Architect struck off for declaring unfinished flats complete

The Architects Registration Board

Stuart Duffy signed off homes with exposed steelwork, no plumbing and no fire protection, disciplinary hearing is told

An architect has been struck off for signing off properties as practically complete when they were still unfit for human habitation and did not have electricity, plumbing or fire-protection.

Stuart Duffy, of Liverpool-based KDP Architects, was erased from the Register of Architects following invetigations into his behaviour in relation to residential developments in Liverpool and Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire in 2013 and 2017.

The Architects Registration Board said it had appointed an expert architect to probe Duffy’s conduct after complaints about properties he signed off were made by numerous investors.
