This course will provide a detailed review of AIA Document A201™-2017, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction and discuss the essential information that design professionals need to understand in order to administer the construction project in compliance with the requirements for health, safety, and welfare of the project constituents, project owner and the general public.

A201™-2017 is a keystone document that is used in conjunction with several other AIA contract documents. The A201™-2017 typically applies when owners contract separately with architects and contractors to procure design and construction services. This essential contract document bridges the gap between the owner’s separate contracts with the project’s architect and contractor.

A201™-2017 is a practical guide for design professionals, owners, and contractors, to provide a framework for effective communication and project management for efficient and successful projects. Understanding A201™-2017 can promote successful project outcomes, including satisfied owner expectations and minimized disputes.

In this webinar, you’ll:

  • Explain the contractual relationship among the various construction parties and how the A201™-2017 General Conditions defines the responsibilities, authority, and expectations of each
  • Identify the key duties and obligations of the architect to provide administrative, site observation, and technical review in order to determine general conformance of the construction with the design intent and project quality defined by the contract documents
  • Understand the contractor’s duties to plan, coordinate, and supervise the construction site in order to promote efficient construction delivery in accordance with the statutes, regulations, and proper industry standards of the built project
  • Learn how to utilize the A201 and Sustainable Projects Exhibit as project management tools as well as a guide to better ensure health, safety, and welfare of project participants and the greater public
  • And more…
