Following approval by the Privy Council, The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) has launched CIAT Chartered Practice.
On 1 September 2020, following approval by the Privy Council, the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) launched CIAT Chartered Practice, a protected title which sits alongside the protected title Chartered Architectural Technologist. The designation recognises architectural practices which have Chartered Architectural Technologists as principals, partners, LLP members or directors who have gained registration by compliance with CIAT’s processes.
CIAT Chartered Practices commit to operating with integrity and to high industry standards. They will be identifiable by a CIAT Chartered Practice logo which will feature on websites, stationery and site signboards.
The Institute will support CIAT Chartered Practices in a variety of ways. They will be listed in a Directory of CIAT Chartered Practices, supplied with information sheets and promotional literature. They will also have access to the Institute’s Technology Network which will provide them with a link to members with specialist knowledge and expertise. Further support will be provided on an ongoing basis.
Chief Executive, Francesca Berriman MBE said: “I’m delighted that we can recognise practices in this way in addition to their protected descriptor, Chartered Architectural Technologist. Chartered Architectural Technologists run many outstanding practices and receive incredible feedback for their work. This new status allows them to reaffirm their commitment to quality and communicate this to the public.”
