AIA Contract Documents

More than 100 forms and contracts comprise AIA Contract Documents. These forms and contracts define the 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 during their 120-year history. As a result, these comprehensive contracts and forms are now widely recognized as the industry standard.
