BCC Is Born
At each stage there may have been setbacks but what kept him going was his soaring spirits that allowed his journey to progress further. Too eager to make a mark, he didn’t waste any time pondering and joined hands with his brother-in-law in 1988 in a contractual property business that lasted till 1993. During its short stint, their association built small size apartments. If there were stumbling blocks and delays in the voyage, there was also a lot of learning for all those involved with BCC for whom it was hard work that translated into hope that boosted everyone’s self-assurance. After experiencing and understanding the construction business completely, an idea of a construction company of his own germinated in him. And thus, on 5th June, 1995, BCC - Bharat Construction Company was born.
"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to it - even if I do not have it in the beginning."
‘Give More’ Philosophy
It was the foremost objective of BCC to complement its projects with augmenting infrastructural facilities for the common man who resides at the landscaped housing complex and wants to enjoy all the benefits of modern lifestyle. As a consequence, BCC with its commitment to its ever-growing list of residents, hands out basic amenities like school for the residents within the vicinity of their residential colony.
But then, there are schools imparting standard education with precious little variation. But what’s the point of doing something that everyone seems to have perfected? The school envisioned by BCC is not the run-of-the-mill building with instructors commanding bookish behaviour but an institution where learning is refreshingly pleasurable, and not scholastic, moralistic or pedagogic amenities like school for the residents within the vicinity of their residential colony.

"Real estate is a business of steel and concrete, but it’s a fragile business."
It was his innate talent that led to arming Kumar Bharat with foresight and perceptiveness right early on in his childhood. Equipped with an instinctive eye to embrace any technological advancement, he does not allow any innovation to escape his attention. In terms of formal education too, he holds a remarkable list of credentials and hands-on experience in integrated project management, material management, systems and resource planning and budgetary control. His illustrious career spanning nearly ten years has only seen an upward graph.
Having led a large diversified conglomerate with a strong presence in real estate (Retail, Residential, Commercial, Hospitality, and Education & Healthcare), he has traveled widely to help him grasp the fundamentals of life, and learn to deliver with promised quality and time.
As a perceptive mind, what drives him most is his craving for innovation. He is the first builder in North India to have introduced the pre-cast technology at a time when either it was unheard of or was considered impractical.
It was Bharat's assurance and grand plans to start construction of approximately 9000 homes using precast that made people sit up and take note of the emerging trend in northern part of the country, and, today, we even see a couple of other well-known real estate companies foraying into it.
He keeps tabs on the state of development in the multifaceted profession of conceptual development across the world, and gives his inputs in space planning, research and construction management, and execution of the design. The current developmental upsurge in BCC's acceptance and recognition can be attributed to his forethought and well-timed alterations and modifications that he introduces from time to time. He is a perfect example of professionalism who knows how to deal with modern challenges through academia and practical outlook and leads an ever-progressive well-trained assembled team.
