ACA council member sought £147k for £100k project that never saw light of day
A 77-year-old architect has been struck off the professional register for what the Architects Registration Board’s professional conduct committee said was a “truly appalling” payment demand that exceeded the original project budget even though the scheme did not progress.
Islington-based Stephen Yakeley was handed an erasure order by the PCC earlier this month in the final act of a wrangle that began in April 2016 when he was commissioned to work up proposals for the refurbishment of a central London flat to an indicative project budget of £100,000.
The PCC said Yakeley had returned with proposals for the 72sq m one-bedroom property that were costed at between £343,000 and £500,000. It noted that the home had been bought for £1.35m.
