‘Architects don’t approve drawings’: Studio E associate denies signing off cladding


Sounds like Crawford has played a blinder under a difficult but niave cross examination. He describes industry standard practice in an accurate and reasonable way. Give the man his Part 3, if he hasn’t already got it. The alternative is that architecture practices have now assumed the role of building control, pro bono. Do these bloody lawyers know anything about the building industry?! Part 3 architectural professional practice training is akin to their pupillage system. It’s a chicken and egg situation in which no-one would professionally qualify if they were never given any responsibility. A paralegal is never going to progress if they are just assigned to photocopy the ‘bundle’!
