This new edition of RIBA’s classic handbook brings guidance right up to date. It covers the full deck of management competencies, including how to run your finances, win work, employ people, operate your office, handle information, assure quality, and manage your risks. In print for 50 years, this enduring reference book has been comprehensively restructured and modernised to reflect the latest changes in practice.

Aimed at those who are already managing a design studio or setting up a practice, it provides advice on all aspects of practising architecture in the UK and is a core reference book for practitioners and students alike. Divided into two parts, the first characterises and quantifies the business of designing buildings in the context of the construction industry. It outlines what it means to be a member of the architect profession and considers the trends that seem likely to influence its future direction.

The second part sets out the overlapping activities that together constitute practice management. A chapter on business strategy is followed by seven topic-specific chapters organised to:
  • Distinguish between what you must do by law, what you should do to conform to professional codes of conduct, and what you might do to compete in the market
  • Outline the most important management considerations
  • Highlight the tactics and tools available to you
  • Signpost useful resources and sources of more detailed information.

A must-have handbook for chartered members of RIBA and ARB registered architects. The guidance accounts for architects’ duties under ARB’s Architects Code; and chartered members’ duties under the RIBA Code of Professional Conduct and chartered practices’ duties under the RIBA Code of Professional Practice.
