The JSA team work in accordance with he RIBA Plan of Works
The RIBA Plan of Work is a framework that sets out the key stages involved in the design and construction of a building project. The Plan of Work is divided into eight stages, which are as follows:
Stage 1: Strategic Definition
This stage involves defining the client’s requirements, developing a project brief, and establishing the project budget and timeline.
Stage 2: Preparation and Brief
During this stage, the design team prepares the detailed project brief and carries out any necessary site surveys or investigations. The team will also assess any planning or regulatory requirements.
Stage 3: Concept Design
The concept design stage involves developing initial design concepts and ideas for the project, which are presented to the client for feedback.
Stage 4: Developed Design
During this stage, the design team further develops the design, including detailed plans, elevations, and 3D models. The team will also consider any environmental, sustainability, or accessibility factors.
Stage 5: Technical Design
In this stage, the design team develops detailed technical drawings and specifications, including structural, mechanical, and electrical details. This stage will also include any necessary planning submissions.
Stage 6: Construction
This stage involves the construction of the building, including site preparation, foundations, and building works. The design team will carry out inspections and monitor progress to ensure that the construction meets the design specifications.

Stage 7: Handover and Closeout
At this stage, the building is completed and handed over to the client. The design team will carry out any necessary testing and commissioning, and the client will take ownership of the building.
Stage 8: In Use
During this final stage, the building is occupied and in use. The design team will carry out any necessary post-occupancy evaluations and maintenance, and the building will be monitored to ensure that it continues to meet the client’s requirements and remains functional and safe.
The RIBA Plan of Work provides a structured approach to building design and construction, helping to ensure that projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the required standards.
