How AIA Contracts Address COVID-Related Disruptions 

A Practical Guide for Architects 


Monday, January 11, 2021   |   1-2 pm ET   |   Free webinar

The design and construction industry has experienced considerable disruptions, such as material shortages, construction delays, work stoppages, and projects that are deferred due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  
How can you address these issues in your practice and in your design agreements? Join us for a free webinar to learn how these issues are handled in AIA’s most used documents.  Hear from design practitioners on how COVID-19 has affected their practice in regards to standard of care, evaluations of the work, additional services, owner suspensions and terminations, and more. 

Attendees will:

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

• Hear from design practitioners on how their practice has been impacted by COVID-19 and what changes or special accommodations they have made.  

• Examine owner suspensions and termination provisions and hear how other architects are navigating these scenarios.  

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