Architect rapped for business terms failings

The Architects Registration Board

Unacceptable professional conduct finding over client who ‘did not know what kind of project they wanted’

An architect has been formally reprimanded by the Architects Registration Board for failing to enter into written terms of engagement with a client prior to starting work for them – even though they were unclear about what they wanted.

Philip John Mitchell, of Leamington Spa-based practice Mitchell Johnson Marshall, was handed a formal reprimand after being found guilty of two counts of unacceptable professional conduct by the Arb’s professional conduct committee earlier this month.

The complaint against Mitchell followed a dispute over £3,000 in fees for work on a property redevelopment project conducted between November 2016 and February 2017.
