Fully revised and updated to align with the 2020 edition of the RIBA Plan of Work, the RIBA Subconsultant Professional Services Contract is suitable for when an Architect or Consultant wishes, or perhaps is required, by the client to appoint a subconsultant to carry out part of the Architect or Consultant’s services, and where the contract terms are compatible with the Head Agreement between the client and the Architect or Consultant.
The RIBA Subconsultant Professional Services Contract is suitable for both commercial work and non-commercial work directly undertaken for a consumer client, such as work undertaken on a client’s home.
The Contract is not suitable for use where the client appoints sub-consultants or specialists directly, or for the appointment of a Principal Designer as a subconsultant under the CDM Regulations 2015. The RIBA recommends that an RIBA Principal Designer Professional Services Contract is used.
