RIBA asks housing clients for views on working with an architect

The Royal Institute of British Architects has launched a new survey to ask housing clients for their views on working with an architect.

The Royal Institute of British Architects has launched a new survey to ask housing clients for their views on working with an architect.

The RIBA’s 2020 Working with Architects survey is in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Homeowners’ Alliance.

The survey asks recent housing clients (homeowners and commercial) about their expectations and experiences. Commercial clients are also asked for their views on future risks to the sector.

Open to anyone who has appointed an architect to design their house or housing project in the last two years, the survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey will help to benchmark client attitudes, give architects valuable market intelligence and help the profession to continually provide the best services to clients.

Alan Jones, RIBA President:

“With the majority of people spending more time at home, we know that the demand for good spatial, functional and sustainable design has increased - RIBA Chartered Architects and Practices are working hard to advise, design and guide clients through the process. The RIBA is committed to supporting our members, and results from this survey will provide valuable insight that will help architects ensure they meet their clients wants and needs.”

The survey closes on 6 December 2020.

This survey follows the 2016 Working with Architects survey, which led to the Building in Quality initiative, including the RIBA Quality Tracker.
