The dissertation period gave me an opportunity to explore the field which has always intrigued me and where my interest was- that of facility planning. I am indebted to Dr. Vivek Desai – Director HOSMAC (India) Pvt. Ltd. for giving me an opportunity to work in his organization as there are but a handful of such organizations where I could have pursued such a study. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Hussain Varawalla- Sr. Architect HOSMAC (India) Pvt. Ltd., my guide who took a lot of efforts for my sake. I am also extremely grateful for the support provided by my seniors Mr. Sameer Mehta and Mr. Kapil Rawal who were a constant source of encouragement at HOSMAC. I would like to thank Brig. S.K. Puri, my guide, for having faith in me and I hope that I would be able to live up to his expectations. I am also indebted to my teachers Dr. S.G. Kabra and Dr. Hari Singh for their guidance throughout my academic career. Lastly but not the least I would like to thank my friends - Shekhar, Rupesh, Gaurav Tripathi and Benjamin for always being with me throughout my stay at IIHMR.
