AIA Guide for Sustainable Projects

 
Sustainable-Project-Guide

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has announced a May 2011 release for AIA Document D503™-2011, Guide for Sustainable Projects, including Agreement Amendments and Supplementary Conditions (“Guide”).

The Guide will be free and has been developed to assist the understanding of contractual considerations unique to sustainable design and construction projects.  The Guide includes model language that can be used to supplement or amend these projects.

“The AIA Contract Documents program continues to revise existing documents and develop new documents and guides, as necessary, to remain current with trends and changes in the industry and law,” says Ken Cobleigh, Managing Director and Counsel for AIA Contract Documents content. “The development of the Guide reflects the shifting landscape in the industry and addresses key issues of interest to all parties involved in these types of projects.”

The Guide addresses current sustainable design and construction discussion and concepts, including:

  • Certification systems, codes and legislation affecting sustainable design and construction projects          
  • Risks and responsibilities faced by owners, contractors and architects on sustainable design and construction projects, and
  • Recommendations for model language to assist the architect in developing a scope of services and to assist all project participants in appropriately allocating risks and responsibilities.

When the Guide becomes available in May, it will be available at www.aia.org/sustainableprojectsguide
