GuildMark

Join highly successful member companies in becoming part of one of the most significant and innovative developments in the architectural ironmongery industry. It is a joint initiative with the RIBA and is the first of its kind ever to receive endorsement, exemplifying the GAI's commitment to quality, education and professional excellence it enables architects to be guaranteed the highest of standards in modern specification.

All partners in the modern building and construction industries must seek to minimise and control their technical and commercial risk and maximise their professional capabilities. It is therefore vital that specifiers can achieve clarity and objectivity in selecting suitable technical partners. The GuildMark scheme has been conceived with just this simplicity of purpose at its heart, giving architects the peace of mind of knowing that the highest professional standards which they apply to their work can be matched by their specification partners.

GuildMark offers architects and specifiers an assurance of quality and professionalism. The scheme has been developed in close collaboration with the RIBA to mirror its own professional requirements. To become a member of the GuildMark scheme companies must:

- be a member of the GAI

- have at least one fully qualified RegAI on its payroll

- demonstrate appropriate QA systems

- hold full professional indemnity insurance

- fully comply with a special GuildMark Code of Practice

These key criteria aim to upgrade and emphasise the AI’s accreditation for personal technical expertise, consolidating the important position of RegAI's within the architectural ironmongery business. As well as being fully qualified GAI Diploma holders, RegAI's carry out a full programme of certified CPD training, ensuring that their knowledge is absolutely up-to-date. This knowledge and current expertise is central to the GuildMark scheme, establishing a standard of excellence within the industry.
