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.

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.

As the firmís Managing Director and a Co-Chair of its A/E Practice group, Iíve chosen to use the AIA Contract Document set for several reasons. When you prepare your own agreements, or use agreements drafted by others, potential internal inconsistency is a big problemóespecially on complex projects. AIA Contract Documents have substantially reduced that risk. All of the documents are based on the same clear, well-understood terminology and are coordinated and internally consistent. They have become the industry standard, and because they solicit input from owner and contractor groups and other groups of design professionals, they are among the most complete and even-handed documents you can find.
