RSUA Design Quality Panel Established

23 April 2018

RSUA has appointed 15 architects to its newly established peer-approved Design Quality Panel.

The panel will be available to assist clients and others with a range of matters including:

  • assessing design quality at tender
  • judging design competitions
  • design input at project inception and the development of briefs
  • undertaking design reviews
  • awareness training in design quality

The panel of 15 was elected following an open process which saw over 120 architects proposed by their peers for inclusion on the panel. This led to 37 nominations of which 15 received the overwhelming support of the RSUA Council.

The architects on the RSUA Design Panel are:

 

Fearghal Murray

 

Fiona Patterson

 

Peter Monaghan

 

Aidan McGrath

 

Nicola Waddington

 

Mark Reid

 

Kari Simpson

 

Alistair Beckett

 

Trevor Leaker

 

Peter Niblock

 

Mervyn Black

 

Alan Jones

 

John D FitzGerald

A short profile of each architect on the panel will be made available to allow clients to make an informed decision on who is right for them in each circumstance. The profile will set out the architect’s experience, expertise and perspective on design.

The operation of the panel will be reviewed in 2019 and there will be future opportunities for architects to join the panel.
