This guide serves two purposes: it provides guidance to assist in preparing the Contract for Construction, and it provides model language that may be used to amend or supplement the Contract for Construction.
AIA Document A232™–2019, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, Construction Manager as Adviser Edition, provides the basic legal framework for the Contract for Construction. Because of variations in the nature of individual projects, requirements of individual owners, and variations in specific legal requirements from locality to locality, a nationally distributed standardized document cannot provide all of the basic requirements which must be included for purposes of bidding or construction.
Project-specific information must be included in one of four locations:
- In the bidding requirements
- In the Owner-Contractor Agreement
- In modifications or supplements to the General Conditions of the Contract for Construction
- In the Specifications, particularly in the General Requirements (Division 1)
