AIA 163 - Standard Form of Agreement: Owner & Architect (For Designated Services)
DescriptionAIA 163 - Standard Form of Agreement: Owner & Architect (For Designated Services) by AIA.
B163-1993 is the most comprehensive AIA owner-architect agreement. B1631993 is discontinued and will be available only until May 31, 2009. This three-part document contains a thorough list of 83 possible services divided among nine phases, covering pre-design through supplemental services. This detailed classification allows the architect to estimate more accurately the time and personnel costs required for a particular project.
Owner and architect benefit from the ability to establish clearly the scope of services required for the project as responsibilities and compensation issues are negotiated and defined. The architect's compensation may be calculated on a time/cost basis through use of the worksheet provided in the instructions to B163.Part One of the document deals with variables typical of many owner-architect agreements, such as compensation and scope of services. The scope of services is delimited through use of a matrix that allows the parties to designate their agreed-upon services and responsibilities.
Part Two contains detailed descriptions of the specific services found in Part One's matrix.
Part Three contains general descriptions of the parties' duties and responsibilities. The list of services for B163 has been expanded beyond those of any of its predecessor documents through inclusion of construction management and interiors services.
