PARKdesigned Leeds and London practice have become a RIBA Chartered Practice. To become a Chartered Practice, architect practices need to comply with strict criteria in an accreditation scheme that gives you, the client, a mark of quality. So by choosing a RIBA Chartered Practice you can expect a certain level of excellence in design and service. The scheme has been developed by RIBA following client and government feedback. It ensures that all accredited members work to a common set of standards and have in place:
- appropriate professional indemnity insurance
- quality management systems
- health and safety policy
- employment policy addressing the principles of the RIBA policy statement on employment
- continuing professional development for all staff.
our practice should be working towards the development of a written environmental management policy and its application to the business operation of the practice by 1 July 2010
