  • Comment on: Third of biggest housebuilders don't employ own architects

    andy ramus's comment 27-Jan-2015 10:59 am

    A developer's job is to maximise their profit. A planner's job is to control the quality of the buildings that are allowed to be built in this country. If planners insisted on good quality, relevant and contextual solutions to house design then developers would have no option other than to employ designers who new what they were doing.

  • Comment on: Hodder: overtime problems are 'legacy of fee cutting'

    Totally agree with John on this one its up to us as architects and business owners to stop messing around and start running our businesses properly and to start charging fees that allow us to pay our staff and ourselves what we are worth. As RIBA Hampshire Chairman I have organised as series of seminars that aim to educate us all as to how to be better in business and charge properly. RIBA president elect, Jane Duncan is fully backing the scheme and with her help we aim to roll this program out nation wide in the new year.

  • Comment on: Architects welcome return of Stonehenge tunnel plans

    Totally agree with you there John. Having spent in the region of 30 hours sat in traffic jams this summer going to and from the west country I believe something urgently need to be done. What is the cost of all the time wasted every single day of the summer with queues and queues of people sat doing nothing for hours. Its worked for Hindhead.,. Andy Ramus AR Design Studio

  • Comment on: Michael Ingall: 'We always chose architects through competition'

    There is no mention of why architectural competitions are a good idea. I would be interested to hear his thoughts. Andy Ramus AR Design Studio.
