PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIALS

As a professional architects practice we are proud of maintaining the highest levels of integrity and operating standards.
To ensure this we are:

+ ARCHITECTS REGISTRATION BOARD (ARB) REGISTERED

Since 1931, in the UK, the title 'architect' has been protected under the 'Architects Registration Act'. This restricts the use of the title to those deemed to have the skills, experience and qualifications required to perform the role. The Architects Registration Board (ARB) regulate the use of the title and maintain the register of architects. All 3bd partners are registered architects and abide by the ARB code of conduct. You can search the register HERE.

+ ROYAL INSTITUTE OF BRITISH ARCHITECTS (RIBA) CHARTERED

Beyond the statutory architects register, 3bd are proud to extend their professional integrity to include the code of conduct monitored by the ROYAL INSTITUTE OF BRITISH ARCHITECT (RIBA). This extends our commitment to include continued professional development, quality management systems, environmental policies and carry professional indemnity insurance. You can view our RIBA practice page HERE. The RIBA advice for working with an architect can be found HERE and HERE.

+ PI INSURED

We carry architects professional indemnity insurance to cover the cost of any damages caused by incorrect advice to clients. We have never needed to make a claim and like to think of it as a safety net only.

+ ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

We are strong believers in improving our environment, not just carbon emissions, but the whole package, including the spaces we inhabit, the use of natural resources and wildlife habitats. Within the role as architects our agenda is not only to make things less bad, but ensure our interventions are distinctly positive.

+ SOFTWARE/IT INFRASTRUCTURE
