The RIBA Concise Professional Services Contract is for the appointment of an Architect or Consultant where the Architect/Consultant undertakes a commission for architectural services for simple, non-complex, commercial projects of any value, in which the building works will be carried out using traditional forms of building contract, such as the RIBA Concise Building Contract, the JCT Minor Works Building Contract or the JCT Intermediate Building Contract.
The RIBA has produced a prospectus of exemplary places that demonstrate high quality design in response to Sir Oliver Letwin's independent review of build out rates.
RIBA Chartered Practices have access to advice on employment and HR areas such as payroll and health and safety through a comprehensive telephone and online consultancy service offered by Croner.
