Instructions: B207™–2017, Standard Form of Architect’s Services for On-Site Project Representation

Synopsis. 

AIA Document B207–2017 establishes the architect’s scope of services when the architect provides an on-site project representative during a project’s construction phase. B207 provides for agreement on the number of architect’s representatives to be stationed at the project site, a schedule for the on-site representation, and the services that the on-site representative will perform. 

The on-site representative’s services include attending job-site meetings, monitoring the contractor’s construction schedule, observing systems and equipment testing, preparing a log of activities at the site, and maintaining on-site records. The owner will provide an on-site office for the architect’s on-site representative. B207 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement. For all document details and a record of changes, see the summary  »
