In these standard form contracts, there are many voids to fill out with details such as the price of the contract, which move from one project to another. Once these gaps are filled, the rest of the contract, as written by the AIA, focuses on the rights and responsibilities of the parties, the details of contract management and how the project is handled on the ground. These terms — which have been defined and do not contain voids — can be changed, but careful consideration should be taken into account in this decision. If a contractor or other construction professional changes much of the terms of the AIA contract, this may indicate that the AIA contract is not suitable for that person or project. The CMcs will be set up at the beginning of the pre-construction phase of a project to provide cooperation and input, which will allow for greater efficiency from the start of the project. They also do the construction. The AIA Documents Committee received input from representatives of CMc`s large companies to update CMc documents.
Significant changes to CMc documents include greater flexibility in the implementation of the CMc`s pre-construction phase services and a provision allowing parties to agree to the commissioning of part of the work prior to the maximum guaranteed price (GMP) amendment. Documents A133 and A134 each have a new issue of insurance and bonds. In addition, an exhibition of sustainable projects, E234-2019, was designed to integrate the CMc into a sustainable project. For the updated CMa, the updated C132 offers different opportunities and positions of responsibility than its predecessor, the C132-2009. Changes involve things like coordination, costs and timing, the payment process, document retention and the method of several key contractors for project delivery. Note that the specific language on CMa rights and obligation documents can be found with the C132-2019, including the specific terms and conditions CMa, A232-2019, and the owner`s agreements with the architect, B132-2019, and contractor, A132-2019.
