Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists - CIAT

The National Self Build & Renovation Centre

CIAT is a dynamic, forward-thinking and inclusive global membership qualifying body for Architectural Technology. Architectural Technology is a creative and innovative design discipline which integrates architecture, science, technology and engineering. Chartered Architectural Technologists are qualified and competent in their field of practice, which includes offering full design services, or managing building projects from design/project conception to final handover or management of the project.

Architectural Technology forms the link between concept, innovation and realisation of a building or structure. At its heart are the technology, buildability, functionality and performance of the design, taking into consideration materials, innovative processes, production techniques and sustainability; all in compliance with regulatory, statutory and legal requirements.

Architectural Technology influences the technological, environmental, social, economic, cultural and political issues in both the built and natural environment.

It ensures a building or structure is fit for purpose and designed with inclusivity in mind so that the needs of the end users are met. The design solutions will incorporate and address health and safety, welfare and ethical issues as well as the social well-being of those using the building or space.

Chartered Architectural Technologists can lead the technological and technical design of projects, forming the link between concept, innovation and realisation. They are qualified to identify, investigate, research and evaluate the needs, functions and aspirations of society within the built environment. They can ensure that projects are designed and constructed to be economical, environmentally sustainable and robust to perform efficiently and effectively and as intended within their planned life.

CIAT has a Directory of CIAT Chartered Practices.
