Professional Associations

The Royal Institute of British Architects is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture. It serves its members and society in order to deliver better buildings and places, stronger communities and a sustainable environment.

The ARB is the UK’s statutory regulator of architects. They keep a public register of UK architects. Every architect on their register has met the standards that they set for education, training and practice.

The Association for Project Management is the principal UK Institute for professional project managers. APM’s mission statement is ‘To provide leadership to the movement of committed organisations and individuals who share our passion for improving project outcomes’.
Qualified Practitioner members are entitled to use the title MAPM.

Founded in 1877 by William Morris, today the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is the largest, oldest and most technically expert national pressure group fighting to save old buildings from decay, demolition and damage.
