Newly created in 2004, B142 provides a standard form for the very most upfront services an owner may require when considering design-build delivery. The consultant, who may or may not be an architect or other design professional, may perform a wide ranging array of services for the owner, including programming and planning, budgeting and cost estimating, project criteria development services, and many others, commencing with initial data gathering and continuing through to post occupancy. B142 consists of the Agreement portion and two exhibits, Exhibit A, Initial Information, and Exhibit B, Standard Form of Consultantís Services. The Agreement is modeled after B141-1997 and follows its same general structure except that initial information, including the project parameters and information about the project team, is placed in a separate Exhibit A. The consultantís scope of services is provided in Exhibit B as a menu of briefly described services that the parties can select and augment to suit the needs of the project.
