Emma Dent Coad: ‘Architects need to be accountable for their buildings’


Emma Dent Coad should be roundly congratulated. Not only has she been doggedly representing her constituency so well, ever since Grenfell, but she is also highly knowledgeable about architecture. In this article she raises & confronts many central professional concerns. The question of industry accountability is one such issues & if architects don’t rise to this challenge the profession will be vanquished. Addressing poor & complex public procurement, inappropriate D&B, and the lack of a ‘Golden Thread’ of accountability is rightly a key to ensure social value is deliverable. While RIBA should be commended for rising to many of the specific issues arising from Grenfell, far more clearly needs to be done to trategically to address the central framework.
