RIBA Chartered Practice

The Royal Institute of British Architects Chartered Practice accreditation is only awarded to those practices that adhere to the strict accreditation targets to ensure a high level of design and service to each client, as well as the wider construction industry.  Judged against a common set of standards including working practices, quality assurance, professional indemnity insurance, employment practices and continuing professional development, each practice is scrutinised to ensure compliance, meaning a higher level of service for their clients.


The Association for Project Safety is the governing body for those professionals involved in the field of construction health and safety risk management.  Registered members are required to maintain their skills, knowledge and experience through continuing professional development.
