Like A121CMc1991, this CM is intended to be used as a contractor contract if the owner is looking for a site manager who assumes responsibility for the provision of construction resources and methods. However, in A131CMc2003, the site manager does not provide a guaranteed maximum price (GMP). A131CMc2003 uses the cost-plus-a-fee method, which allows the owner to monitor costs by regularly checking a control estimate that will be revised during the project. One of the updated CMa documents is the owner/contracting A132 contract with the new insurance and bond exposure. An exhibition on sustainable projects, E235-2019, was also designed to take into account the role of CMa in the pre-construction phase and in the construction phase of a sustainable project. It is coordinated with B801/CMA-1992, an owner-manager/consultant in which the site manager is an independent professional advisor to the owner throughout the project. B141/CMA and B801/CMA are both based on the premise that a separate contractor will also enter into a contract with the owner. The owner-contracting agreement is jointly managed by the architect and site manager according to A201/CMA, 1992. B141/CMA is a standard agreement between the owner and the architect for the use of projects for which construction management services must be provided under a separate contract with the owner. AIA Contract Documents are the nearly 200 forms and contracts that define the relationships and conditions associated with design and construction projects. Prepared by the AIA under the consensus of owners, contractors, lawyers, architects, engineers and others, the documents have been finely voted on during its 131-year history. As a result, these complete contracts and forms are now widely recognized as industry standards.
AIA contract documents are categorized into two categories by all professionals in the sector, including architects, contractors, owners, consultants and lawyers: by family, by type of project or certain methods of project preparation, and by series based on the parties to the agreement or use of the form. See you aiacontracts.org. The five AIA contractual documents of the CMa family, which include the owner`s agreement with the contractor, are summarized briefly below. The agreement divides the site manager`s performance into two phases: the pre-construction phase and the construction phase, parts of which can be continued simultaneously to speed up the process. A131CMc2003 is coordinated for use with A2011997, Terms and Conditions of the Construction Contract, and B1511997, standard form of the agreement between owner and architect.
