The newly released documents at the heart of the AIA Contract Documents program – the A201 – related AIA Owner-Architect Agreements – are revised by the Documents Committee on a 10-year cycle. The Documents Committee strives to achieve balance in the contract language and to build consensus among the industry stakeholders. This program will give attendees an insight into the AIA’s revision process, as well as a chance to learn about the revised Owner-Architect agreements. Subject matter experts and practitioners will share their experiences with all participants as they examine the newly revised Owner-Architect agreements. The program will prepare participants to select appropriate AIA contracts for their particular project and practice, as well as to evaluate the suitability of alternative contract terms and language. Presenters will also discuss the new Sustainable Projects Exhibit and explore how it can provide a positive impact on the health and safety of building occupants.
