ARB ballot closes as Cullinan jumps on reform bandwagon

  • Comment
The ballot boxes for the most contentious board elections in ARB's short history have closed.

It will now be only a matter of days before the results will be made public and those involved in the hard-fought campaign will be told if they have won a seat on the board.

These will be nervous times for the ARB Reform Group, which has stirred up controversy by demanding wholesale changes to the regulator's work.

The group, which yesterday announced that it has won the support of Edward Cullinan, has campaigned to win all the six seats on the board reserved for practicing architects.

It has garnered support from most of the major players in UK architecture, including Norman Foster, Richard Rogers and Nicholas Grimshaw.

The result of the ARB election will appear on www.ajplus.co.ukfirst.

* Meanwhile the ARB revealed details yesterday of a successful prosecution of Stratford-based company Coomsco and a Ms Wickramasinghe, an associate partner of the firm.

Both were found guilty of breaching Section 20 of the Architects Act by illegally using the title 'architect' and were fined of £3,000 and £1,500 respectively.
