AIA Contract Documents

The American Institute of Architects (“AIA”) publishes more than 120 contracts and administrative forms that are recognized throughout the design and construction industry as documents for managing transactions and relationships involved in construction projects. AIA documents are grouped by family and by series. Documents in the same family are coordinated to tie together the various legal and working relationships on the same project types or delivery methods. They are linked by common terminology and procedures and may also adopt one another by reference. Documents in each series reflect the purpose of the document. For example, owner/contractor agreements are found in the A series.
