Risk Allocation: What AIA's New Standard Form Agreements Say

August 2, 2017
Richard Korman - Engineering News-Record

As the managing director of the American Institute of Architect's Contract Documents program, Ken Cobleigh was responsible for the once-per-decade review-and-rewriting process that culminated in the release in April 2017 of the updated A201—the General Conditions for the Contract for Construction—and other related contract documents. The changes reflect in many ways the fast-changing methods of design and construction, including contract exhibits related to building-information modeling, sustainability and insurance. Cobleigh, who studied law at the University of Maryland, was a construction litigation attorney before joining AIA 11 years ago. He spoke with Deputy Editor Richard Korman about the new insurance exhibit and other matters related to the new AIA standard form agreements and risk allocation.
