RIBAJ Annual advertiser briefing 2022

Join us on 16 March at 2pm to hear from architects about how they specify, what information they require and what catches their eye during the specification process


How do architects specify? What information do architects require? When do architects look at products?

The 2022 RIBAJ advertiser briefing features Brian McGinlay, director McGinlay Bell and Natalia Maximova, associate partner, Sheppard Robson, presenting case studies and discussing their specification process.

Plus, Adrian Malleson, head of economic research and analysis at RIBA, presents an overview of the UK economy, taking a dive into the construction industry – how the various sectors are performing and what architects are working on.

Watch the video now for insights on the architecture industry and the specification process for architects.
