The RIBA Concise Professional Services Contract is for the appointment of an Architect or Consultant where the Architect/Consultant undertakes a commission for architectural services for simple, non-complex, commercial projects of any value, in which the building works will be carried out using traditional forms of building contract, such as the RIBA Concise Building Contract, the JCT Minor Works Building Contract or the JCT Intermediate Building Contract.
The RIBA Concise Professional Services Contract is written in plain English and includes the following key features:
* is suitable for smaller, less complex commercial projects and so has a `light' version of the RIBA Standard Professional Services Contract conditions
* is suitable for commissions procured on the basis of a traditional form of building contract where tendering occurs at the end of Stage 4 (Technical Design)
* focuses on the Architect/Consultant purely providing the Architectural Services
