The RIBA Job Book is the Royal Institute of British Architects’ long-established and recognised standard reference for running construction projects. This major new update fully reflects the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 and contemporary working practice. It embraces themes of collaboration within the project team, better briefing, advances in information technology and BIM, and the continued importance of sustainability including valuable detail on a range of ‘cradle to grave’ processes in a building project.
Applicable to all forms of procurement and to all sizes and types of project, the RIBA Job Book provides a systematic operational framework that is comprehensive in scope and easy-to-follow, and which examines step-by-step the key obligations of the architect or lead consultant. Setting out all the actions to be undertaken throughout a project, it includes invaluable checklists, notes and practical guidance. Its straightforward, no-nonsense coverage will form the cornerstone of any construction project, or office quality management system, making it essential reading for anyone in architectural practice or, indeed, for students undertaking their Part 3 examinations.
