The increasing complexity of the real estate planning, design, and development process has created a parallel need for independent client advocacy.  If you’re embarking on a large or complex project, a Client Adviser will provide much needed independent advice and guidance throughout, working integrally with members of your project team. In seeking to provide our clients with the most advanced and comprehensive support across all stages of the real estate life cycle, WOWA WEST sought out the best resources available.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) established the RIBA Client Adviser accreditation program in 2005 in recognition of this need. As one of the most reputable international professional governing bodies, RIBA is at the forefront of formalizing this emerging field as an accredited professional practice, providing clients with a framework and resources for independent advice during the entire real estate lifecycle - with particular emphasis on providing strategic advice at the earliest stages to bring certainty and control to the whole enterprise, and safeguard your investment. Our founding principal, Wolfgang Wagener, has been a practicing member of the RIBA since 1996. His unique portfolio of over 25 years of international architectural experience has qualified him to successfully complete the rigorous RIBA Client Adviser accreditation process.
