Project Planning & Design

Project Planning & Design focuses on the schematic design phase of a project. This area includes tasks related to laying out building designs, reviewing building codes and regulations, coordinating schematics with consultants, and communicating design concepts with your client. For more information about all experience areas, read the AXP Guidelines.

Retiring the Rolling Clock Policy

NCARB is retiring the rolling clock policy on April 30, 2023. Going forward, the validity of passed exam divisions will be based on the version of the exam they were taken under (ARE 4.0, ARE 5.0, etc.)

U.S. and U.K. Sign a New MRA

NCARB and the U.K.’s Architects Registration Board (ARB) signed a new Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA). The new agreement increases international practice opportunities for U.S. and U.K. architects.
