Ask an Architect


In Partnership with RIBA

Ask An Architect

For many years, we have been proud to offer our ‘Ask An Architect’ Surgeries. Produced in partnership with The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) we regularly offer free personal consultations with architects to discuss ideas for designing and building your own home or renovating or reconfiguring your existing home.

You can benefit from a strictly no obligation 25 minute meeting with a RIBA member. Due to their popularity, these sessions must be booked in advance.

Discussion Topics:

  • Designing and building your own self build home
  • Reconfiguring your existing home to maximise space
  • Creating extra storage
  • Introducing energy-saving solutions to save money
  • Adding value to your home

For example, a chartered architect can:

  • Help you achieve your aspirations and vision
  • Add value to your project through good design and sound construction
  • Bring creativity to your project whilst keeping it on track
  • Guide you through the design and construction process
  • Give you peace of mind

All appointments will be held with an architect from RIBA Chartered Practice who adheres to the RIBA Professional Code of Conduct.

By booking an RIBA Ask an Architect appointment you confirm that you are not currently employing or have sought advice from an RIBA Chartered Architect or RIBA Chartered Practice on the project you are intending to discuss.

The advice given at the session is in no way to be used as a second opinion on, or in dispute of, work or plans currently being undertaken by another construction professional. Where work or plans have previously been undertaken or completed by another construction professional, you must be paid up to date and not in dispute.

If this turns out not to be the case on arrival at your appointment, the attending architect will not be able to discuss your project with you. This is in accordance with the RIBA and ARB Codes of Professional Conduct.
