Paul Fisher BSc (Hons) MCIAT

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) and Plan-It Design is a CIAT Chartered Practice. All Chartered Members offering services to the public must maintain adequate Professional Indemnity Insurance and abide by the Institute’s Code of Conduct. Chartered Members also have to keep up to date with continuing professional development which is monitored by the Institute.

I have an honours degree in Building Surveying and a Higher National Diploma in Building Studies, attained at Southbank University, London in 1993. I have worked for surveying companies in London and the south of England and also for two Local Authorities. I currently serve regularly on the CIAT Member Panel Board, assessing submissions for candidates looking to gain Chartered Membership of the Institute.

The areas which I cover

Based in New Milton on the south coast, much of my work falls under the jurisdiction of New Forest District Council and the New Forest National Park Authority. I also cover the areas for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Councils.
