What is a Chartered Architectural Technologist?

Whether you need a design or plans for your project, or a qualified professional to guide you, a Chartered Architectural Technologist, MCIAT, can manage all stages from the earliest designs through to final certification, including submissions for Planning and Building Regulations approvals or equivalent*, regardless of its size or value. However there is no guarantee that it will be approved when submitted.

A Chartered Architectural Technologist specialises in the technology of architecture focusing on the design of buildings for use and performance. As problem solvers, they will make the design work for you, ensuring that you achieve the maximum use of space.

To give added confidence, they are qualified by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) the lead qualifying body for Architectural Technology, which sets the standards for professional conduct for those practising or studying in the discipline. Only Chartered Members of CIAT are permitted to use the designation MCIAT and the protected descriptor Chartered Architectural Technologist. Remember to check they are Chartered as there are those who may describe themselves as an ArchitecturalTechnologist and are not qualified — it is important to check. This can be done online at www.ciat.org.uk

Chartered Architectural Technologists provide the link between your vision, its creation and its construction and offer many services to support projects of all sizes, some of which you may not have even thought about. From preparation, design development, approvals right through to the construction.

You can assemble a shortlist of Chartered Architectural Technologists from the online Directory of Practices, found on our website.

By making use of the services of a Chartered Architectural Technologist, it meant I got the building I wanted, the one I dreamt of really, and it saved me a lot of money in the long run, because no mistakes were made.
