Six-month penalty for architect who went to ground as HSE stopped project

An architect who failed to respond to 24 client emails after the Health and Safety Executive stopped work on one of his projects has been found guilty of unprofessional conduct by the Architects Registration Board.

Nicholas Baldry – of Peter Jackson Architects in Kent – has been suspended from the register of architects for six months because of his actions, the Arb said.

The Arb’s Professional Conduct Committee heard that Baldry had been acting as contract administrator for an extension project when excavation work on the job unearthed a previously-unknown pipe that led to the HSE suspending work on site for three days in November 2015.
