From 1 January 2021, the UK will have a completely different relationship with the EU. New trade agreements and a new immigration system will change the way the UK architecture sector works. Since the referendum in 2016, we have produced several research reports to show the value of the UK’s architecture sector and provided members and practices with guidance and resources to help navigate the changes. You can see some of this information below.

As we approach the end of the transition period, it’s time to make sure you and your practice are prepared. The UK government has published a checklist, where you can answer a set of questions to get a personalised list of actions.
