This is the first 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 7, 0 and 1 this book is about much more than briefing; it guides you through the brand new Stage 0 - Strategic Definition - as well as how Stage 7 - In Use - can feed into the definition process reflecting the circular principles of the new Plan of Work. 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. The series editor, Dale Sinclair, is a highly successful and experienced practitioner, lecturer and author. He is RIBA Vice President, Practice and Profession, and he led the development of the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Paul is a thought leader, architect and director of 'through...' a built environment consultancy that combines behavioural economics with building physics and architecture. Whilst studying at Sheffield University he co-developed new collaborative studio teaching methods empowered by 3D CAD, in 2000 he founded 'Teamwork', a pan industry 'learning by doing organisation' that explored innovation in multi-disciplinary working for better built environment as fuelled by BIM. More recently he established the industry think tank 'Whetstone' with the intent of sharpening the cutting edge of a 21st century industry, through cooperative processes, big data, social media and 'everyware' technologies. It focuses on enabling built environment outcomes that serve and empower a diverse and thriving society. He has been a RIBA national councillor and is an acknowledged expert on briefing, concept and feasibility studies as well as integrated working and client-focused design solutions.
