Welcome to the ACA directory of practices. If you would like to view the details of a practice that you know, you can directly search the directory by entering the practice name. If you are looking for a possible practice to work with, in the first instance you can search the directory using keywords to generate a shortlist of practices likely to offer the services you require. While most architects regard themselves as generalists and it is hard to devise a simple guide to the distinguishing characteristics of a practice, the shortlists generated by keywords should be a useful starting point. Reference to the ‘working with an architect’ pages of the ACA website may help with the process of choosing as well. The ACA recommends that you make contact with a number of practices before making a final choice.
The keywords fall into four sections; choose up to 3 keywords from the first three sections and a preferred region or “all” within the location section.
You can search from:
Services – A drop down menu with 14 terms
Sectors – A drop down menu with 17 terms
Ethos – A drop down menu with 18 items
Region – A drop down menu with 13 items.
The search results are randomly generated and not alphabetical. If you do not have any success with a multiple choice search, we recommend you search on less terms or perhaps just region.
