Contractors and Subcontractors

Reduce Risk with a Solid Contract

AIA Contract Documents aren’t just for architects. Contractors and subcontractors choose AIA Contract Documents because our agreements and forms are time-tested and proven to minimize risk for every type of project. Crafted to meet the needs of all parties involved, our contracts are designed to reflect current legal rulings and building practices.  

Don’t Rely on a Handshake as a Contract

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

Get Paid on Time

Our pre-drafted contracts reduce the risk of you not getting paid for work completed by addressing the project’s terms and conditions and  roles and responsibilities.

Project-specific Documents

Choose the appropriate contract for your project size and project type including fixed-price, cost-plus, and design-build.

“I always recommend using an AIA Contract. It itemizes the complete scope of work, materials, & installation costs… that’s why the AIA Contract is brilliant, because it really protects you.” -John DeSilvia, Licensed Contractor, Host of DIY's 10 Grand in Your Pocket and Rescue My Renovation
