Mixed-use development continues to gain in popularity as it promotes more dynamic and livable communities across the country. And whether you’re the owner or the architect of a mixed-use development, it makes sense to minimize your risks and use a contract that’s designed specifically for mixed-use projects.
The AIA’s B109™–2010 is a pre-drafted, standard form of agreement between owner and architect for building design and construction contract administration for a multi-family residential or mixed use residential project. The agreement includes unique terms and conditions for mixed-use projects like a Pre-Design Services article containing an assessment of project feasibility, layout, and regulatory requirements. If you’re working on a mixed-use project, the AIA’s B109-2010 is the Industry Standard.
For condo projects, consult AIA Document B509™–2010, Guide for Supplementary Conditions to AIA Document B109™–2010, which includes a discussion of potential risks that may be inherent in residential condominium construction and offers model language for inclusion in B109–2010 to better allocate those risks.
