“We chose Tata because, in the past, I worked in the utilities and real-estate development businesses and was familiar with Tata Steel.  The steel is of good quality, durable and is the most-valuable component that will lead the project to success,” Chalermphon said.

“Tata is determined to offer diverse steel products by using modern technology for the utmost benefit, including products that help reduce construction time and withstand the environment,” Songsak commented.  He said the steel for the condo project will come from three Tata plants to help keep construction on schedule.

To be located on Jomtien Soi 15, the 1.5 billion baht CETUS will feature two buildings with a combined 310 units.  One building will be 49 stories and feature 294 units.  The other building will stand four stories tall and offer 16 units.  The entire plan calls for a natural theme inside and outside the condos, featuring ocean views for most units.

Chalermphon said construction is scheduled to be complete by the third quarter of 2015 with CEO Engineers Co. serving as the engineering company and T. Peerakrit Co. as the contractor.  The environmental impact report has been finished and sales have reached 95 percent, he said.
