Changes to AIA Contract Documents Seminar
October 10 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
1.5 AIA/HSW LUs available
Earlier this year, the AIA revised many of its standard form contracts that are most frequently used by owners, general contractors and subcontractors. These include the general conditions, some of the basic contract forms between the owner and general contractor, as well as the form subcontract.
It is essential to understand the key changes that are reflected in the most recent version of the AIA documents. This presentation will give a brief overview of which of the key documents have been modified and will focus on some of the more important changes that could impact contractors and subcontractors who use the new forms.
The presentation will also address how the changes benefit certain parties and will provide strategies for how contractors and subcontractors should approach the new provisions when negotiating contracts that utilize the new forms.
The seminar will be held at Open Works, a creative maker-space in Baltimore, from 8 to 10 am. The session will begin promptly at 8:15 am and will include a continental breakfast. There will be time for Q&A just following the presentation.
