Course Materials

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


AIA Contract Documents are the industry standard for managing contractual relationships in construction and design projects.

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

The last significant revisions to the AIA documents focused on 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 acknowledged the complex nature of construction project insurance and were intended to focus on insurance and risk mitigation in contract negotiations.

Listen as our authoritative panel of construction attorneys walks you through the most recent and significant modifications of the AIA Contract Documents. 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.
