Aia Owner Architect Agreements

B132-2009, the standard form of the agreement between the owner and the architect, site manager like Adviser Edition, resembles B103, except that it expressly assumes that the owner uses a site manager who, during the design, provides a cost estimate, project planning and other services. B132 provides that the architect collaborates with the site manager during the design phases and assists the owner and site manager in the call for tenders or the obtaining of negotiated construction proposals. During the construction phase, the architect performs most of the traditional services defined in B101 and B103. However, in many cases, such as for example. B when reviewing bids or payment requests, responsibility is shared with the site manager. B101-2017 is a standard form of agreement between the owner and the architect for planning and construction services and includes the architect`s responsibility for cost estimation and project planning. B101 also includes services that help the owner to launch a call for tenders or obtain negotiated bids from contractors during the purchase. Services are subdivided into basic, complementary and complementary services. Basic services are provided in five phases: planning of the cirquit scheme, design, design documents, acquisition and management of construction contracts.

Additional services are identified as responsibilities of the architect at the time of contract execution, while additional services are defined as those created during the project. Choosing the most appropriate AIA agreement at the beginning of a project simplifies the design of the contract and provides a solid basis for communication between the architect and the owner. The AIA Documents Committee develops AIA contract documents through a rigorous process that includes contributions from contractors` organizations, homeowners` groups, architects, legal and insurance advisors and others involved in the construction process. AIA contract documents are regularly updated to reflect changes in the design and construction industry as well as the law. Since the courts have tested the agreements over time, users can confidently rely on the importance and interpretation of the contractual terms. These agreements provide a solid framework for relationships between owners, architects, contractors and other project participants. B103-2017, the standard form of the agreement between the owner and the architect for a complex project, resembles B101; For example, B103`s core services are performed in the same five phases as those described in B101. B103 differs from B101, however, in several respects. One of them is that B103 considers that the owner commissions third parties to provide cost estimates and project planning services during the design phases. B103 also believes that the owner can implement accelerated, phased or accelerated construction planning. In addition to the “flagship” contract, known as the B101, AIA offers several other owner-architect agreements that are essential for any commercial design project.
