Institute's directory of practices goes on line

RIBA director general Alex Reid has driven the institute further down the super-highway by putting the entire directory of practices on to the Internet on a 'shoestring budget of £10,000'.

The page, at http: //www.ribafind.org went online a fortnight ago, and is also accessible via a link from the RIBA's main page. It contains information on 17,000 practices, which can be searched by name, area, and expertise.

'This is the first building block of what I hope will be the world's best architectural web site, ' said Reid at a demonstration of the page to last week's council.

At the moment, practices which pay for an entry into the paper-version directory of practices get an automatic inclusion on the web, thanks to the development cost coming from the CAS. In the future it may be possible to click on thumbnail images on screen to get a full-screen version, and an Internet-only product may be offered. Reid said he hoped a demo of an enlarged web site would be possible in three months.
