FAQs: 2017 Owner/Architect agreements

AIA Document B101™–2017, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, is the “flagship” 2017 document upon which the other owner-architect agreements are based. B101–2017 is a one-part document that has been designed to replace B101™–2007. 

B101–2017 is the core document on which three other owner-architect agreements are based, each tailored to the complexity of the Project. These agreements are: 

B103™–2017, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Complex Project; 

B104™–2017, Standard Abbreviated Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect; and 

B105™–2017, Standard Short Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect 

For those with a need to combine terms and conditions with a specific scope of services, AIA Document B102™–2017, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect without a Predefined Scope of Architect’s Services, may be used. 

B102 provides agreement terms only and does not provide a scope of Architect’s services. Standard scopes of services that may be paired with B102 include: 

B201, Design, and Construction Contract Administration 

B202, Programming 

B203, Site Evaluation, and Project Feasibility 

B204, Value Analysis 

B205, Historic Preservation 

B207, On-Site Project Representation
