On 5 November RIBA launched its concise and domestic building contracts.  The intention is that they can be used for small to medium sized projects.  As one would expect the building contracts fit neatly into the RIBA family, as they sit alongside RIBA’s professional appointments and they use RIBA’s Plan of Work.  It will be interesting to see whether the market is willing to adopt RIBA’s forms over more established contracts such as the JCT Minor Works and Intermediate contracts.
