While Fariborz Sahba was commissioned to design the monumental terraces of the Shrine of the Báb, one of the most important holy places for Bahá’ís, he was also appointed as Project Manager of the Mount Carmel Bahá’i Projects, estimated at CND$400,000,000 to be one of the largest projects in the Middle East.

In addition to the terraces of the Shrine of the Báb, the Mount Carmel Projects included a large complex of three buildings for the administrative centre of the Bahá’i Faith, known as the Arc Project, designed by Canadian Architect Hossein Amanat.

As Project Manager, Fariborz Sahba was responsible for the execution, quality control, financial and technical management of this most challenging and high-standard project, in which some 45 consultants, contractors and sub-contractors from around the world were engaged. The project was completed most successfully, on schedule and below its approved budget.
