bti Life Journey

A Full History of bti and The Economic and Political Environment We Lived Through Since 1984.
1984 to 1985 - In 1984, Building Technology and Ideas started its journey in the real estate sector of Bangladesh with a small office beside the Cricket Stadium, in BRTC Building.
1990 to 1995 - The joint venture approach was founded and implemented by bti. Profits increased as cost of capital decreased substantially. Back then a landowner would own only 20% of apartments and developer 80%, whereas now it is split into 50/50. An average apartment’s price was 15 lacs, and in Gulshan, 30 lacs. Just to give you an idea, a bag of 1 kg of rice in 1990 was TK 21, and is now around TK 80. There was also a low number of property development companies and an abundance of land available for construction, so margins were high. In 1995 sales declined due to political turbulence.
2000 to 2004 - In the beginning of this era, we were suffering losses at an all time low. The number of competitors was exponentially growing and other developers were taking land from the landowners ahead of us because we were not willing to make commitments that we were not 100% confident we would be able to keep. However, eventually our conservative approach proved to be the best strategy as many developers failed to keep their promises and we developed a reputation of keeping our commitments We also significantly increased the number of our projects starting in 2001 and this is also when we first expanded to Chittagong.
2011 to 2015 - In 2011, we took branding to the next level. We renovated the 7th floor’s interior to give it a highly sophisticated look. To improve our company culture, we integrated our Core Values, something that every single employee in the company would have to live by, to share a common purpose. After 2011, the market had been recovering, and the current trend in 2015 shows a promising future for bti, confirming our position as the best real estate company.
1986 to 1989 - Financial times were tough. Cost of capital was high as land plots were bought and constructed on, and joint ventures were unheard of. However, competition at that time was negligible as there were only 3 real estate developers in the country: Eastern Housing Ltd., Property Development Ltd., and Building Technologies and Ideas. In 1989, we moved from BRTC Building to TMC Building in Eskaton.
1996 to 2000 - Sales were beginning to increase at a steep rate because we kept up with growing competition by maintaining our goodwill and reputation amongst our customers. In 1998 we had our mission and vision statements developed to give bti's company culture more structure. We were also awarded the IS0 9001 quality management system standard. In 2000, we moved to Celebration Point (our current office in Gulshan) from TMC Building (our old office in Eskaton).
2005 to 2010 - This was the era of brand building for bti. Sales were soaring once again; bti came up strong as one of the top real estate companies in the country, and we launched our Premium Collection apartments. Before that, we only had Classic Collection apartments. In 2009, however, the bubble burst for the real estate market, dragging down every major real estate developer, and obliterating the smaller ones. However, bti’s financial position still remained strong, as we had maintained the goodwill and reputation of our brand.
