Renewed collaboration commitment between leading built environment Institutes
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) have reinforced their commitment to collaboration and partnership by renewing their Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
This alliance between the Institutes, which has been in place since 1997, maintains and continues with its principal aim of strengthening the links between Construction Management and Architectural Technology.
It recognises the shared roles of the Chartered Institutes to ensure that the science and practise of built environment professionals benefits society. Through the Memorandum, the Institutes are committed to providing joint events across the world, collaborating on consultations where views are shared, and promoting career paths and disciplines in the built environment.
Over the past 20 years, this commitment has also benefited the professionals within membership. The MoU encourages joint networking and personal development events, supporting the continuing learning and upskilling of these professions. The Institutes also actively encourage membership of both organisations by providing a 25% reduction on the standard rates for those aspiring to dual membership.
Chris Blythe OBE, Chief Executive of the CIOB said of the renewal, “By working together, we can help to improve the skills, knowledge and professionalism of our members to ensure that the highest standards are met in the built environment. We look forward to continuing this close relationship with the CIAT to promote the work of our members and the industry throughout the world.”
Francesca Berriman MBE, Chief Executive of CIAT said, “I'm delighted to see the renewal of our Memorandum which embeds and stregthens further the relationship we have built over the last 20 years. Our members work collaboratively in practice across the UK and globally; and this agreement demonstrates our commitment to improving the professional lives of our respective members and communicates our dedication to the promotion, support and recognition of Architectural Technology and Construction Management."
