RIBA North West

Based in Liverpool City Centre, the North West team undertakes a wide portfolio of activities that includes:


CPD North West: Chartered architects are required to maintain their professional competence throughout their careers. The CPD Unit organises a comprehensive range of events to help members meet those needs. In addition we work closely with allied professional institutes, including the Landscape Institute, Royal Town Planning Institute and Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Together we have developed a number of pan-professional events. Find out more about CPD.


Advanced Diploma in Professional Practice: The RIBA North West preparation course and examination are exemplars of Part III which is the final step for any aspiring architect to take into the practice of architecture. Conceived and administered here in the North West, this preparation course has enabled us over the years to build strong links between RIBA, architects in practice, and the North West Schools of Architecture. Together with the strength of the CPD unit this activity now reinforces the quality of the provision of training and support in professional practice. 


North West Branches:  Our network of branches across the region provide a comprehensive range of events open to members and the public, and an impressive range of international speakers and home grown talent continue to inspire and inform.  Find out more about RIBA North West branches.


Communication: Our regional magazine, A, exists to inform, amuse, educate and inspire our members, but at the same time encourage closer working relationships and provide a forum for discussion on hot issues affecting the built environment.  If you would like to receive a complimentary copy please email riba.northwest@inst.riba.org


Places Matter! is an organisation devoted to generating a strong sense of place in living, working and learning environments throughout the Northwest. Why? Because great places give people the feel good factor, drive economic activity and make the Northwest a better place.
We’re passionate about towns, cities, parks, streets, squares, and any building large or small. We can help clients and developers commission better design and make better decisions through our Places Matter! programme.
We’re members of the Architecture Centre Network and work with CABE and English Heritage. We also work alongside RIBA North West so you could say we’ve got friends in all the right places.
