Trading successfully across borders can strengthen your practice and help to make it more innovative and resilient to economic fluctuations. The Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) encourages dynamic, enthusiastic practices with the necessary drive to grow internationally.

This new guide aims to assist architects to develop international business opportunities and secure long-term success by adopting a strategic approach to their ventures into new markets. Although produced by the ACE in Europe, this guide could be equally valuable to all architects who wish to internationalise their practices, wherever they are located.

The guide presents a framework for the provision of architectural and related services in the international marketplace. The framework is relevant to all practices, regardless of how much experience they have of working internationally, from those embarking on their first overseas project to experienced practices wishing to improve their business performance.
