long before the MEP Consultancy services gained momentum across the Indian landscape. A leading consultancy house rendering professional services in the field of designing and project management of various Building Engineering Services, V.S. Kukreja and Associates Pvt. Ltd. (VSKAPL) was incorporated in the year 1982 after taking over the parent body V.S. Kukreja & Associates which was established in the year 1969. Built on the ideologies of V.S.

Talking about his journey that led to the establishment of such an innovative and exemplary firm across the MEP Consultancy domain, V.S. Kukreja avers, "After completing my graduation in Electrical Engineering in the year 1967, I realized that traditional desk jobs or Govt. Jobs were not my cup of tea.
Pondering over what to do, I Incidentally met one of the leading Architects of that time and told him about my inclination towards lighting and electrical design. All of a sudden, he asked me whether I would be keen on designing the complete Electrical system for the expansion of a renowned College in Delhi. As soon as I agreed, I was provided all the drawings and about 10 days time to complete the job. Without the assistance of Computers & Calculators, I finished the job in 4 days. Not only he was pleasantly surprised but also handed me the cheque of an amount which was very much beyond my expectations. After an in detailed discussion, he advised me to start the consultancy work. That is how the V.S. Kukreja and Associates was started in November, 1969."
After commencing its journey in 1969, the firm got its first largest breakthrough with the project of complete Electrification of Pragati Maidan, for 3rdIndia International Trade Fair properly known as ASIA' 72 in 1972.
