Nadhi was founded in 2008 with the core idea of bringing manufacturing style supply chain thinking to the construction industry, in the spheres of both technology and business processes. The founding team’s academic backgrounds and professional experience is a blend uniquely suited to exploit the opportunities in this space. Kalyan Vaidyanathan and Ravi Mundoli have civil engineering degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and masters’ degrees from Cornell University (Kalyan) and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (Ravi).
After a spell as a structural engineer in the field at Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger, Kalyan joined i2 Technologies, Cambridge, MA, USA where he was Product Line Manager managing the Scheduling product line. He took 3 enterprise software products from concept to commercial, and also has widely published on Lean Construction and technology issues for improving operational efficiency in construction including a book chapter in the Construction Supply Chain Handbook titled “IT Opportunities in Construction Supply Chain Management”.
Ravi also worked at i2 Technologies, initially in their Transportation and Logistics group, and later was Release Manager for i2′s Infrastructure Services group, responsible for creating the technology which enabled the seamless integration of i2′s suite of supply chain management products. After i2, he led the team at YASU Technologies(acquired by SAP), Hyderabad which delivered multiple versions of their flagship product QuickRules.
Nadhi’s team of functional consultants and technologists reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of our approach to construction and comprises people with diverse engineering (civil, electrical, mechanical, computer science) and management (business, construction) backgrounds with a wealth of experience in working in various geographies (India, USA, Singapore, Dubai) and industries.
Our industry and academic advisors include some of the thought leaders in construction management in India and abroad, and we were incubated from the IIT Madras Research Park. Nadhi is the Chennai hub of the Institute for Lean Construction Excellence (ILCE), a pan-India industry body dedicated to revolutionizing construction practices in the country.
