A letter from Peter Arnold (AJ 30.08.07) inaccurately stated that Maurice McCarthy was not an architect. In fact, although he is not a registered architect, not having practised since 1991, Mr McCarthy holds a Diploma in Architecture and is a member of the RIBA.

More critically, the letter also stated that Mr McCarthy was holding himself out to be an architect in business or practice, by virtue of being on the RIBA’s membership database, implying a contravention of the Architects Act 1997. Mr McCarthy strongly disagrees with Mr Arnold’s opinion on this issue.

Mr McCarthy’s project management company Quasar Management does not hold him out to be an architect and he does not hold himself out to be an architect in business or in practice in breach of the Act.

We are happy to clarify the letter in this way and we apologise to Mr McCarthy for any misunderstanding or embarrassment caused.
