Greenleaf Architecture offers a full range of services, relevant to whole building projects and related matters. 

The RIBA plan of work organises the process of building from the initial briefing process through to using building projects.  The details of each stage varies to suit specific projects and this guide should be used as a general guide for the preparation of detailed professional services, consultants and building contracts.  The plan of work is an industry standard in the construction industry used by the majority of other disciplines such as structural engineering and quantity surveying.
