Ronald Anthony Giddings

Alameda—Effective January 20, 2006, Ronald Anthony Giddings’ architect license number C-18887 was revoked. The action was the result of a Default Decision, which was adopted by the Board.

An Accusation was filed against Giddings for alleged violations of Business and Professions Code (BPC) sections 5583 (Fraud in Practice of Architecture) and 5584 (Willful Misconduct). The Accusation alleged that Giddings entered into a contract to provide architectural services for a residential addition and remodel. The subject received a retainer in the amount of $500 and two original drawings of the floor plan for the property. The subject failed to provide any architectural services on the project and failed to return the $500 retainer and original drawings. In another project, the subject entered into a contract to provide architectural services and secure permits related to a residential addition and remodel. The subject failed to provide the necessary plans for the project to enable the City of Alameda to issue permits to complete the project. The clients were required to hire another architect to complete the architectural plans at a cost of $4,289.55.
