Breaking Down B101 Agreements – Webinar Slides

Posted on: January 21, 2022 by Professional Underwriters Agency

Design professionals often use form contracts from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) — but do they fully understand the AIA B101™ 2017 Agreement between Owner and Architect? The B101 Owner-Architect Agreement is the standard form of agreement between Owner and Architect for services and it’s critical to understand the terms and conditions.

This webinar, in partnership with J. Kent Holland of Construction Risk, will provide a comprehensive overview of the B101 Owner-Architect Agreement and provide useful information for design professionals using AIA form contracts — as well as ideas for wording to use in other types of design professional contracts to help mitigate risks.
