Chartered Architect or Chartered Architectural Technologist?

In the United Kingdom, Chartered Architectural Technologists enjoy the same statute as Architects. They deliver similar services  ...(source Wikipedia). An Architect will often describe their profession as the 'art' of building.  A Chartered Architectural Technologist will often be described a specialist in the 'technology' of building.  Both professions are complimentary and often work alongside each other in larger practices and on large construction projects to compliment their skill sets. Both professions can provide the full design services individually or in partnership and oversee the delivery of a building project. Architects are registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and are often a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, (RIBA).  Chartered Architectural Technologists like Paul Day BSc (Hons) MCIAT of PD Architecture are registered with, and members of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, (CIAT). Both professions are governed by their respective organisations codes of conduct.   Each profession may approach the delivery of a project from their own respective backgrounds, with an art or technology bias, and each will have an experience of their own previously delivered projects.  As a client, you should always investigate your chosen architectural professionals background and the previous projects they have completed, also check their references before satisfying yourself you have the best architectural consultant available.  The best architectural professionals will have a full understanding of both the aesthetic and technical aspects of a building project and will be able to demonstrate they can deliver a well designed and technically proficient building that works within the project brief and budgetary constraints, often displayed through a fully comprehensive portfolio
