Description

This fantastic bundle offer combines two of our latest practice management titles at a great price:

Handbook of Practice Management (9th edition)

The Handbook of Practice Management is the professional architect’s business management bible. This new edition is fully up-to-date, reflecting the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 – the industry standard framework for running projects – as well as the latest contemporary architectural practice management techniques.

Divided into three parts – focussing in turn on the industry, the practice, and the project – the handbook provides a fresh perspective on familiar topics, combined with insight into many new directions in practice management that can give any practice a cutting-edge, commercial advantage.

With useful pointers throughout to the many services provided by the RIBA and other industry organisations, the guidance covers education, setting up a practice, professionalism, law, financial management, people management, risk management, QA, IT, marketing strategy and winning clients, alongside innovative topics such as knowledge management and BIM. There are also thought-provoking sections on contemporary issues and future trends such as sustainability and the global context.

A must-read for all architects – whether sole practitioners or those working in small, medium or large firms – and with a clear, accessible layout and no-nonsense style aimed at busy professionals, this is the ideal companion to running a modern architectural practice.

Law in Practice: The RIBA Legal Handbook (2nd edition)

Intensely practical and clearly written, Law in Practice: the RIBA Legal Handbook, 2nd edition is the RIBA’s jargon-free, professional guide to the law as it relates to a construction project. This second edition is fully up-to-date with all recent changes in legislation and the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013.

Functioning both as a quick reference as well as an intelligent guide to complex issues, Law in Practice gives both students and practicing architects alike the tools to work through and argue issues of construction law for themselves, shedding light on potential pitfalls and pointing out wherever specialist advice is needed. It addresses all the fundamental issues of contemporary English construction law, allowing architects to make sound judgements, avoid disputes, and run projects on a safer basis. 

  • Why does an appointment need to be written?
  • What is a novation?
  • What does an overall cap on liability mean, and how can you convince a client to agree one? When should you notify your insurer of a potential claim?

Law in Practice answers all of these questions and many more. Basic principles, high concepts and hard cases are worked through in plain English, step-by-step as they arise throughout a project, with key legal mechanisms illustrated as simple line drawings.
