Chicago architecture firms are getting more and more desperate to help local restaurants, according to a report from India’s National Institute of Architectural Education.
“A lot of the firms that we are recruiting from are trying to be as good as we are,” said K.P. Chikandani, the institute’s deputy director of education and research.
The Institute, which is currently hiring a new batch of architecture graduates for the next few years, is also encouraging the hiring of local architects for its projects.
But many of the graduates, including many of those working on the Chicago architecture projects, are now worried about the economic repercussions of their new jobs.
“We are looking to hire the right people, but what we need is the right skills.
And if we can’t get the right talent, we will have to find someone else,” Chikanyani said.
The institute is also seeking to build up a network of partners in the design, construction and design of restaurants.
One of those partners is the National Development Institute of India, a joint venture between the Indian government and several private institutions that promotes sustainable development and development of the country’s agriculture.
The NDII recently awarded $2.2 million in grants to four Indian universities and other institutions to develop a course for young architects and developers.
Chibbering for a restaurant Chikani and other architects are worried that they are going to have to start by building out a business plan, but they are also trying to find the right partners for their projects.
“I don’t think we will be able to find partners for a business that is built on technology,” said Chibbers, adding that the lack of local talent has made it difficult for local firms to compete.
“We want to do our best to build out a good brand and have a good reputation for our work,” he said.
“But the way we are going about this, we are not getting the right help from the governments and the private sector.”
