Our Head of Technical Design, Daniel Clift has received accreditation from the RIBA to undertake the Building Regulations Principal Designer role for HRBs (higher risk buildings). He joins only 13 other architects in the UK currently on the RIBA’s Principal Designer Register, of whom only 9 are certified to undertake this role for HRBs.
