More About Professional Practice :

Professional bodies may set standards of ethics, performance, competence, insurance, training and so on that must be met to remain within the profession. These are typically set out in a code of conduct.

Some professional designations are protected by law. For example, the term ‘architect’ is protected by the Architects Act 1997 which established the Architects Registration Board(ARB). Only qualified individuals that are registered with the ARB can offer their services asarchitects. However, rather peculiarly, the public tend to recognise the designation RIBA, denoting an architect who is also a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. This is not a legal requirement.

Professions will have specific practices and standards that they value, but in construction there are some general principles common to most professionals:

  • Act with integrity.
  • Adopt an ethical approach.
  • Provide a high standard of service.
  • Only undertake work for which there is appropriate competence.
  • Have appropriate insurance.
  • Ensure that terms of appointment are clear.
  • Act in a way that promotes trust in the profession.
  • Do not bring the profession into disrepute.
  • Do not discriminate against parties on any grounds.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to continuing professional development.
  • Offer a dispute resolution service.

Contracts may include terms requiring that the contracted party exercise ‘reasonable skill and care’, and in interpreting this, the courts may take into account the professional standard that might be expected. That is, a party advertising services as a professional architect would be expected to demonstrate the level of skill and care of a competent architect.

An architect offering services in a specialist field might be expected to demonstrate a higher level of skill and care, of a competent specialist. The more skilled a person, the more the care that can be expected of them. For more information see: Reasonable skill and care.
