The Baha’i Temple

In 1980, we were entrusted with a challenging assignment: to convert the dream of architect, Fariburz Sabha into concrete reality and construct the Baha’i House of Worship for the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahai's in India. Dr. Flint Neil & Partners, UK provided the structural design for this very complicated construction like the Sydney Opera House. Apart from several unique aspects, this lotus-shaped structure has not a single straight line; everything is in doubly curved shells that made measurements an extremely complicated process. Our designers, architects and engineers had the best opportunity to work with the best in concrete technology, formwork design, quality control and methods of construction to suit the thin shelves involved. The result of all our effort was a magnificent, engineering marvel that has won the sobriquet of ‘Taj Mahal of the 20th Century’!
