A new set of contracts – the Architect's Design and Management suite, published by the Association of Consultant Architects – is to be released in February 2017.

It is intended for use in small to medium-sized projects, where the client may have limited experience of development and is keen to work closely with the architect. The construction team is directly employed by the client and the suite has a common contractual structure for consultants and contractors.
