'Face up to an Egan future' UK architects are warned

  • Comment

Architects must become more involved in the Rethinking Construction process, a conference on the future role of architecture has heard.

Robin Nicholson, a CABE commissioner and leading advocate of the Egan agenda, told a conference at the Building Centre on Monday that very few architects are enthusiastic about adopting the new working arrangements.

And he called on architects to become involved in partnering - working in collaboration with other construction industry professionals rather than taking a combative attitude. He said. 'Many hark back to a golden age when architects used to be the project leader on most schemes. This time is well passed.'

He added that architects are being left behind by the rest of the industry: 'There is a natural resistance to change.'
