There is a word in Japanese – ‘kaizen’ – that loosely translates into English as ‘constant and never-ending improvement’. It’s a word that could be used to describe Nadir’s approach to his work.
Nadir points out that engineers are always trying to improve things – to research and learn and be better than they were yesterday. Some might see the need to be constantly coming up with more efficient designs as a burden, but Nadir sees it as an opportunity. He says, ‘there’s nothing quite like the feeling of coming across a challenge and devising the best and most efficient solution’.
He enjoys the ever-increasing emphasis on low carbon design, and the need it brings to think in different ways. Nadir is a realist, but also an optimist. Every step he takes towards a better, more sustainable design makes him feel like he is helping to ‘save the world’, and he means it. ‘It feels like we're changing the world for the better.’
