Architecture & Surveying

The faculty works on behalf of members engaged in the design and surveying fields. It looks at evolving work practices and how we can offer support and direction.

Design Management, for example, was born out of this faculty. Here we can use scholarships, workshops and conferences to create a body of research and knowledge which will contribute to the understanding of a new discipline or practice.

The faculty also represents our members’ interests in relation to new legislation. Recently we ensured that CIOB surveying members are recognised in Ireland’s Building Control Act 2007 which makes it mandatory for surveying professionals who wish to use the title of Quantity or Building Surveyor to apply to the Irish Registration Body.

On a day-to-day basis, this group keeps a watching brief on areas where our members can contribute their specialist knowledge and experience, for example on initiatives such as the government’s Green Deal.
