Instructions: G735™ – 2021, Authorization to Proceed with Early Release Work

Synopsis.

AIA Document G735-2021, Authorization to Proceed with Early Release Work is an authorization, agreed upon between the Owner and Construction Manager as Constructor, that allows the construction manager to begin construction on a smaller, predetermined portion of the project before the parties come to an agreement upon the Guaranteed Maximum Price or Control Estimate for the entire work of the project. AIA Document G735-2021 is specifically tailored for use with AIA Document A133™-2019, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Construction Manager as Constructor where the basis of payment is the Cost of the Work Plus a Fee with a Guaranteed Maximum Price and AIA Document A134™-2019, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Construction Manager as Constructor where the basis of payment is the Cost of the Work Plus a Fee without a Guaranteed Maximum Price. 

G735-2021 commences the Construction Phase of the project only for the early release work and allows the owner and CMc to define the scope, schedule, and compensation. G735-2021 also allows the parties to negotiate requirements for insurance and bonds for this early release work.
