Description

Includes the very latest on keeping out of trouble with ARB and RIBA policy.

Professional Indemnity Insurers and the ARB will tell you that architects make the same errors time and time again. The potential for getting into trouble with clients, fees, building contracts and with the law is huge. Keeping out of Trouble reveals those areas where things consistently go wrong. This fully updated new edition reflects the pitfalls of the current construction climate, with up-to-date advice including fees, negligence and breach of contract claims, and dealing with ‘clients from hell’.

About the Author

Owen Luder

Owen Luder CBE PPRIBA FRSA MAE was uniquely twice elected RIBA President (1981–83 and 1995–97) and Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Architects Registration Board (1997–2003) and was a nationally elected member of the RIBA Council almost continuously from 1967 to 1998.

He qualified in 1954 and started his own ‘one-man’ office in the late 1950s, which grew into a major architectural practice with offices in Wales, Harrogate and Newcastle in the UK and associated offices in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. He was responsible for the design and construction of many large commercial, industrial, retail, leisure and housing projects, urban and environmental planning and regeneration schemes in the UK and abroad.

In 1976 his practice, the Owen Luder Partnership, converted to company status. In 1987 he withdrew to revert to being a one-man band, working as an independent architect, urban designer and marketing and construction consultant. He is a member of the Academy of Experts and a qualified mediator.

From 1984 to 1991 he organised, chaired and was a speaker for the RIBA Services Practice seminars, and from then until 2003 organised the Building Design practice update seminars. He still lectures to Part 3 students and young architects on ‘Keeping Out of Trouble’.

He was editor and presenter for the Architectural Practice videos and a regular columnist for many years with Building and Building Design magazines. He was awarded the publishers’ Business Columnist of the Year award in 1987

Date Reviewed: July 2013

A useful book that helps the architect steer clear of some of the major pitfalls of practice. Clearly laid out and well written.
