Streamline Your Projects and Your Negotiations

Architects across the nation depend on AIA Contract Documents because they are a vital business tool, helping you minimize risk and maximize efficiency. You can rely on our documents to outline your role throughout the entire project, establish a clear scope, and protect your business interests. AIA understands that an architect’s role in a building project goes well beyond the design phase. AIA’s agreements give clear, concise descriptions of an architect’s scope of work that preclude disagreements and delays. Our cutting-edge Sustainable Projects and BIM documents are the most trusted agreements of their kind on the market, and our General Conditions remain the keystone to large projects nationwide.

The trust of professionals like you is what makes AIA Contract Documents The Industry Standard.

Time-tested Risk Protection

Backed by over a century of case law and precedent, our agreements protect architects from the risk of potentially ruinous consequential damages that may arise during a project.

Preserving Intellectual Property

AIA Contract Documents view an architect’s unique designs and schematics as their intellectual property. Using our agreements ensures you protect what is yours.

Project-specific Documents

Choose the appropriate contract for your project type or delivery method – conventional, sustainable, small projects, design-build, program management, and more.
