Book Description

This is the second in a must-have series of step-by-step guides to using the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 on your project. Drawing together stages 2 and 3 this book explains the importance of the Concept Design and Developed Design, how to achieve a balance of creativity and method and how it should interact with the briefing and construction phases.

Providing a practical tool to running an efficient project each guide follows the same format leading you through the core tasks at each stage supported by tips, definitions, templates and useful techniques. Five theoretical scenarios are used throughout the guides to illustrate how the Plan of Work can be applied on various project types and sizes including an extension to a house, a new library and a large office building.

These guides will provide unrivalled support for practices on all projects – large and small – and across all types of procurement.
