Professor Peter Dale

Peter Dale graduated in Architecture from Durham University and in Town and Country Planning from Kingston Polytechnic. He has a Masters in Architecture from Leeds Metropolitan University.

After many years in local government he retired early from the post of County Architect to Humberside, having held the position for ten years from the age of forty-two. Invited to teach in the Leeds Metropolitan University and then by our own University, Peter Dale has augmented the course in Architectural Engineering within the School of Civil Engineering during a difficult period of staff illness and departures. The course remains healthy and has attracted significant plaudits from the external examiners: in 2000-02, for the first time, ten of its graduates achieved ARB/RIBA Part 1 (the first part of the architecture licensing examination).

Of special interest to the School are Peter Dale's related interests; chairing a research quango for the DoE; Vice-Presidency of the Royal Institute of British Architects; Vice-Chairman of the Architects' Registration Council of the UK (now the Architects' Registration Board); chairing and reviewing the National Validation Procedures (which he still does); and chairing OETechnicity within the EU harmonisation process.

There are many other accolades, all within the realms of Architecture and Construction: over thirty awards; editing over fifteen pamphlets; adviser to many national groups, such as Construction Research within DETR; validation of schools of Architecture in South Africa, South America and China. All of these indicate a devotion to Architecture and a passion to assist others by helping and advising students to be architects and engineers, and by meeting the profession's new roles in society. It is a particular pleasure that Peter Dale will stay with the School, in a part-time advisory role, to advise joint validation for our 4th year students, under the direction of the new Hoffman Wood Chair of Architectural Engineering, a post he dragged out of the cupboard to assist the School's long-term aims.
