The American Institute of Architects released 13 new and updated contract documents earlier this week that the organization says will help architects and contractors with protecting their projects and businesses.

One of the most notable changes includes the new Contractor-Subcontractor Master Agreement and its accompanying work order, which allow a contractor and subcontractor to agree to a predefined set of terms that apply to multiple scopes of the work, the AIA said.

The American Institute of Architects released 13 new and updated contract documents earlier this week that the organization says will help architects and contractors with protecting their projects and businesses.

Other notable changes include:

  • Master Agreements, which now align with the 2017 core AIA document updates;
  • Instructions to Bidders, which now includes designation of bidding documents in electronic form or paper copy; and
  • Architect-Consultant Agreement for Special Services now includes the copyrights, licenses and payment provisions of the prime agreement. Mediation was added as a condition precedent to binding dispute resolution.

“The AIA Documents Committee routinely reviews its legal agreements to ensure they reflect the latest trends and nuances we’re seeing in the industry,” said AIA Contract Documents and Risk Management Managing Director Kenneth Cobleigh, Esq.
