Small Projects Handbook (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This hands-on, no-nonsense guide to running smaller projects - most

under GBP250,000 in value - will become your 'bible' in day-to-day practice.

Smaller practices often find it hard to turn a profit as they spend too much

time and money - especially during the design stages - trying to compete and

are unsure as to what they can safely dispense with whilst still being rigorous

and delivering quality. This book provides reassurance as to how to achieve

great results on a budget, utilising stripped-back and efficient solutions,

while following the principles and stages of the RIBA Plan of Work.

Each chapter provides:

simple step-by-step guidance to the key tasks in that stage of the Plan

of Work including inputs, outputs, stage activities and sustainability


in-text features which break down complex tasks and highlight best

practice with pragmatic, real world advice including 'tips', 'warnings' and

guidance on forms and templates

inspiring case studies of small projects that document the architect's

experience of the process, including projects from Alma-nac, Chris Dyson

Architects and Tonkin Liu

guidance at each Plan of Work stage on the relevant practice issues that

will help you to run your small project more effectively.

Designed as a project handbook for smaller and medium sized

architectural practices, it is also invaluable for Part 3 students getting to

grips with how projects are run within the RIBA Plan of Work framework.

Everybody in the project team - including clients, contractors and consultants

- will find this a handy guide to the project process, full of useful insights

and solutions.
