The RIAI Architects’ Advice Centre at the Autumn Ideal Home Show was extremely busy this year with close to 420 public consultations conducted by RIAI Architects and Practices.
Participating architects were kept busy consulting on a wide range of issues such as extending, energy upgrading, attic conversions, conservation queries, and future proofing. Most visitors to the Advice Centre arrived well prepared with sale-agreed brochures, plans for extensions and sites for new build houses. The organisers of the show reported that over 31,800 visitors attended the Show, a significant increase on last year’s Autumn Show.
The RIAI Advice Clinic will be back at the Spring Ideal Home Show (11-13 April 2014) and at the National Ploughing Championships (23-25 September 2014).
