Architect or Architectural Designer Differences. Is there a difference? Yes.  The title Architect is a protected Title which may only be used by those qualified to do so.  The Architect Act expresses this qualification as a statutory requirement to prevent those who chose not a train for the necessary 7 years as an architect to use the title 'Architect'.  It's for this reason we see others who may not be a fully qualified Architect using a minor variation of the word.  Variations such as "Architectural Designer in Newcastle" or "Architectural Draftsman" are commonly seen.  Its important to distinguish the difference between 'Architect' and 'Architectural' and identify that these four additional letters are the difference between using a trustworthy competent professional and someone who has not gone through the same stringent examination.

The second difference is that an 'Architect' has a duty to remain competent throughout his/her working career.  To do so an Architect in Newcastle for example must demonstrate their maintained standards.  The first thing to check for is their registration with the ARB.  This is the Architects registration board and lists all those who have met the standards.
