Operating since 1998, the EMI India office serves a diverse range of clients in all regions of India as well as other South Asian nations.  Recent projects include hospitals, schools, children’s homes, ministry centres and transformational businesses.  Recently we have received project interest from more than 10 mission hospitals for design work.

EMI India desires an experienced Architecture Project Leader to join its team in New Delhi.  The current staff includes a mix of architects and engineers, from India and from abroad.  The primary responsibility of the role will be leading design projects for Indian clients including mission hospitals. This involves leading multi-disciplinary teams to the project site, and managing the production of the project in the office.  Other responsibilities will include project development activities and detailed design of selected projects.

Whilst this position is based in New Delhi, it will require semi-regular travel for projects around India (once in ~3 months).  Work is primarily in English, but a basic level of Hindi is required to live successfully in Delhi. There will be a period of full time Hindi study for 3-6 months before starting project.
