Aia Agreement

In the second part, we will continue the discussion on these agreements. If you are an owner, contractor or subcontractor, contact me here with questions or comments about AIA agreements. The AIA A101 is the standard form of the American Institute of Architects agreement, which is used to establish clearly defined business relationships between a pand and a contractor. These contracts were developed, published and promoted by a highly influential nationally renowned industrial group. Therefore, the standardized version is designed to protect the interests of the contractor and protect a contractor to the sometimes costly detriment of the rights and flexibilities of the owner. You need a detailed agreement. What for? What happens if there is an argument about one aspect of the work? Or its timing? Responsibility for bad work or delay must be strictly delineated. Do you need help deciding which AIA documents should be used?
