AIA Document B212–2010 establishes duties and responsibilities where the architect provides the owner with regional or urban planning services. This scope provides a menu of choices of regional or urban planning services, grouped under four phases: Inventory and Data Gathering; Analysis and Judgment; Preparation of Design Alternatives; and Finalization of Preferred Plan.
AIA Document B212–2010 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™–2017, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B212–2010 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement.
AIA Document B212–2010 provides the Architect’s scope of services for Regional or Urban Planning in a standard form that the Owner and Architect can modify to suit the needs of the Project. It is not a fixed scope of services but is instead a menu of services from which the parties may select. B212–2010 is not a stand-alone document and to become effective it must be incorporated into an owner-architect agreement.
It may be used with AIA Document B102™–2017, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, to provide the Architect’s sole scope of services, or with B102–2017 in conjunction with other standard form services documents. It may also be incorporated into any owner-architect agreement when the agreement is executed or used with AIA Document G802™–2017, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to any owner-architect agreement.
AIA Document B212 provides a table format in which the parties set forth the Architect’s Regional or Urban Planning Services. The Services are grouped under four phases: Inventory and Data Gathering, Analysis, and Judgment Preparation of Design Alternatives, and Finalization of Preferred Plan. The Architect provides only the services that are specifically designated in the list of subsections within each phase. The regional or urban planning services set forth in Article 2 are the activities that should be undertaken by the Architect to produce the final deliverable documents, but the services may not necessarily be performed in the sequence set forth in Article 2 or in an entirely linear manner.
