RIBA Plan of Work

The RIBA Plan of Work is the definitive UK model for the building, design and construction process. Download the RIBA Plan of Work 2020 Overview for the complete guidance.

The RIBA Plan of Work organises the process of briefing, designing, constructing and operating building projects into eight stages and explains the stage outcomes, core tasks and information exchanges required at each stage.

Guidance in the RIBA Plan of Work 2020 Overview is based on nearly seven years of feedback, gathered by the RIBA, from the construction industry. It now includes an expanded glossary, comparison to international plan of work equivalents and guidance on the following core project strategies:

  • Conservation Strategy
  • Cost Strategy
  • Fire Safety Strategy
  • Health and Safety Strategy
  • Inclusive Design Strategy
  • Planning Strategy
  • Plan for Use Strategy
  • Procurement Strategy
  • Sustainability Strategy - including detailed tasks aligned to the RIBA Sustainable Outcomes Guide
