AIA Contract Documents are hardly just for architects. The first contract the AIA ever drafted, in 1888, was an owner-contractor agreement. The AIA has remained committed to providing contractors and sub-contractors with a wide variety of the highest quality forms and agreements ever since. More contractors than any other profession choose AIA Contract Documents because our agreements and forms are the most widely accepted and trusted in the industry. Our A401-2007 Contractor-Subcontractor Agreement is favored by contractors and subcontractors alike because it clearly establishes the scope of work for all parties in a fair and balanced agreement. From convenient payment forms like the G702 to agreements that are agreeable by all parties like the A201-2007 General Conditions, an AIA Contract Document speeds negotiations and helps prevent conflicts, so you can focus on your project, not your potential for liability.
Time-Tested Risk Protection
AIA Contract Documents have been the Industry Standard since the late 1800s. Backed by over a century of case law and precedent, our documents are tested and proven to minimize risk for every type of project. Relying on a handshake or a non-standardized agreement leaves you extremely vulnerable, doesn’t hold up in court, and can be disastrous for your business. AIA Contract Documents provide the protection you need for your projects and help ensure that you don’t get burned by a bad contract or a dishonest client.
Flexible and Affordable
With our new AIA Documents-on-Demand® Plus purchase option, contractors have more flexibility than ever before. Now, for the first time, we offer the ability to purchase one-at-a-time, fully-editable documents that can be amended to fit your project's specifications. You can change legal language, add and save custom clauses unique to your business, and share documents for review via email. When the need for a change order suddenly arises, contractors can buy a G701-2001 on the spot, fill it out online, and finalize it for signatures within minutes. AIA Contract Documents give you the freedom to work on your terms.
