The vast majority of American architects insist on using AIA Contract Documents in all of their projects because they know our agreements and forms are the Industry Standard for minimizing risk and maximizing efficiency. The AIA understands that an architect's role in a building project goes well beyond the design phase. AIA's agreements give clear, concise descriptions of an architect's scope of work that preclude disagreements and delays. Our cutting-edge Sustainable Projects and BIM documents are the most trusted agreements of their kind on the market, and our General Conditions remain the keystone to large projects nationwide.

Time-Tested Risk Protection

AIA Contract Documents have been the Industry Standard since the late 1800s. Backed by over a century of case law and precedent, our agreements continue to protect architects from the risk of potentially ruinous consequential damages that may arise during a project. You can't afford to settle for an inferior document and leave yourself vulnerable.

Flexible and Affordable

With the new AIA Documents-on-Demand® Plus service from AIA Contract Documents, architects have more flexibility than ever before. You can still purchase unlimited software licenses and gain access to the full range of AIA Contract Documents. But now for the first time, you can also use AIA Documents-on-Demand® Plus to buy single-use documents that can be fully edited to your specifications. With single-use documents, you can remove legal costs from your overhead and bill clients directly. Change legal language, add and save custom clauses unique to your business, and share documents for review via email. AIA Contract Documents give you the freedom to work on your terms.

Preserving Intellectual Property

AIA Contract Documents view an architect's unique designs and schematics as their intellectual property. Using our agreements ensures you protect what is yours.
