Shiraz Jiwani, president and owner of Sherwood Park’s Aman Construction Group, is helping to build NAIT’s future. Jiwani’s focus on community led the company to contribute heavily to NAIT’s Centre for Applied Technologies, the JR Shaw School of Business and the Hokanson Centre for Culinary Arts. In addition to their support of NAIT, Jiwani and Aman have supported a wide variety of charitable organizations and community events, including the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital and the World Partnership Walk. In April, to recognize his commitment to both NAIT and the community as a whole, Jiwani was named the 2011 Distinguished Friend of the Institute. Jiwani’s company is also making strides encouraging green building practices, and is a member of the Canada Green Building Council.
