The RIBA Plan of Work 2020 describes the contractor led procurement route as: ‘Contractors provide a design team to develop then submit their concept design at the end of stage 2 as proposals for the tendering process, typically leading to two teams proceeding to Stage 3. The lead designer or the contractor’s design manager will prepare a Design Programme that confirms when the design information from the design team and/ or specialist subcontractors will be produced. During Stage 3, assessments will be finalised, and one construction team will be appointed preferred bidder. The preferred bidder will continue tendering core packages to finalise their contract sum. A ‘shadow’ design team may be part of the client team that review this information for compliance with the requirements of the Building Contract. The timing of the contract award will depend on the planning process.’
