The American Institute of Architects will soon be releasing its “green” model contracts. The AIA announced last fall that it would be releasing five new contracts in the first quarter of 2012.
The five contracts are:
- A101™-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement between Owner and Contractor, for use on a Sustainable Project where the basis of payment is a Stipulated Sum.
- B101™-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, for use on a Sustainable Project.
- A201™-2007 SP, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, for use on a Sustainable Project.
- C401™-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Architect and Consultant, for use on a Sustainable Project.
- A401™-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Contractor and Subcontractor, for use on a Sustainable Project.
For those of you that are not familiar with AIA’s “green” efforts, you may want to look at the AIA Document D503™-2011, Guide for Sustainable Projects. (requires registration) This document includes Agreement Amendments and Supplementary Conditions. In addition to providing model language that may be used to amend or supplement AIA Contract Documents for design-bid-build projects, the Guide discusses the applicability of key concepts to other delivery models such as design-build, construction management and integrated project delivery.
We are looking forward to see what the new AIA contracts look like, and even more forward to some green projects in the Midwest.
