AIA Document B109–2010 is a 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. B109–2010 contains terms and conditions that are unique to these types of projects. B109–2010 is based on AIA Document B103–2007, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Large or Complex Project. AIA Document B109–2010 uses the traditional division of services into Basic and Additional Services but adds a new Pre-Design Services article that includes items such as assessment of project feasibility, layout, and regulatory requirements.
B109–2010 is not intended for use on residential projects that will include a residential condominium unless specifically set forth in the initial information. If B109–2010 is used for residential condominium projects, users should review and consider modifying B109–2010. AIA Document B509–2010, Guide for Supplementary Conditions to AIA Document B109–2010, 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 these risks.
