Ashak Nathwani

Ashak Nathwani, a former NDY director of 33 years, has been appointed director of sustainable design, facilities management & building services in the Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning at the University of Sydney.

“I will be looking after these degrees and certificates from all aspects including course content and student enrolments,” Mr Nathwani told The Fifth Estate. “I am now also a senior lecturer and coordinator of various units including BIM, mechanical services, building services, project management and operational facilities management.

“At the same time I have also been appointed a director of ARBS Foundation, involved with scholarships and grants for deserving HVAC industry participants.”

Mr Nathwani was also made an honorary associate this month at the university, for services over and above allocated duties.

Mr Nathwani retired from NDY in 2011 after 33 years to pursue an academic career at the University of Sydney, taking on a director and senior lecturer role, and pursuing a PhD in comfort and HVAC systems.
