Event Information

Call for applications from Architects wishing to act as Assessors for the Technical Assessment process

Download Information Pack

Under the terms of the Building Control Act 2007, “a person who has been performing duties commensurate with those of an architect for a period of 10 or more years in the State”[1] may apply for ‘Technical Assessment’ for the purposes of registration as an architect.

Applications are sought from architects interested in providing services as assessors for the Technical Assessment process. Assessors will, on a consultancy basis paid for by the RIAI, assist the Technical Assessment Board in assessing the eligibility of persons applying under Technical Assessment for registration as architects in the State.  Those selected as assessors will be appointed to a panel from which teams of three will be selected to assess the written submissions of candidates, and interview them, with a view to providing an opinion to the Technical Assessment Board (see sections 21(4) and 21(5) of the Building Control Act 2007). 

The work of the assessors will be carried out at the RIAI offices during working hours. Assessors are required to be capable of committing to being available for a minimum of three months for approximately three days per week during that period. Assessors will need to be VAT registered to receive payments. It is acceptable for an individual working within a practice to provide services through that practice (with the agreement of the employer where appropriate) i.e. maintaining employment within the practice with the practice invoicing the RIAI for the services provided. It is anticipated that the fee paid per assessment will be in the region of €675.

Closing date for applications 12 noon Wednesday, 3 February 2010
