AIA Documents / Contracts Review

  • NC AIA Center for Architecture and Design 14 E Peace St Raleigh, NC, 27604 United States

April  11th   |   1/2 day session    |    Cost: $20 ($50 non-AIA members)

The exam will ask specific questions about key AIA contracts but also general questions about situations governed by a wide range of industry documents.   Take a guided walk through the relevant material.  Don't memorize facts when you listen to related stories and develop an understanding of their purpose behind the agreements.  This seminar will help prepare you for situation-based exam questions that require critical thought about the subject matter by providing helpful (and memorable) hypothetical examples of how these senarios play out.

Topics covered: AIA documents (A201, B101, C401, A101, A701, G701,  G702, G704, G714 and others), change orders, bonds, insurance, payment methods, deliver methods and more.

Please come having listened to the Schiff Harden Lectures on the A201 and B101.
Bring your laptop with a finished solution for the Building Section Vignette if you want to workshop your solution with other participants following the event.
