RIBA chartered practice

As a RIBA-accredited Architectural Practice serving clients in Kent and the Southeast, we’re governed to work in accordance with RIBA professional code of conduct. We’re certified, too, to operate an ISO 9001 Quality Management System and an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.

RIBA Plan of Work

The RIBA Plan of Work helps you and us by providing of a simple and clear and flexible framework for the processes that your project will go through. It organises the process of briefing, designing, construction, handover and operation of the building into eight stages and explains the stage outcomes, core tasks and information exchanges required at each stage.

We use the Plan of Work as it has become the industry standard and so is understood by everyone involved. It also reflects today’s requirements for Sustainability and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Obviously, there are significant differences of scale and complexity between, say, designing a new school facility or a large residential development. The Plan of Work has been conceived to be adaptable to all building typologies, whether you are taking the traditional procurement route or the design and build route.
