Jersey architect guilty of triple code breach

A Jersey-based architect has been found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and given a £2,500 penalty order

Teresa Jane Blakeley, formerly known as Jane Faulkner, of Jane Faulkner Architect in St Brelade, was found guilty of three breaches of the Architects Registration Board’s code of conduct by the board’s professional conduct committee.

Blakeley did not give her clients adequate written terms of engagement, did not stick to agreed costs and failed to inform her client about factors which might affect the price of the project.

Following hearings on July 19-21 and October 14 last year, the chairman of the committee said: ‘When considering the entirety of the allegations made… by the board, we consider the respondent’s conduct of this project was in clear breach of a significant number of requirements of the code.

‘We have no hesitation in saying that these breaches constitute unacceptable professional conduct by the respondent.’

The committee decided on a sanction of a £2,500 penalty order after considering a written submission from the architect in mitigation.
