B205-2017 Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Historic Preservation

AIA Document B205™–2017 replaces AIA Document B205™-2007, Standard Form of Architect’s Services: Historic Preservation. B205 establishes duties and responsibilities where the architect provides services for projects that are historically sensitive. The range of services the architect provides under this scope can span the life of the project and may require the architect to be responsible for preliminary surveys, applications for tax incentives, nominations for landmark status, analysis of historic finishes, and other services specific to historic preservation projects. B205 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 document, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™–2017, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B205–2017 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement.

When to use

  • Conventional scope of architect services
  • To be attached to an owner/architect agreement
