The RIBA Plan of Work and the role of the client

Share This:

After July’s hugely successful #ceyhawards , we are pleased to be returning from our summer break at the end of September to bring you our next set of ‘excellence’ breakfasts. This Autumn we will be facilitating a number of sessions exploring the different stages of the RIBA Plan of Work (PoW) through the lens of the key players involved.

First developed in 1963, the RIBA Plan of Work is the definitive UK model for the building design and construction process. The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 organises the process of briefing, designing, constructing, maintaining, operating and using building projects into a number of key stages, 0 through to 7 (8 stages in total).

Our first event in the series on 30th September will focus Stage 0 – Strategic Definition. We will open with CEYH Chair Tom Oulton who will deliver an overview of why the PoW empowers the client.This will be followed by Daving Hemming, Head of Estates for Leeds Beckett University, who will explain how the client benefits from identifying their requirements before the design process begins.

The role of the client and in particular the ‘intelligent’ client is cropping up more and more in discussions as we move towards a more collaborative working model and digitisation. How can we educate our clients and does the RIBA PoW help drive this? Are you are client wanting to understand more about your requirements and how they can be practically applied? Then come along on the 30th and join our discussion.
