                                     The RIBA is the first and most famous
                                     architectural institute in the world. Founded in
                                     1834, its mission is:

                                     benefit to society and promoting excellence in
                                     the profession.

                                     clients and the construction industry.

                                          Why use an Architect?

                                          Whether you intend to construct a new
                                          building, expand your current facility, or adapt
                                          an existing structure to a new use, it makes
                                          sense to consult a professional who shares
                                          your concerns.

                                          Are you a commercial client
                                          commissioning architecture?
                                          Architects are trained to take your brief and
                                          can see the big picture – they look beyond
                                          your immediate requirements to design flexible
                                          buildings that will adapt with the changing
                                          needs of your business.

                                          Architects solve problems creatively – when
                                          architects are involved at the earliest planning
                                          stage, they gain more opportunities to
                                          understand your business, develop creative
                                          solutions, and propose ways to reduce costs.

                                          Architects can save you money by maximising
                                          your investment. A well-designed building can
                                          reduce your bills now and increase its long-
                                          term value.

                                          Architects can manage your project from site
                                          selection to completion. In many building
                                          projects the role of the architect includes
                                          co-ordinating a team of specialist consultants
                                          such as landscape architects, engineers,
                                          quantity surveyors, interior designers, builders
                                          and subcontractors.

                                          Architects can save you time – by managing
                                          and co-ordinating key project elements,
                                          allowing you to focus on your organisation’s

                                          Architects can help your business – they

                                          exterior – which are pleasing and functional
                                          for the people who work and do business
