RIBA Ask an Architect

RIBA Ask an Architect

Posted on behalf of Bath Preservation Trust

Have you an architectural project you’d like to discuss with an impartial expert? 
Ask an Architect is an excellent design advice service offered by the Royal Institute of British Architects in partnership with Bath Preservation Trust to support design projects in the city of Bath.

Visitors are invited to book a 45 minute slot (or consecutive slots for a longer chat) to discuss plans, dreams and schemes for projects large or small. It is an ideal opportunity to meet with a qualified architect from RIBA Chartered Practice for an informal chat to discuss your plans for building projects.

Undertaking a building project, whatever the scale, can be a daunting experience. By using an architect from a RIBA Chartered Practice you know you are employing someone who has undertaken seven years of training and works to the highest standards in design, health and safety and quality assurance — no other building professional is trained in design and construction to such a level of expertise.

A chartered architect can: 
• Help you achieve your aspirations and vision
• Add value to your project through good design and sound construction
• Bring creativity to your project whilst keeping it on track
• Guide you through the design and construction process
• Give you peace of mind 

All appointments will be held with an architect from RIBA Chartered Practice who adheres to the RIBA Professional Code of Conduct.

Sessions are by appointment only, please pre-book your timeslot. First come first served on timeslots and you are welcome to book more than one 45 minute slot if you would like to have a longer time with the architect (just book two consecutive time slots). 

We kindly suggest a minimum donation of £25 per session (divide this in two if booking two sessions). Bath Preservation Trust is a registered charity (no. 203048) and your donation will help support our conservation work.

Architects in Residence are: 

 Saturday 23 March – Mark Lord, Mark Lord Architects

Saturday 27 April – Craig Morris, Bibo Studio

Saturday 29 June – Billy Butler & Sam Whinnett, Askew Cavanna Architects

Bath Preservation Trust is pleased to be working with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in 2018 to offer monthly Saturday advice surgeries with a local architect from Chartered Practice. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and its members. It provides the standards, training, support and recognition that put members in the UK and overseas, at the forefront of their profession
