Description

Whether for domestic or commercial, large or small projects, this RIBA guide sets out everything that a client needs to be aware of when engaging the services of an architect. Straightforward and completely up to date, this August 2016 revision includes vital updates to the CDM 2015 Regulations. 

As well as explaining the considerable added value that the right architect can bring to the success of a project, this guide also talks clients through the formal appointment mechanisms that architects will expect to transact. General background information outlining the importance of the brief and project management is supported by an explanation of the industry-standard RIBA Plan of Work 2013, and the guide also includes the various options for calculating fees and major legislation affecting a project.

Aimed at all construction clients - especially those who have not carried out this role before - this guide offers a quick and easy overview of the value, mechanisms and context of appointing an architect.
