Project brief derogations
The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 defines ‘project brief derogations’ as; ‘A record in the Stage Report of Stage 2 (concept design) used to identify and agree where aspects of the design do not need to comply with the Project Brief.’
This might result in the need to update the project brief so that it is consistent with the concept design, and on design and build projects, the revised project brief and concept design may form part of the employer’s requirements.
