Architect in the Hoose scheme to run for whole of 2016

Architect in the Hoose collageThe Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has once again launched Architect in the Hoose to help homeowners and raise money for the Architects Benevolent Society (ABS).

The scheme involves architects offering free, hour-long consultations to the public, in return for a small donation of £30 for the ABS. To mark the year long, Scotland wide Festival of Architecture, the Scottish Government designated year of Architecture, Design and Innovation, and to celebrate the RIAS’ Centenary year, the scheme will run throughout 2016.

The ABS cares for architects, assistants, technologists and landscape architects and their dependants providing practical and financial help to people of all ages who have experienced redundancy, illness, accident or bereavement. Anyone who is considering making changes to their property should sign-up.
