“The Construction Manager as Adviser and Construction Manager as Constructor delivery models are beneficial for sustainable projects. The construction manager’s involvement in the early stages of the project results in collaboration between the owner, the architect, and the construction manager in the development of the owner’s sustainable objective, and in the development of the measures they will take toward achieving that objective” said Ken Cobleigh, Managing Director and Counsel at the AIA.

B103–2007 SP is an agreement between Owner and Architect that is specifically developed for use on large or complex sustainable projects. It is written for use in the design-bid-build delivery model; however, and with some modification, it is also well suited for use on CMc projects.

The seven new documents include:
