  • Comment on: Architects slam Gove's £2bn BSF replacement

    Peter Ullathorne: The Ullathorne Consultancy:
    PFI has come of age. PFI could just offer reasonable value in addition to the various rate discounts. If those who commission public buildings are well advised on value and performance (by RIBA Client Advisers) at briefing, design and in competitive dialogue then the finance, delivery and service packages offered by private sector providers can actually provide long term value. Thinking about schools and the now abbreviated programme of work, surely we need to surround our children with good parenting, gifted teaching and well designed environments to fulfil our responsibilities as adult? Let's not quibble over a few percentage points on the cost of meeting such responsibilities.

  • Comment on: Fee bids drop to 1.8 per cent as ‘suicidal’ undercutting continues

    Peter Ullathorne's comment 16 September, 2010 10:58 pm

    The RIBA needs to show strong leadership on the matter of sustaining architectural fees at commercially viable levels. The anti-cartel legislation designed to protect the consumer/client is failing in that they are not protected from fee bids that do not fund the proper resourcing of their work. Given an unregulated markletplace, the only route for fee levels is downwards. The RIBA needs to engage urgantly with legislators to ensure a viable market and fee levels that are sustainable.
