Architect Duties and Additional Services
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract document B101 outlines the responsibilities of the architect in a construction project. The document provides a comprehensive guide to the duties and additional services that an architect may provide to ensure the success of a construction project. The architect’s role in project completion is crucial and includes conducting inspections, issuing certificates of substantial and final completion, and ensuring the work complies with the contract documents. The B101 document also outlines additional services that the architect may provide, including programming, multiple preliminary designs, measured drawings, existing facilities surveys, site evaluation and planning, building information modeling, civil engineering, landscape design, architectural interior design, and many others. These services are listed with their descriptions, type, and corresponding AIA Document Reference (if applicable) in a table, providing a comprehensive overview of the services offered in the field of architecture.
