AIA Unveils New and Updated AIA Contract

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Contract Documents team announced

today several additions and updates to its suite of offerings: a brand-new

family of Program Management documents; a new, free Guide for Small Projects;

an updated Guide for Sustainable Projects; and updated BIM and Digital Practice

Documents. The new documents and updates are designed to improve the contract

negotiation experience for architects, building owners, general contractors and

other design and construction professionals, according to the association.

The new documents and guides are available in the latest version of AIA

Contract Documents software, which is now compatible with Microsoft Office 2013

and Windows 8.

“We are very pleased with the new offerings and updates, as they truly will

assist owners, design professionals and contractors in the process of contract

negotiation, and project collaboration and integration,” says Ken Cobleigh, managing

director and counsel at AIA. “We worked with a wide variety of industry

professionals– including architects, contractors, lawyers and insurance professionals

on these new documents. As a result, they are fair and balanced, and help

appropriately manage risk throughout the design and construction process.”
