AIA Releases New Contract Documents

 
The Washington, D.C.-based American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently released six new AIA Contract Documents, including a new building information modeling (BIM) exhibit, as well as two new integrated project delivery (IPD) agreements, two new design-build agreements, and a scope of services document. These new documents are collectively called the 3.5 Release.

"We understand that the design and construction industry is evolving, and we are pleased to lead the way by introducing new documents that provide a roadmap for navigating BIM and IPD," says Suzanne Harness, managing director and counsel, AIA Contract Documents. "This latest release continues the AIA's long-standing tradition of providing documents that are easy to use, reflect current industry practices, and fairly balance all parties' interests."

Buildings owners and facility managers may be particularly interested in the new BIM portion of the documents. The first of its kind in the industry, the new BIM exhibit, E202-2008, was written by industry practitioners as a practical tool for managing the use of BIM across the entire project. Among other things, it sets the requirements and authorized uses for BIM content and identifies BIM authors at five progressive levels of development. It also establishes protocols for model ownership, conflict resolution, storage, viewing, and archiving. Although written primarily to support a project using IPD, E202-2008 may also be used with more traditional methods of project delivery. A free sample of the BIM exhibit is available at www.aiacontractdocuments.org.
