“Revised and New AIA Contract Documents: Owner-Architect Agreements & Sustainable Design and Construction” was presented at the A’17 MN Conference on November 17, 2017. The program was recorded and is now being made available through AIA Minnesota as an on-demand webinar.

Seminar description

AIA Documents B101, B103 and other key Owner–Architect Agreements have just been revised. Participants will leave this session with an understanding of the 2017 revisions to the Owner- Architect agreements. Participants will be prepared to select appropriate AIA contracts for their particular project and practice, as well as evaluate the suitability of alternative contract terms and language. Lastly, this program will discuss the new Sustainable Projects Exhibit (E204-2017) and explore how it can be used to provide a positive impact on the health and safety of building occupants. 

Presenters are Thomas Hysell, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, principal, Alliance; Andrew Mendelson, FAIA, chief risk management officer, Berkley Design Professional; and Patrick J. O’Connor, Jr. LEED AP, partner, Faegre Baker Daniels, LLP. All three served on the national AIA Documents Committee.
