RIBA to launch Register of Conservation Architects

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced plans to establish a Register of Conservation Architects. The register will enable those looking to commission work on heritage buildings find architects with the specific skills and experience they require, encompassing all aspects of historic building conservation, repair and maintenance.

Recognising the distinct nature of conservation work, and moving away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach, the Register will operate upon three levels of membership, which also provide an incremental process of accreditation for those who are in the early phases of establishing their careers in building conversation.

Membership of the Register is open to any ARB registered architect, whether directly in charge of conservation projects or working in a policy capacity, who meets international standards of conservation, and who can demonstrate the appropriate level of competence in the fourteen specialist skill areas detailed in the ICOMOS Training and Education Guidelines.

Ruth Reed, President of the RIBA said: “The RIBA is fully committed to the conservation of our historic built environment. In setting up this Register, the Institute intends to strengthen the profession’s credibility and standing within conservation; establishing an accessible and progressive system to benefit both architects and those commissioning work on heritage buildings is of significant importance.”
