Description

The second edition of the popular 'Starting a Practice: A Plan of Work' is a fully revised and updated guide to planning, setting up and running your architectural practice. Mapped to the RIBA Plan of Work 2013, it approaches starting a business as if it were a design project complete with briefing, sketch layouts and delivery.Comprehensive, accessible and easy to use, 'Starting a Practice' provides essential guidance on the many issues involved in establishing a successful business, including preparing a business plan, choosing the right company structure, seeking advice, monitoring finances, getting noticed and securing work; and much more.The book is full of practical advice gained from the author’s 30 years in practice but is aimed at starting up now, in the second decade of the 21st century, with its particular challenges and opportunities. It is invaluable reading for Part 3 students, young practitioners and those considering starting up on their own or wanting to consolidate an existing business.
