Information for members of the public
Welcome to the section of our website that contains information that you might find helpful as a member of the public. For example, you might want to find an architect in your area, check to see whether someone is registered, or find out what to expect when you use an architect, as well as information on what you should do if you want to complain about an architect’s conduct or competence. You can also find out about what ARB does and how we work.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for either by following the links on the left or in the main menu tabs, try using the search facility or contact us direct.
ARB has prepared the following video to help you through the process of finding an architect in your area and provided guidance on key areas for discussion when you meet your architect.
