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.

RIBA Job Book (9th edition)

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.

Free Downloads: Checklists and Figures

A comprehensive set of editable template documents to help you run projects to a consistently high standard are available to download. The RIBA Job Book checklists and figures are available here.

Professional Practice in Architecture: A Primer

Aimed at students of architecture, this primer defines the critical subject area of professional studies which runs as a thread through the new RIBA validation criteria for Parts 1 and 2. Written by Stephen Brookhouse, author of the highly successful Part 3 Handbook, the book places professional issues in the context of the language and activities of the design studio. 

Suitable across the whole 5-year Masters Architecture degree course, it gives students the conceptual resources and tools they need to investigate professional issues. Using short case studies that relate to the RIBA Plan of Work, it bridges the gap between the needs of the student and the overly technical information sources used by practicing professionals. 

Drawing on a range of sources, including legal, regulatory, managerial and educational, especially work-based learning, Professional Practice in Architecture: A Primer gives a taste of the subject area, encouraging further exploration and enshrining the principles that will form an invaluable foundation to future professional practice.
