The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has published guidance to help practices steer their route to recovery from the COVID-19 crisis and build future resilience.
The RIBA Recovery Roadmap is divided into three phases: Response, Recovery and Resilience. Each phase considers a series of actions that practices can take to respond to challenges across different areas of their business throughout this crisis and beyond. These range from stabilising finances and supporting staff wellbeing in the immediate term to planning to reopen the office and winning new work in the coming weeks.
The topics covered in each phase respond directly to concerns raised by RIBA members from all practice sizes across the UK.
RIBA President, Alan Jones, said:
“Despite the economic uncertainty, practices must take proactive steps now to help alleviate challenges ahead.
Drawing on insights from experts and practitioners, this guidance has been created exclusively for members to guide key business decisions and adapt their strategies to be in the best position for the months ahead.
As we enter this recovery phase, it remains our priority to provide our members and practices with the support they need.”
