The RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract is for the appointment of an Architect or Consultant and provides comprehensive contract terms suitable where the Architect/Consultant undertakes a commission for architectural services on projects using a traditional form of procurement.

The RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract is an agreement with a business client or public authority and is not suitable for non-commercial work undertaken for a consumer client, such as work done to a client's home.

Fully revised and updated to align with the 2020 edition of the RIBA Plan of Work, the RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract is for the appointment of an Architect or Consultant and provides comprehensive contract terms suitable where the Architect/Consultant undertakes a commission for architectural services on projects using a traditional form of procurement.

Easy to understand The RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract is written in plain English, which provides three key benefits: the language used in the contract is succinct and easy to understand, compared to other standard forms of contracts the terms of the contract are fair and equitable for both client and Architect/Consultant the clause structure used in the contract avoids the use of large numbers of sub-sub clauses and large amounts of cross-referencing between provisions Key changes in the new 2018 edition of the RIBA suite of Professional Services Contracts.

Novation, the RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract includes a novation clause and the option for the architect/consultant to 'walk away' from the project, if a Design & Build procurement route is subsequently chosen CDM Regulations 2015, the Contracts have been fully updated to comply with the CDM Regulations 2015 and greater guidance is given on the Regulations with more clarity around the role of Principal Designer Fees and charges, the 'Fees' section has been simplified by removing the boxes that aligned fees to stages of the Plan of Work.

This is now a 'free-hand' text box so that users can simply set out their fees as they wish/require Fee payments, the payment frequency options have been expanded as well as having the additional option of using a draw-down schedule.

The RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract is not suitable for the appointment of the Principal Designer under the CDM regulations 2015 and the RIBA recommends that an RIBA Principal Designer Professional Services Contract is used.
