The national ICT and digital services provider, Sri Lanka Telecom PLC recently entered into an agreement with Nemra Properties Ltd., a BOI approved property development and construction company in Sri Lanka, to power five major condominium projects that are currently under construction in Colombo city.
The agreement signing took place recently at SLT premises in Colombo Fort, with SLT CEO Kiththi Perera and Chief Sales and Regional Officer Imantha WIjekoon signing on behalf of the company while Director Jude Rozarius signed on behalf of Nemra Properties. Several other representatives from both companies were also present to witness the signing of this landmark agreement between the two companies.
Under the newly-formed partnership, SLT will provide the ICT infrastructure for five different condominium projects and upcoming projects with 42 units. For the residents of the condominiums, the involvement of SLT in these projects translates into crystal clear voice communication services, ultra-fast and superior broadband connectivity provided through fibre technology, as well as the next revolution in entertainment television via PEO TV. Rozarius gave his view on the significance of the partnership saying, “We have been in the construction business for 15 years, first in Saudi Arabia and then in Sri Lanka. During these 15 years, we have been recognised and awarded many times over for our high quality materials, innovative designs and timely workmanship. Therefore, what we most value and look for in a business partner is their excellence in quality of services, innovativeness and reliability. This is the main reason why we had no second thoughts about selecting SLT to be our partner for these major luxury condominium projects, because of SLT’s reputation for excellence and proven track record in the past. Through our partnership with SLT, I am confident that we will be able to deliver our promises to our clients, and provide them with unique and luxurious lifestyles.”
Wijekoon said, “We are truly honoured to have been selected as the partner of choice by Nemra Properties and we appreciate the confidence that they have placed on us. SLT is passionate about ensuring that people enjoy higher standards of living in their day to day lives. I am confident that SLT is in a strong position to act as a key enabler for this due to our ICT capabilities, strengths and expertise. We assure Nemra Properties that their confidence placed on us will be rewarded and that they will be able to deliver the promises made to their clients to provide unique and luxurious lifestyles within close proximity to Colombo.”
SLT will also provide the backbone necessary for “smart buildings” for all condominiums that will facilitate the transformation of ordinary lives of residents into truly digital lifestyles in the near future.
Nemra Properties has already completed four successful construction projects in Sri Lanka. Its main focus is on design and construction, managing construction projects as well as developing resident and commercial real estates.
