The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 defines site queries as: ‘Questions directed to the design team by the contractor (sometimes more formally called ‘a request for information’) to clarify information in the Building Contract documentation or requesting information that was not complete when the Building Contract was agreed.’
It suggests that the design team should be clear about any ongoing commitments when they submit their proposals and that the client may wish to establish who will deal with site queries. It proposes that in many instances there is no substitute for communicating directly with the construction team on site.
