Summary: G711™–2018, Architect’s Field Report





Changes from the previous edition



The architect’s project representative can use this standard form to maintain a concise record of periodic site visits or, in the case of a full-time project representative, a daily log of construction activities. Observations, including known deviations from the Contract Documents and from the most recent construction schedule submitted by the Contractor, as well as defects and deficiencies observed in the Work, align with the Architect’s reporting obligations to the Owner specified in the B101™-2017 Owner-Architect Agreement. Pursuant to that Agreement, the Architect is not required to make exhaustive or continuous on-site inspections to check the quality or quantity of the Work. For use and execution of a document, see its instructions »



AIA Document G711-2018 may be used by the Architect or the Architect’s project representative to record periodic or daily site visits. It is intended to help the Architect or the Architect’s project representative perform the functions described in Section of AIA Document B101-2017, that is, to become generally familiar with the progress and quality of the portion of the Work completed and to determine, in general, if the Work observed is being performed in a manner indicating that the Work, when fully completed, will be in accordance with the Contract Documents. Fill points may be used to create more detailed reports.


Changes from the previous edition. 

G711 now begins with a statement of the intent of this report.

Header. A revised information block identifies the Project, Contract, Owner, Architect, Contractor, and information relevant to site conditions and progress of the Work.

“Percent Complete” was removed.

“Variance from Schedule” was consolidated under “Observations” as a type of contractual deviation that the Architect is to report to the Owner.
