Formed in 1925, as the Incorporated Association of Architects and Surveyors, the Association of Building Engineers (ABE) is a leading body for professionals specialising in the design, construction, evaluation and maintenance of building construction.
Its members practise across the United Kingdom, mainland Europe and around the World, and work in both the private and public sectors. The ABE provides the prime qualification of Building Engineer, a title that exactly reflects the professional expertise of members.
The Association of Building Engineers was founded with the principal objectives to:
- promote and advance the knowledge, study and practice of each and all of the arts and sciences concerned with building technology, planning, design, construction, maintenance and repair of the built environment and the creation and maintenance of a high standard of professional qualification, conduct and practice.
- encourage and facilitate co-operation between the construction professions.
