With issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has provided an online webinar to inform businesses on how provisions included in AIA contract documents can help address these issues.
This webinar, led by two AIA attorneys, focuses on two specific AIA contract documents, A201®-2017, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction and the B101™-2017, Owner/Architect Agreement. The webinar covers other topics like how AIA contracts can address project delays, extensions, suspension, termination, payment and dispute resolution.
Businesses in the design and construction industry have been reporting disruptions including work stoppages, workforce deficits, project cancellations and many other shortfalls which are discussed in the webinar.
You can access the webinar for free on AIA’s YouTube. Additional information regarding how AIA contract documents can address disruptions resulting from Covid-19 can be found on the AIA Contract Documents website.
