AIA Publishes Updated Construction Manager Constructor Agreement


On April 30, the American Institute of Architects published new document

A133, Standard Form of Agreement between Owner and Construction

Manager as Constructor, where the basis of payment is the cost of the work

plus a fee with a guaranteed maximum price, which replaced the A121 CMc

2003 edition. Unlike the 2003 edition, the new Construction Manager

Agreement is compatible with the 2007 version of the A201 General

Conditions. It is also compatible with the B103, 2007 edition, Agreement

Between Owner and Architect for a Large or Complex Project. If you are

licensed to use the AIA software program, you will have to learn to use the

A133 because AIA will not support the A121 CMc after May 31, 2010. Ober|Kaler's Paul S. Sugar looks at the new agreement.
