Announcing the Release of Four New Contract Documents

The American Institute of Architects is proud to announce the following four documents that launched on May 14, 2015:

1. AIA Document A145™–2015, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Design-Builder for a One or Two Family Residential Project is a streamlined, homeowner-friendly document created to meet the needs of residential design-builders.

2. AIA Document C102™–2015, Standard Form of Teaming Agreement between Team Manager and Team Member for the Purpose of Responding to a Solicitation and Pursuing a Project establishes the parties’ responsibilities in pursuing a project and requires them to negotiate project agreements up front.

3. AIA Document G742™–2015, Application and Certificate for Payment for a Design-Build Project

4. AIA Document G743™–2015, Continuation Sheet for a Design-Build Project

The new G742™–2015, Application and Certificate for Payment for a Design-Build Project and attendant G743™–2015, Continuation Sheet for a Design-Build Project are convenient forms on which the design-builder can apply for payment and the owner can certify the amount due. These forms round out the AIA’s commercial Design-Build Family of documents.
