Program Materials

This CLE webinar will explain critical modifications to the AIA Construction Contracts Documents, released in 2017. The panel will devote significant attention to the creation of the Insurance and Bonds Exhibit.

Description

AIA contract documents are the industry standard for managing contractual relationships in construction and design projects. The AIA released the most recent revisions of its contract documents in April 2017.

Revisions to the Owner-Contractor Documents include changes to termination provisions and changes to financing and payment provisions. Revisions to the Owner-Architect Agreements include intellectual property rights, termination provisions, administration/compensation, and the sustainability focus in E204 Exhibit.

A significant revision to the 2017 documents is the Insurance and Bonds Exhibit to be used with the A101-2017, A102-2017 and A103-2017, and with the revised Insurance and Bonds provision of A201-2017. These revisions acknowledge the complex nature of construction project insurance and are intended to focus on insurance and risk mitigation in contract negotiations.

Listen as our authoritative panel of construction attorneys walks you through the most significant modifications of the AIA Contract Documents released in 2017. The panel will also focus on the creation of the new Insurance and Bonds Exhibit intended to ensure that insurance and risk mitigation become an integral part of the contract negotiation process.
