From the Foreword by Gren Tipper, Director of the Construction Clients Group of Constructing Excellence
This book assists clients in understanding how the construction industry works, what they need to do at each stage of the construction process and, importantly, where to find help.
From the Foreword by Richard Saxon CBE
Armed with the insights in this book, clients should be more confident of success.
Stephen Hodder MBE, Chairman, Hodder + Partners and RIBA President 2013-2015
One of the primary aims of my presidential term has been to elevate the development of a coherent and effective programme of client support and influence, so that the Royal Institute of British Architects can meet its aspiration to become the first port of call for anyone seeking guidance about projects in the built environment. This book is a key contributor to the process, and an essential read for any client, experienced or otherwise, in securing successful outcomes. It will also be an invaluable aid to Client Advisors, Architects, Consultants and all those who form part of the project team.
