HG Wells Conference Centre, Woking
Speakers on behalf of the Architects Registration Board will present advice on how to prevent common problems that lead to complaints. The seminar will cover the Architects Code of Conduct and Practice; how to prevent complaints before they arise; dealing with professional indemnity insurance, and include interactive case studies to examine where architects have gone wrong in the past and how their mistakes can be avoided.
Consistently over the last few years, complaints about architects have been based on a failure to meet the requirements of three or four Standards within the Code of Conduct and Practice.
Many of these failings have serious consequences for both architect and client, but they could have been easily avoided by having a greater understanding of what is expected under the Code and what good practice consists of in these situations.
By looking at some of the cases previously considered by the Professional Conduct Committee, it will be possible to understand how the Code is applied, and how the standards relate to everyday practice. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about professional practice.
