My name is Narjes Shawabkeh. I worked in the Ministry of Public Works and Housing since 1997 in the field of architectural design and have held several positions, including the Head of the Building Codes Department of the Jordan Green Building Council and the Head of the Department of Architectural Design in the Directorate of Buildings & Projects and Director of Buildings Studies.
I have 22 years of experience in architectural design and am a member of the Accessibility Committee of the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. I worked with JICA in the field of Accessibility and was a member of the committee responsible for updating the building codes that were released in 2019 for people with disabilities by the Jordan Green Building Council and am a member of Jordan's Engineers Association.
After 3 years of early retirement to focus on my family and their needs, I am now part of the Accessible Jordan team as an Accessibility Consultant.
This is a new starting point for me and I am excited to continue working in this field and to give all my potential and knowledge to strive together towards a better future for all.
