Back in 2002, a practice I worked for in Dublin 2 had this on its drawing desk. I worked for a Landscape Architect – the brief was to propose a landscape deck at entry level with parking at basement level. Surprised it has taken until now to get a mention.
I am currently in the process of purchasing a new four-bed house in Dublin & have been advised by my solicitor to have a snag list done on the property. I have contacted two architectâ€™s offices out of the golden pages but the prices differ a lot â€“ one was â‚¬200 while the other was â‚¬500.
Could anyone tell me an approx. price I should pay for this service to be carried out?
Any help will be very much appreciated.

I reckon your guess could be right but I reckon they might be in place to be a sort of thorn in the side of the RIAI. As the RIAI want it all there own way in regards to Architecture in Ireland. To be truthful if The Group of Independent Architects in Ireland where more pro-active to architectural technologist in regards to setting up their own practices & seeing architectural technologists as people who have done a four year degree course & not a one year CAD course, & fighting for a part time architecture degree in Ireland, then I would be all on for signing up with them.
All I have found is the following taken from the RIAI web page, http://www.riai.ie/?id=6298, it’s in relation to the RIAI Submission to Competition Authority; Section 6: Registration; Part 2
“Since 1997, and following the recommendations of the Strategic Review Committee, there has been extensive consultation on the proposals under the Building Control Bill with bodies representing architects other than RIAI members, the Forum for the Construction Industry, and Government Departments, relating to the agreement of these proposals by the Forum for the Construction Industry. The proposals for registration set out in a Frame for Registration for the Architectural Profession in Ireland, has been agreed by the Architects and Surveyors Institute, The Group of Independent Architects in Ireland, The Incorporated Association of Architects and Surveyors and the Irish Architects Society”.
So they do exist, but on trying the golden pages there is no mention of them!!
