Chapter 318: Collaboration
Jian Ai smiled and said, “Hello, my name is Xiao Ai. I’m meeting your chairman at six.”
Chen Lei had informed the front desk in advance. When the receptionist heard Jian Ai’s name, she revealed an enlightened expression. Then, she pointed to the right side of the hall. “The elevator is over there. Go straight to the twenty-first floor. When you reach there, the chairman’s secretary will receive you.”
After entering the elevator, Bai Zhou couldn’t help but say, “This corporation building is too old-fashioned.”
Jian Ai smiled and said nothing. Many buildings were like this nowadays, and they all didn’t have a sense of design. They were tall and squarish buildings, and at most, there would be some decorations on the roof. After all, these buildings were built in the last century. At that time, their aesthetics were like this, but now, they weren’t beautiful enough.
As a corporation building, it was a little too serious.
The elevator reached the twenty-first floor. The door opened, and a female secretary in a business suit was already waiting at the elevator.
Although Chen Lei had already reminded his secretary that the person he would meet today was an underage girl, the secretary could not help but be secretly shocked when she saw Jian Ai.
“Please follow me!”
The secretary was shocked for a moment before changing into a professional smile and leading the way.
She followed the secretary to the chairman’s office. The secretary pushed the door open. “Chairman, they’re here.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the secretary turned around and gestured for Jian Ai to enter.
On the sofa in the reception area, Chen Lei stood up with a smile to welcome her.
Jian Ai also smiled and greeted, “Uncle Chen!”
The two of them shook hands. Chen Lei’s gaze landed on Bai Zhou. “Mr. Bai, we met again!”
Bai Zhou also nodded slightly. “Hello!”
Apart from Jian Ai and Bai Zhou, the eight core project team members working on the first piece of land were also present. Chen Lei let them sit on the sofa, and the secretary quickly made coffee.
Chen Lei’s gaze swept across everyone before he smiled at Jian Ai. “It looks like you already have a complete plan for your project!”
Jian Ai wasn’t modest and nodded. “That’s why I dared to come over and talk to Uncle Chen about collaboration!”
Chen Lei couldn’t help but chuckle. He leaned back in his chair. “If Uncle isn’t wrong, you want me to provide construction materials and the construction team, right?”
Chen Lei had been in the real estate world for many years, while Jian Ai’s East Sea Real Estate had just been established. If they wanted to start a project, he naturally did not need to think to know what they needed.
“That’s right. Uncle Chen also knows that my company is new. The current project is also the company’s first project. We don’t have any familiar construction material suppliers, and the company doesn’t have its own construction team.” Jian Ai didn’t beat around the bush and said to Chen Lei, “So the first thing I thought of was Uncle Chen’s company!”
“Oh?” Chen Lei couldn’t help but raise his eyebrows. He looked at Jian Ai and said, “We can’t be careless about the construction material supply. If anything goes wrong, it will destroy the entire project. Xiao Ai trusts me that much?”
Jian Ai smiled and said bluntly, “Although I’ve only met Uncle Chen twice, I’ve always believed in my judgment of people. I believe that Uncle Chen will provide me with the best construction materials. Of course, I’ll also give Uncle Chen the most reasonable price. I won’t ask for a discount just because I’m young.”
“Haha…” When Chen Lei heard Jian Ai’s words, he couldn’t help but laugh. “Xiao Ai, don’t worry. Although I’m a businessman, I’m not a businessman who only cares about benefits. If the collaboration works, Uncle Chen will give you the most reasonable price.”
