The American Institute of Architects has published a new owner/consultant agreement, and several new design-build project forms.  The first new document is the C103-2015, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Consultant without a Predefined Scope of Consultant's Services.  This agreement covers, among other topics, scope, compensation, treatment of copyrights and licenses, claims, dispute resolution, suspension, and termination.

The AIA has added six Design-Build forms:

G741-2015, Change Order for a Design-Build Project

G742C-2015, Application and Certificate for Payment for a Design-Build Project, Contractor Variation

G742S-2015, Application and Certificate for Payment for a Design-Build Project, Subcontractor Variation
