EDC Limited is a premier financial institution in Goa developed a vast land area of about 1, 77,000 sq.mts. At Patto Panjim in 1985 to create a business centre for the city of Goa. The infrastructure had to be revamped and the roads, footpaths and services had to be upgraded. The entire area was re-visited and the hierarchy of spaces identified, zones demarcated, roads and traffic flow regulated, with providing footpaths at one level making it a pedestrian friendly complex.
The Redevelopment of PATTO PLAZA, a Commercial public land space in Capital City of Panaji- Goa, was hugely successful due to personal interest, creativity and integrity of Mr Rahul Deshpande, his brilliance in Architecture of public spaces combined with his training in Engineering, and his great team at Ms Rahul Deshpande and Associates, who were the Project Consultants for EDC Ltd, a premier public sector undertaking of Government of Goa. The Redevelopment of Patto Plaza, completed in year 2013, was a difficult project due to existing continued use of this 17 hectares of prime public commercial land space in Panaji, where buildings of several public sector, government as well as private sector, stood constructed and used. It was also difficult, due to uncertainties of location of underground services which were about 20 years old then. It was a proud moment for EDC Ltd when the Patto Plaza redevelopment with completely new infrastructure, layout, with increased parking spaces was completed under supervision of Ms Rahul Deshpande and Associates.
M/s Rahul Deshpande & Associates were engaged as Architects for our Commerce College at Cujira, Goa. It was a pleasure to work with a Complete Professional, Creative and Solution Oriented Team. For their high standards of service and quality we give them our highest recommendations
We worked with Rahul's team on Valpoi Bus Stand which won many awards. His designs were extremely thoughtful and creative. Very collaborative in their approach
You put great effort into making our project turn out the best it can. Your work is impeccable. Thank you!
Working with Rahul's team was a pleasant experience. They bettered the brief and were very prompt and professional in their commitment to the project.
It was a great pleasure working with the team and we will do so whenever we need any design, construction or engineering services. We consider RDA as our partner and not a service provider.
We were extremely happy, not only myself but the whole family, with the layout, the space and facility available at the bungalow. Through their design, lot of space was allotted for all occasions like family gathering, place to entertain guests and space for children to play

Hi Rahul, What A roof!!! It's a stunning piece of Architecture. Calm and peaceful- and yet flamboyant in a wonderfully energizing way.
The relationship between Rahul and us was amicable and enjoyable; even dissent was enjoyable! We ended up not just with a beautiful house that we love living in, but with a lasting and close friendship. If I were to ever build a house again, I would do it with none other than Rahul.
Rahul has trendy creative approach, good technical knowledge, effective planning skills and efficient in execution of his projects. He has tremendous patience and I have observed all his clients, most of them are now his long term friends and I am one among them!
Overall, it has been a pleasure to deal with the RDA staff. We built a nice building and we also made good friends in the process. Most visitors have commented about the world class standard of our new building. For the employees, it is a joy to come to work every day.
Working with Rahul has been an absolute pleasure. He is a visionary, who combines creativity with a great knowledge of planning: something which is extremely important. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rahul and his team for their support and commitment and look forward to having many more exciting years of working together.
Our industry had to be constructed fast and within budget. The RDA team's creative and professional approach helped us to achieve our goal. The tendering and estimation was through and helped us enormously in getting a better price.
The RDA team was indeed professional throughout, always giving importance to Client's interest. The design aspects are thoughtful, creative and importantly cost effective.
