AIA To Release New and Updated Documents
October 11, 2010

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently announced that it will release new and updated documents for regional or urban planning, single-family, and mixed-use residential projects. These documents address the unique requirements of urban planning, single family residential development, and multi-family and mixed-use residential projects.

According to the National Association of Home Builders it will be necessary to build more than a million housing units each year to meet the underlying needs of the nation’s population and, over the next decade, the rate of new household formations is expected to average at least 1.4 million a year. Moreover, it will be necessary and desirable to replace some of the existing 125 million housing units in the U.S. with housing that is more energy efficient and otherwise built to modern standards.

“The AIA Contract Documents Committee understands and supports the shift toward effective regional and urban planning, and mixed use and residential project development,” said Ken Cobleigh, Managing Director and Counsel for the AIA Contract Documents content team. “We have updated and created these documents to provide a framework that clearly delineates the roles and responsibilities of parties involved in these projects.”
