Ben Derbyshire: ‘It’s time to challenge poorly managed Design and Build’


re. Chris R. comments -I agree with almost everything you have said -especially Client Services. Client Services should be pushing appropriate fee guidance, and also making sure that all print and broadcast media make sure the Architects of a shiny new project are named in articles. I also hope the RIBA Competitions Dept can expand, especially to move away from these stage-managed stellar-invites only non competitions. I also agree with your choice to resign, the RIBA has seemed desperate to be irrelevant for the past 40 years. We are barely involved in Grenfell Inquiry it appears. I chose to stay inside RIBA in the vain hope of a messiah or at least a very naughty boy might come along and lead us back to somewhere loftier ..... My gripe with your comment is that the new President was not elected with less than 10%. 15.2% of RIBA Architects could be bothered voting, the rest have chosen to have no voice. The RIBA could be changed massively for the good if that 85% demanded it. Of those that could manage to stick a stamp on a form, he won the count. So well done to Pres. Derbyshire and good luck to him. I'm sure it is a basically thankless task.
