1. Invitation to participate

Dear architect,
ArchiTeam is delighted to invite you to participate in the first ArchiTeam and RAsP (Research for Architects in Small Practice) Data Collection Survey. The survey has been prepared by ArchiTeam in conjunction with the Melbourne School of Design at the University of Melbourne. It aims to answer the following question:
Do architect designed new houses/renovations improve capital gains in the Melbourne residential property market?
The RAsP Data Collection Survey asks you to select one residential project from your architectural practice and answer the questions to the best of your ability. Ideally the new house or house renovation that you select has been sold since the project was completed, but unsold properties also provide useful data. The next page will provide information to help you identify which project to use.
You are welcome to contribute more than one project to RAsP, however each project requires its own survey submission.
All information will remain confidential. No names, addresses or other specific information will be published. As some questions are complex and may require further clarification, we request that you provide contact details to allow the research team to contact you.
This data will be combined with data from other sources, and analysed by the research team. Conclusions from the research will be made available to all contributors when the work is complete. This is the first step in gathering evidence to support small practice architects and the architecture you produce.
The survey has up to 46 questions, and will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. You can save the survey and come back to it later. The survey will remain open until Friday 30 August.
We are aware some of these questions may be difficult to answer. Please give your best approximation. If you wish to add additional notes, there is space provided for this. Further information about RAsP and the context of the survey is available on the ArchiTeam website, which you can access here.
We thank you for your time and interest, and look forward to sharing the results with you soon.
The RAsP research team.
