AIA Contract Documents comprise over 180 forms and contracts that define relationships and terms involved in design and construction projects. Prepared by the AIA with the consensus of owners, contractors, attorneys, architects, engineers, and others, the documents have been finely tuned over AIA's long history. As a result, these comprehensive contracts and forms are now widely recognized as the industry standard.
Changes and developments in the building industry sometimes necessitate drafting new contract documents and revising existing ones. When doing so, the AIA abides by certain Drafting Principles and follows a Revision Policy to ensure that AIA Contract Documents maintain consistently high standards while still adapting to current trends and practices.
Our contract documents are recognized throughout the design and construction industry as the benchmark for managing transactions and relationships involved in construction projects.
