Two Sri Lankan professionals, Engineer Peethamparam Divakaran and Architect Rohan Aluwihare, representing both Sinhala and Tamil major communities, will receive Awards of Excellence for the property development work they had successfully carried out during the years 2007 and 2008.

The duo will receive their awards at a felicitation ceremony, in London, today (10), organised by the world-famed Research Intelligence Unit (RIU) of the United Kingdom. 

The RIU has selected the two Sri Lankans to present the Awards of Excellence in recognition of their outstanding achievements and contribution in the field of Global Property Market and specifically identifying the property development work they carried out at Elerton Road Surbiton and Baker Lane, Mitcham, UK in the years 2007 and 2008.

Engineer Peethamparam Divakaran is a Peradeniya University graduate (1995), and the Managing Director of Timoshonco Engineering Company Ltd., which carries out the projects under the banner ‘White House Developments’. Divakaran, a multilingual, had used his skills in Rumanian and Polish languages for the management of construction teams from Rumania and Poland in carrying out the projects in the United Kingdom. 

Aluwihare, the Consulting Architect of Timoshonco Engineering Company Ltd., a graduate of the Moratuwa University (1986), will receive the prestigious Award of Excellence for his contribution towards the success of the global property market.

Divakaran had only the Sri Lankan passport at the time he ventured in to undertake the projects in the UK and his dedicated work, with the support of Architect Rohan, has kept the Sri Lanka flag flying high.

At present the Timoshonco Engineering Company Ltd. is busy with the ‘White House’ development work at Arthur Place, Bambalapitiya.
