Agreement Between Architect And Owner

B133-2014, the standard form of the agreement between the owner and the architect, site manager as a construction company, is also like B103, except that, like the B132, it is explicitly assumed that the owner will keep a site manager who will take over cost estimates, project planning and other services during the design. Unlike the B132, the B133 does not have a bidder or negotiation phase, as the project is assumed to be built by the site manager. During the construction phase, the architect provides services according to B101 and B103. B101-2017 is a standard agreement between the owner and architect for construction planning and construction work and includes the architect`s responsibility for costing and project planning. B101 also includes services to assist the owner in bidding or obtaining proposals to negotiate from contractors during the purchase. Services are subdivided into basic, back-up and back-up services. Basic services are carried out in five phases: schematic issue planning, design, construction documents, procurement and market management. Additional services are identified as architect`s managers at the time of the contract, while additional services are defined as as they appear during the project. In addition to the flagship contract, known as B101, AIA proposes several other owner-architect agreements that are essential for any commercial design project. B103-2017, the standard form of agreement between owner and architect for a complex project, is similar to B101; For example, the basic benefits of B103 are performed in the same five phases as those described in the B101. B103, however, differs from the B101 in several ways.

One of these is that B103 assumes that the owner retains third parties when providing quotes and project planning services during the design phases. B103 also assumes that the owner can implement an accelerated, progressive or accelerated construction plan. Choosing the most appropriate AIA agreement at the beginning of a project simplifies the drafting of contracts and provides a solid basis for communication between the architect and the owner. AIA COMITÉ Documents develops AIA contract documents as part of a rigorous process that includes contributions from subcontractor organizations, ownership groups, architects, legal and insurance advisors and other stakeholders in the construction process. AIA contract documents are regularly updated to reflect changes in the construction and construction sectors as well as in legislation. Since courts have tested agreements over time, users can rely on the importance and interpretation of the terms of the contract. These agreements provide a strong framework for relationships between owners, architects, contractors and other project participants.
