1921 Obituary [1]

SHAPOORJE N. CHANDABHOY was born at Surat in 1850.

He was educated at Bombay, and joined his father's firm, receiving a training in architecture and civil engineering.

In 1880 he and his younger brother were admitted to partnership, continuing the business on the death of his father.

The partnership was dissolved in 1900, when he was joined by his nephew. In 1904 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and for a number of years was the only Parsi practising as an Architect holding that degree in Bombay. He designed palaces, hospitals, and office buildings for Native States and many buildings in Bombay, including spinning and weaving mills. He also acted as arbitrator in various 'natters connected with building works and fire insurance losses.

His death took place suddenly in Bombay on 13th September 1920, at the age of seventy. He became an Associate of this Institution in 1902.
