AIA has released new versions of their documents. The B161 (formerly the B611 INT-2002) has been updated!
This document was re-numbered only in 2007; its content remains the same as in B611 INT–2002. It is intended to help U.S. architects hired on a consulting basis for design services for projects that are taking place in foreign countries, and where the owner will retain a local architect.
The term Owner has been replaced with Client throughout the document in order to better coincide with foreign practices. Additionally, the term Consultant is used throughout the document to refer to the U.S. architect since the architect is not licensed to practice architecture in the foreign country.
The document serves to better clarify the assumptions, roles, responsibilities, and obligations of the parties involved; to provide a clear, narrative description of services; and to facilitate, strengthen, and maintain the working and contractual relationship between the parties.Please note that in order to preserve document authenticity, Construction Book Express does not offer downloadable AIA forms. Construction Book Express will ship original paper AIA documents only.
