Spatial requirements

The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 defines spatial requirements as:

‘A schedule of rooms and/or spaces that will achieve the Client Requirements. The Spatial Requirements for the building as a whole are set at Stage 0 (strategic definition). By the end of Stage 1 (preparation and briefing), the Spatial Requirements will have been developed in detail and incorporated into the Project Brief.’
