Insome commentators pointed out that they thought there was a mistake in the AIA A, which provides a complete warranty for the Work to include both the design and construction of a project. Therefore, the design-builder appears to be left with all of the risk of giving a warranty that is both elevated beyond the standard of care and uninsurable. In contrast, the architect is protected with the ordinary and lower professional standard of care. Considering that a core value of publishing standard construction contract documents is to provide predictability and consistency, this inconsistent treatment of risk is quite surprising.
Consequently, the design-build agreements contain many of the same objections, mostly notably a failure to allow the request of project financial information without a special showing once dirt is moved. An owner can rely upon these certifications and can use any information in these certifications against the design-builder.
Is this an extra layer intended to create a trap for the design-builder and owner? AIA generally takes 10 years to update their standard documents and this edition sticks to this long established tradition.
Significantly, AIA keeps flip-flopping how many parts their design-build documents should include. Beforeit had two parts, and then in it was one part, which locked an owner early in the process, and now as revised init is back to two parts.
Unlike other standard design-build documents, AIA only has one contract agreement with a menu aka either a lump sum design-build project or cost of the work with a GMP.
Since the development of design documents and approvals, as well as cost provisions including fees, are significantly different in different project cost arraignments, this one size fits all approach is not favored.

AGC, along with 40 other construction organizations, write and endorse ConsensusDocs.
