Even though we were developing a small project by anyone's standards, we had little room for error due to the involvement of multiple stakeholders. We wanted to ensure our contract had provisions for management of problems to allow us to administer our project successfully, and avoid second guessing from our constituents. quotation marks

Learn more about how Lane used AIA Contract Documents on the Center for Architecture and Design in Central Ohio.

If given the choice, Iíve always used AIA Contract Documents because they are the most widely used, well-understood and fairest standard-form documents. They are viewed as being the most balanced industry-form documents, and even those parties who choose to create their own agreements often base their versions on the AIA documents. Most owners do feel that AIA Contract Documents are the fairest starting points for their projects, and that they greatly facilitate the negotiation and execution of their agreements.

One key factor in using AIA Contract Documents is that they are the most court-tested documents out there. As such, people have a high confidence level that what the documents say is what they mean.

Timothy R. Twomey, Esq., FAIA Vice President & Deputy General Counsel
RTKL Associates Inc., Baltimore MD

I always recommend using an AIA Contract. It itemizes the complete scope of work, materials, & installation costs… that’s why the AIA Contract is brilliant, because it really protects you.
