The Architect in Practice was first published in 1952. Originally written by a quantity surveyor and an architect it has remained, through its nine editions, a leading textbook used in the education of architects world-wide. While the format of the book has developed, the message and philosophy remains the same as the original: to provide the student of architecture and the young practitioner with a readable guide to the profession, outlining an architect's duties to client and contractor, the key aspects of running a building contract, and the essentials of management, finance and drawing office procedure. The tenth edition follows in that tradition. The authors, still an architect and a quantity surveyor, have brought the text fully up to date. Major revisions in this edition include: * Revised sections on Planning and the Building Regulations * Changes to the education of architects in the UK have been detailed * Discussion of the new ARB Architects Code: Standards of Professional Conduct and Practice which came into force in January 2010 * The commentary on the RIBA Standard Form for the Appointment of an Architect 1999 (SFA/99) has been updated * The latest RIBA Standard Agreement 2010 (S-10-A) is now discussed * All references to JCT contracts have been updated to refer to the latest revisions of the 2005 suite of contracts * Now also includes reference to education, registration and CPD requirements of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland The tenth edition of The Architect in Practice will continue to provide the guidance and advice all students and practising architects need in the course of their studies and in their profession.

Review quote

"This update of a leading textbook/reference in the field first published in 1952 continues the tradition of an architect and quantity surveyor jointly addressing the architect's profession mainly from the angle of the private practitioner. Chappell and Willis cover the basics of the profession in the UK, running a project from the site appraisal stage to post-construction completion, sources of trade information, finding employment, and marketing practices. The text includes the latest UK building regulations, standards of professional conduct and practice, relevant laws, and forms of contracts; project management flowcharts; and a table of legal cases. Despite the British accent, the book is applicable to the profession globally." ( Book News Inc, November 2010)
