PRE HANDOVER PROCESSES

LEADING UP TO CONSTRUCTION

Identify client’s Business Case and Strategic Brief and other core project requirements.
 
 
 The brief is prepared in order to better define the strategic define of future processes required by your project.
 
Strategic Definition is a new stage in which a project is strategically appraised and defined before a detailed brief is created. This is particularly relevant in the context of sustainability, when a refurbishment or extension, or indeed a rationalised space plan, may be more appropriate than a new building. Certain activities in Stage 0 are derived from the former (RIBA Outline Plan of Work 2007) Stage A – Appraisal.
 
Identify client’s Business Case and Strategic Brief and other core project requirements.
 
Initial considerations for assembling the project team.
 
 
 
Initial considerations for assembling the project team.
The Developed Design will be coordinated and aligned with the Cost Information by the end of Stage 3. This may not increase the amount of design work required, but extra time will be needed to review information and implement any changes that arise from comments made before all the outputs are coordinated prior to the Information Exchange at the end of Stage 3.

Develop Project Objectives including and Sustainability Aspirations Project Budget, other parameters or constraints and develop Initial Project Brief.

Undertake Feasibility Studies and review of Site Information

Prepare Project Roles Table and continue assembling the project team.

 Agree Schedule of Services, design Responsibility Matrix and Information Exchanges and prepare Project Execution Plan including Technology and Communication Strategies and consideration of Common Standards to be used.

Summary definitions of the concept 
 
PREPARE CONCEPT DESIGN 
Including outline proposals for structural design, building services systems, outline specifications and preliminary Cost Information along with relevant Project Strategies in accordance with Design Programme. Agree alterations to brief and issue Final Project Brief.
Prepare Sustainability Strategy, Operational Strategy review and Risk Assessments. Undertake third party consultations as required and any Research and Development aspects.
 
PROCUREMENT
The procurement strategy does not fundamentally alter the progression of the design or the level of detail prepared at a given stage. However,
Information Exchanges will vary depending on the selected procurement route and Building Contract. 
The procurement route may dictate the Project Programme and may result in certain stages overlapping or being undertaken concurrently. A bespoke RIBA Plan of Work 2013 will clarify the stage overlaps. The Project Programme will set out the specific stage dates and detailed programme duration.
 
TYPES OF PROCUREMENT TO CHOOSE FROM

There are four main procurement options, they are as follows:

1. Traditional method Design and Build.

2. Management Contracting.

3. Method Public-Private Partnership (PPP).

4. Traditional method.

Developed Design 

Including coordinated and updated proposals for structural design, building services systems, outline specifications, Information and Strategies in accordance with Design Programme.

Review and update Sustainability, and Operational Handover Strategies Risk Assessments. Undertake third party consultations as required and conclude Research and Development aspects.

Review and update Project Execution Plan, including Change Control Procedures.

Connecting Information

Procurement, the programme and (town) planning activities vary widely from project to project and resolving this conundrum has been one of the biggest challenges in the creation of the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. To overcome this variability, the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 allows users to generate their own bespoke practice or project specific Plan of Work.

Planning permission is the legal process of determining whether proposed developmentsshould be permitted. Responsibility for planning lies with local planning authorities (usually the planning department of the district or borough council). The legislation, policy and guidance that underpins planning in England can be found on the government‘s National Planning Practice Guidance website.

Other than permitted developments, (which are considered to have insignificant impact), all developments require planning permission. The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 sets out details for developments that might be permitted without requiring a planning application.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) decides national planning policy for England and this is set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.

Finalising the technical design

Prepare Technical Design in accordance with Responsibility Matrix Project Strategies to include  all architectural, structural and building services information, specialist subcontractor design and specifications, in accordance with Design Programme.

Procurement and tendering processes are undertaken and created to interact with other quantity surveying information such as a scope of works of bill of quantities. The contract NEC or JCT will require certain elements to be completed depending on the project size, location and value.

Review Construction Strategies, including sequencing and update the Health and Safety Strategy to it’s final stages.

 

Handing over the project to the main contractor

This is the final stage of the pre-handover process. After all of the documentation required have been completed and assessed by the Quantity Surveyor, Architect and Structural Engineer. The contract will be presented to the contractor and the main contractors insurances will kick in and the programme will begin. 

The Quantity Surveyor will monitor the projects, costs, interim payments, variations, provisional sums and the architect.

This is the final chance to ensure that a strategic sustainability review of client needs and potential sites has been carried out, including reuse of existing facilities, building components or materials.

Information Exchanges (at stage completion)

The brief prepared to enable the Strategic Definition of the project. Strategic considerations might include considering different sites, whether to extend, refurbish or build new and the key Project Outcomes, as well as initial considerations for the Project Programme and assembling the project team.
