RIBA and BIAT align their bodies

  • Comment

The RIBA and the British Institute of Architectural Technologists (BIAT) have agreed to collaborate more closely.

The bodies have today signed an agreement that will aid closer coordination on issues of shared interest, including provision of services to members, continued professional development, professional education and industry liaison and representation.

RIBA president George Ferguson said: 'The reality is that architects and architectural technologists are working shoulder to shoulder, screen by screen, and there has been an artificial separation between our two interdependent disciplines.

'We both have much to learn from each other, and this agreement represents an important move in the right direction.'

BIAT president Paul Burton said: 'I am delighted that the discussion initiated during my predecessor's term as president has come to fruition.

'We welcome this declaration as confirmation of the way our members and architects operate in practice, ' he added.
