B203-2017 Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Site Evaluation and Project Feasibility

AIA Document B203™–2017 replaces AIA Document B203™-2007, Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Site Evaluation and Planning. An owner can use the services provided by the architect in B203 to decide whether a site, or sites, are suitable for a project, or to determine the development potential of a site. B203 includes a menu of services an architect can provide, such as conducting a site evaluation, identifying environmental requirements, evaluating existing buildings, and providing conceptual drawings for potential development. B203 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™–2017, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B203 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement.
