About the plan of work. Laptop displaying Plan of Work 2013

The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 comprises eight work stages, each with clear boundaries, and details the tasks and outputs required at each stage. The online tool revolves around these eight project stages, providing a flexible ‘kit of parts’ that can be used to produce a focused practice or project-specific Plan of Work.

Of benefit to all those involved in the briefing, design, construction and post-occupancy process, it enables users to:

  • Customise a Plan of Work to create a bespoke practice-specific Plan of Work that reflects the common working methods of their practice or produce a project-specific Plan that can be developed with a client for a particular project
  • Download their customised Plan of Work
