Buildings guide

Expert advice for people commissioning and managing building projects, including clients from the public, private and voluntary sectors.

Creating excellent buildings is drawn from knowledge of many experienced clients about how to deliver a high quality building. It explains the sometimes complex world of construction, and shows you what you need to do to get the best from all the people involved.

This guide has been written for the ‘client’, the person or group that ‘owns’ the project.
