B105– 2017 Standard Short Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect

AIA Document B105™–2017 is a standard short form of agreement between owner and architect. B105–2017 is for use on a project that is modest in size and brief in duration. B105-2017 replaces AIA Document B105™-2007, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Residential or Small Commercial Project. For larger and more complex projects, other AIA owner/architect agreements are more suitable. AIA Documents B105–2017 and A105™–2017, Standard Short Form of Agreement Between Owner and Contractor, comprise the Small Projects family of documents. B105–2017 is intended for use with A105–2017, which it incorporates by reference. B105 is extremely abbreviated and is formatted more informally than other AIA agreements. Although AIA Documents A105 and B105 share some similarities with other AIA agreements, the Small Projects family should NOT be used with other AIA document families without careful side-by-side comparison of contents.

When to use

  • Small project
  • To be used in conjunction with the A105
