There will be a domestic building contract for a customer and contractor. This is simple and clearly laid out and for all types of non-commercial work. There will also be a concise building contract for an employer and a contractor. This is suitable for all types of simple commercial building work.
At NBS, we have been working hard behind the scenes to develop a digital tool to allow users to generate a RIBA Building Contract online. This tool will be a pay-per-use service that architects and contract administrators can use through their web-browser whether on a PC or a Mac. Being pay-per-user means that there is no need to pay for a subscription service - the cost can simply be passed onto the project. Being online means that there is no need to download and install any software.

...and of course, being in R+D I am naturally pro-digital, but the contracts can be bought in paper too.
