When Disaster Strikes: How do AIA Contract Documents address COVID-19 issues?


Friday, March 27, 2020 | 12-1:30 pm ET | Free Webinar

For the foreseeable future, the design and construction industry may experience considerable disruptions, such as material shortages, construction delays, work stoppages, and projects that are deferred due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Join us for a free webinar as expert presenters explore contract provisions regarding project delays, extensions, suspension and termination, payment, dispute resolution, and insurance.

Attendees will:
  • Learn about Force Majeure, a French term, literally translating to “a superior force” and how the AIA’s various agreements allocate these types of risks, including disruptions, materials shortages, delays, and other issues.

  • Explore the roles and responsibilities of the project team members. Learn the importance of effective contract documents and communication among project members in order to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

  • Review A201®️-2017, General Conditions of the Construction Contract and B101™️-2017, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect to examine standard of care provisions, services, evaluations of the work, and more.

  • Become familiar with other AIA Contract Documents forms, resources, guides, and opportunities for additional learning.

*Submit your questions prior to the webinar to hastihejazi@aia.org . We will try to answer as many questions as possible during the Q&A at the end of the webinar. Also, please note that the webinar capacity is 1,000. If you are not able to get into the live webinar, still register as we will email all registrants the recorded version of the webinar once available.
