B305-1993 (formerly B431-1993), Architect Qualification Statement The AIA family of forms is classified in alphabetical order. The two most common categories are Series A contracts, known as property and contracting contracts, and Series B contracts, called property and architect contracts. A503-2007 (formerly A511-1999), Guide to Additional Conditions The AIA has issued construction documents for more than 100 years. Today, the AIA has nearly 200 forms and contracts that are used in the construction industry, and they are generally updated every ten years. While these formal contracts are common in the commercial construction sector, they are less common in the housing sector and in small projects. However, the AIA has issued several form contracts specifically designed for the use of less complex construction contracts. B108-2009 (formerly B181-1994), standard form of agreement between owner and architect for a federal or insured federal project While the owner-contractor, A-Series, contracts often seem relatively short because most of them contain 40 pages more with general terms, their length is misleading. The AIA has a long form of general conditions, the A201, which defines the rights, responsibilities and relationships of the owner, contractor and architect. After choosing the right shape, it is important to remember that the AIA family of documents has constraints from the point of view of a contractor. This form of AIA contracts, without amendments, does not comply with Texas housing legislation and does not correspond to all projects.

Although the AIA A105 and B105 documents have similarities to other AIA agreements, the Small Projects family should not be used with other AIA families without careful comparison of content. The A104 is considered an abbreviated form agreement, as it is a stand-alone agreement that does not require the use of a separate adoption document. When the owner and contractor choose one of the two cost-plus payment methods, the parties must complete an A-exposure to the A104, which provides details of the cost of the project. A104-2017 (formerly A107-2007), standard type of contract abbreviated between owner and contractor The use of the A104 is the B104. The AIA`s A105 document is intended for smaller projects, modest in terms of size and short duration, for which payment to the contractor is based on a fixed price. Like the A104, the A105 is a stand-alone agreement that contains its own framework conditions. If the AIA A105 is used, the B105 is the appropriate agreement between the owner and the architect. G736-2009 (formerly G722CMa-1992), project application and project certificate for means of payment, Site Manager as Advisor Edition B503-2007 (formerly B511-2001), Change Guide AIA owner-architect agreements C203-2017 (ex-B211-2007), standard form of the consulting service: commissioning G705-2001 (formerly G805-2001), list of subcontractors, The AIA proposes a number of agreements to form internal conditions and do not contain the cumbersome A201. Three of these short contracts are the A104, A105 and A145 A251-2007 (formerly A275ID-2003), the terms and conditions of the AIA Document B105™-2017 contract is a standard short agreement between the owner and the architect. B105-2017 is used in a project that is modest in size and short in duration.
