About the Book

A topic-by-topic comparison of the forms of agreements from the AIA, the EJCDC, and ConsensusDOCS.

Most construction lawyers are familiar with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) forms of agreements, and the newer ConsensusDOCS forms. The ConsensusDocs forms replace many of the forms previously issued by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

Now completely revised, this invaluable resource offers a topic-by-topic comparison of these forms by providing:
  • An easy-reference guide to how the AIA, ConsensusDOCS and EJCDC forms treat the most significant issues in owner/contractor/subcontractor and owner/design professional agreements
  • Proposed alternative language for situations where the form contract approach may not provide the best solution
  • List comparing the most significant provisions from each of these forms (on the CD-ROM)
Each chapter is organized by a topic that is addressed in each of the AIA, ConsensusDOCS and EJCDC owner/contractor/subcontractor or owner/design professional agreements. Chapters are then broken down into three sections. The first section provides general background about the topic, identifying in summary format the critical issues involved with that particular topic. The second section describes the relevant contract provisions in the form contracts that address the topic and compares them to one another. The book's final part provides alternative clauses for the practitioner to consider in addressing the topic at hand.
