History of Contract Documents
AIA Contract Documents comprise over 80 forms and contracts that define relationships and terms involved in design and construction projects. Prepared by the AIA with the consensus of owners, contractors, attorneys, architects, engineers, and others, the documents have been finely tuned during their 115 year history. As a result, these comprehensive contracts and forms are now widely recognized as the industry standard.

Changes and developments in the building industry sometimes necessitate drafting new contract documents and revising existing ones. When doing so, the AIA abides by certain Drafting Principles and follows a Revision Policy to ensure that AIA Contract Documents maintain consistently high standards while still adapting to current trends and practices.

Documents Organization
The AIA organizes contract documents by two methods. The first method groups documents by 'families' based on types of projects or particular project delivery methods. The second method groups documents by 'series' based on the use of the document. Click here to view AIA Contract Documents Relationship Diagram.
