Ajay Nahar Chairman Nahar Projects
Nahar Projects has scaled great heights under the leadership of Architect & Developer Ajay Nahar.Since its inception in 2001, Nahar Projects has already developed over 10 lakhs square feet of construction.
Ajay, graduated in architecture from, Rachana Sansad’s Academy of Architecture, Mumbai and completed .Masters in Construction Project Management from Birmingham City University,UK . He is one of the very few developers who holds an architectural degree. Speaking of his multiple roles, he says, “As an architect in the real estate industry, the understanding of a project comes far easier to me. Architectural related queries are resolved on the site itself with the team instead of having to call a bunch of architects and organizing a meeting and delaying the project.” Being an architect and an avid traveller, he keeps himself up-to-date about the innovations and materials in the industry around the world and sources them himself, seldom needing inputs from foreign architects. This simple but efficient style of working has bagged him some of the prestigious awards viz. Young Architect of the Year 2010 and Best Business Practice by Accommodation Times in 2014 and recently adding Young achiever of the Year 2016 awarded by Mid- Day Real Estate Icon Awards .
According to Ajay, meeting the expectations of the buyers is always an interesting challenge and he tries to overcome that by delivering more than what was offered. “The brochure is made in the initial stage of the project, flats are promised and sold in a process, but the planning is continuous. Within the two to three year lifespan of the project, we try to integrate all the innovations and technology that gets introduced in the market in that time frame, which then become a pleasant surprise for the occupants,” he said.
Ajay works in collaboration and forms a team with impeccable sense of finishing and delivery as per international standards. To offer adequate amenities to the residents, he with his team brainstorms and calculates the life size factor which is essentially a ratio of the space of an individual in the house to the ratio of the space of amenities, so that the number of users get equal space from the amenities. The children play areas too are planned not only with a few swings and slides but with modern rock climbing areas, Lego structures and more.
Another successful feather in Ajay Nahar’scap is the Nahar Medical Center. The project is not just architecturally conceptualized and executed by him but he has also played a pivotal role in designing the business model, which ensures a successful venture. It has modern and people friendly environment. The facilities include ENT, Mammography, Bone Mineral Densitometry, Dental Treatment, Ophthalmology, Gynecology& Obstetrics, ECG & 2D echo, Advanced Pathology & Microbiology, Ultra-Sonography amongst many others. The Nahar Medical center was established with a view of adding to the holistic lifestyle of the residents in the vicinity.
Every year Nahar Projects along with Nahar Medical Center organises walkathon ‘Every step Counts’ It promotes the cause for a healthy lifestyle among people and donates a certain amount on every participation to a foundation that supports development of Children with special needs.
Planning your team right is the most important step in creating a solid organization. One wrong person or collaboration can delay the entire project, so be meticulous in choosing the people you work with. It is important to work and learn from each other in a non-bureaucratic environment and delegating the right task to the right individual. Time management respect for your and other people’s time, positive outlook and innovation are keys to success.
