This is the third in a must-have series of step-by-step guides to using the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 on your project. Drawing together stages 4, 5 and 6 this book explains what needs to have been achieved for Technical Design to begin, how to achieve success in the construction phase as well as the importance of a comprehensive Handover Strategy.
Providing a practical tool to running an efficient project each guide follows the same format leading you through the core tasks at each stage supported by tips, definitions, templates and useful techniques. Five theoretical scenarios are used throughout the guides to illustrate how the Plan of Work can be applied on various project types and sizes including an extension to a house, a new library and a large office building.
These guides will provide unrivalled support for practices on all projects - large and small - and across all types of procurement. It will also be invaluable for architectural students at Part 3 who are getting to grips with the realities of practice as well as others involved in the briefing and definition stages including clients.
