A201-2007
General Conditions of the Contract for Construction

The general conditions are an integral part of the contract for construction for a large project and they are incorporated by reference into the owner/contractor agreement. They set forth the rights, responsibilities, and relationships of the owner, contractor, and architect. Though not a party to the contract for construction between owner and contractor, the architect participates in the preparation of the contract documents and performs construction phase duties and responsibilities described in detail in the general conditions. AIA Document A201™-2007 is adopted by reference in owner/architect, owner/contractor, and contractor/subcontractor agreements in the Conventional (A201) family of documents; thus, it is often called the “keystone” document.

B101-2007
(formerly B151-1997), Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect

AIA Document B101™-2007 is a one-part standard form of agreement between owner and architect for building design and construction contract administration. AIA Document B101-2007 was developed to replace AIA Documents B141™-1997 Parts 1 and 2, and B151-1997 (expired 2009), but it more closely follows the format of B151-1997. Services are divided traditionally into basic and additional services. Basic services are performed in five phases: schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding or negotiation, and construction. This agreement may be used with a variety of compensation methods, including percentage of construction cost and stipulated sum. B101-2007 is intended to be used in conjunction with AIA Document A201™-2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, which it incorporates by reference.

B102-2007
(formerly B141-1997 Part 1), Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect without a Predefined Scope of Architect’s Services

AIA Document B102™-2007 replaces and serves the same purpose as B141-1997 Part 1 (expired 2009). AIA Document B102-2007 is a standard form of agreement between owner and architect that contains terms and conditions and compensation details. B102-2007 does not include a scope of architect’s services, which must be inserted in Article 1 or attached as an exhibit. Separation of the scope of services from the owner/architect agreement allows users the freedom to append alternative scopes of services. AIA standard form scopes of services documents that may be paired with B102-2007 include AIA Documents B203™-2007, Site Evaluation and Planning; B204™-2007, Value Analysis; B205™-2007, Historic Preservation; B206™-2007, Security Evaluation and Planning; B209™-2007, Construction Contract Administration; B210™-2007, Facility Support; B211™-2007, Commissioning; B214™-2007, LEED® Certification; B252™-2007, Architectural Interior Design; and B253™-2007, Furniture, Furnishings and Equipment Design.

B103-2007
Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Large or Complex Project

AIA Document B103™-2007 is a standard form of agreement between owner and architect intended for use on large or complex projects. AIA Document B103-2007 was developed to replace AIA Documents B141™-1997 Parts 1 and 2, and B151™-1997 (expired 2009) specifically with respect to large or complex projects. B103-2007 assumes that the owner will retain third parties to provide cost estimates and project schedules, and may implement fast-track, phased or accelerated scheduling. Services are divided along the traditional lines of basic and additional services. Basic services are based on five phases: schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding or negotiation, and construction. The architect does not prepare cost estimates, but designs the project to meet the owner’s budget for the cost of the work at the conclusion of the design development phase services. This document may be used with a variety of compensation methods. B103-2007 is intended to be used in conjunction with AIA Document A201™-2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, which it incorporates by reference.

B201-2007
(formerly B141-1997 Part 2), Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Design and Construction Contract Administration

AIA Document B201™-2007 replaces B141-1997 Part 2 (expired 2009). AIA Document B201-2007 defines the architect’s traditional scope of services for design and construction contract administration in a standard form that the owner and architect can modify to suit the needs of the project. The services set forth in B201-2007 parallel those set forth in AIA Document B101™-2007: the traditional division of services into basic and additional services, with five phases of basic services. B201-2007 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™-2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B201-2007 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement

B202-2009
Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Programming

AIA Document B202™-2009 establishes duties and responsibilities where the architect provides the owner with programming services. The architect’s programming services are set forth in a series of iterative steps, from a broad identification of priorities, values and goals of the programming participants to working with the owner to confirm the owner’s objectives for the project. The programming services also include information gathering to develop performance and design criteria, and developing a final program of project requirements. AIA Document B202-2009 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™-2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B202-2009 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement.

B203-2007
Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Site Evaluation and Planning

AIA Document B203™-2007 is intended for use where the architect provides the owner with services to assist in site selection for a project. Under this scope, the architect’s services may include analysis of the owner’s program and alternative sites, site utilization studies, and other analysis, such as planning and zoning requirements, site context, historic resources, utilities, environmental impact, and parking and circulation. AIA Document B203 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™-2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B203-2007 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement. B203 was revised in 2007 to align, as applicable, with AIA Document B101™-2007

B205-2007
Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Historic Preservation
B206-2007
Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Security Evaluation and Planning

AIA Document B206™-2007 establishes duties and responsibilities where the architect provides services for projects that require greater security features and protection than would normally be incorporated into a building design. This scope requires the architect to identify and analyze the threats to a facility, survey the facility with respect to those threats, and prepare a risk assessment report. Following the owner’s approval of the report, the architect prepares design documents and a security report. AIA Document B206-2007 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™-2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B206-2007 is a scope of services document and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement. B206 was revised in 2007 to align with AIA Document B101™-2007.

C101-1993
(formerly C801-1993), Joint Venture Agreement for Professional Services

AIA Document C101™-1993 is intended for use by two or more parties to provide for their mutual rights and obligations in forming a joint venture. It is intended that the joint venture, once established, will enter into an agreement with the owner to provide professional services. The parties may be all architects, all engineers, a combination of architects and engineers, or another combination of professionals. The document provides a choice between two methods of joint venture operation. The “division of compensation” method assumes that services provided and the compensation received will be divided among the parties in the proportions agreed to at the outset of the project. Each party’s profitability is then dependent on individual performance of pre-assigned tasks and is not directly tied to that of the other parties. The “division of profit and loss” method is based on each party performing work and billing the joint venture at cost plus a nominal amount for overhead. The ultimate profit or loss of the joint venture is divided between or among the parties at completion of the project, based on their respective interests. NOTE: C801-1993 expired in 2009.

C401-2007
formerly C141-1997, Standard Form of Agreement Between Architect and Consultant

AIA Document C401™-2007 is a standard form of agreement between the architect and the consultant providing services to the architect. AIA Document C401-2007 is suitable for use with all types of consultants, including consulting architects. This document may be used with a variety of compensation methods. C401-2007 assumes and incorporates by reference a preexisting owner/architect agreement known as the “prime agreement.” AIA Documents B101™-2007, B103™-2007, B104™-2007, B105™-2007 and B152™-2007 are the documents most frequently used to establish the prime agreement. C401-2007 was modified in 2007 to be shorter and more flexible by “flowing down” the provisions of the prime agreement, except as specifically stated in C401. NOTE: C141-1997 expired in 2009.

C727-1992
Standard Form of Agreement Between Architect and Consultant for Special Services
AIA Document C727™-1992 provides only the terms and conditions of the agreement between the architect and the consultant—the description of services is left entirely to the parties, and must be inserted in the agreement or attached in an exhibit. It is often used for planning, feasibility studies, post-occupancy studies, and other services that require specialized descriptions.
