Seminar Overview

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced, at their A’17 Conference on Architecture, the release of the 2017 edition of the A201 family of documents. This release includes updated versions of the AIA’s flagship documents (including the “A”, “B”, “C” & “E” Series), developed for the design-bid-build delivery model. Working with architects, contractors, subcontractors and owners, the AIA Documents Committee updates this core set of documents every 10 years. 

This seminar offers attendees the unique opportunity to learn about what changes have been made to the AIA Documents, the reasons for the changes, and the advantages and costs of using the new AIA forms.  Attendees will also learn about important notice requirements, drafting tips, regulatory concerns, the effective use of alternative dispute resolution procedures, and practical problems impacting construction projects; all of which needs to be considered when drafting AIA contracts.

Please plan to join Joe Dinardo of Smith Currie & Hancock LLP, along with an outstanding faculty as we examine the changes and impact of these important documents.
