ARB deals out triple-whammy of convictions

The Architects Registration Board (ARB) has imposed the strong arm of the law on three architects in the last two weeks.

Neil Ramsay, of Ramsay Architects, was found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and fined £1,000 for failing to pay his Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) and for not responding to correspondence from the ARB.

Kristan Livingston, who works for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, was also found guilty of not carrying PII as well as failing to respond to correspondence, and was convicted of unacceptable professional conduct. Livingston was given a reprimand.

The two convictions follow the 12-month suspension of Ingrid Morris last week. She was suspended from the register for failing to carry PII, as well as being convicted of a criminal offence.

Morris was convicted at Horseferry Road Magistrates' Court in February 2006 for breaching sections seven and nine of the Planning Act 1990. The ARB found her guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.
