New RIAI Survey of Architectural Roles in the Public Sector

The RIAI and Red C Research have launched an important new survey on behalf of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and the National Policy on Architecture (NPA), Places for People to get the first comprehensive view of all those working in architectural roles in the public service.

We would ask all Members who work in the public sector to complete this important survey, which seeks information on current public sector architectural roles and capacity requirements. The successful implementation of the National Development Plan, Ireland 2040 depends on architectural resources in the public sector such as in Government Departments, the Office of Public Works (OPW), State Agencies and Local Authorities and the insights from Architects and Architectural Technologists are vital. 

Take survey


All of the answers given will remain completely confidential. Survey responses will not be linked back to any individual or to any specific organisation. RED C will report the survey findings to RIAI and the DHLGH at an aggregate level. This survey should take between 5-10 minutes to complete, depending on your answers.

The RIAI would greatly appreciate all public sector members participating in the survey. Please also circulate this survey to your colleagues in architectural roles including those who are not RIAI members.
