AIA Paves the Way for Sustainable Projects

"The construction manager as adviser and construction manager as constructor delivery models are beneficial for sustainable projects," says Ken Cobleigh, managing director and counsel at the American Institute of Architects (AIA). "The construction manager's involvement in the early stages of the project results in collaboration between the owner, the architect and the construction manager in the development of the owner's sustainable objective, and in the development of the measures they will take toward achieving that objective."

With this in mind, the AIA has released seven new Sustainable Projects (SP) contract documents. The release includes SP versions of AIA's two families of Construction Management documents, Construction Manager as Adviser (CMa) and Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc), as well as B103™-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Large or Complex Sustainable Project. B103-2007 SP is an agreement between the owner and architect that is specifically developed for use on large or complex sustainable projects. It is written for use in the design-bidbuild delivery model, but can be modified for use on CMc projects.

The seven new documents include:
