AIA just released 7 new design-build standard contract documents. In 2004, some commentators pointed out that they thought there was a mistake in the AIA A141, which provides a complete warranty for the Work to include both the design and construction of a project. Unfortunately for design-builders, this risk warranty DOES NOT flow down to the design professional that is likely stamping the design documents (see AIA B143, Section 2.2). Therefore, the design-builder appears to be left with all of the risk of giving a warranty that is both elevated beyond the standard of care and uninsurable. In contrast, the architect is protected with the ordinary and lower professional standard of care.  Considering that a core value of publishing standard construction contract documents is to provide predictability and consistency, this inconsistent treatment of risk is quite surprising.

As of last week, members who have attended certain AGC events, including National Convention, received one of two surveys we have developed that are designed to help us improve future AGC of America Conventions. We understand that attending an Annual Convention requires a significant investment in time and resources and we want to make sure we offer the kind of programming and activities that most appeal to our members.  The intent is to learn more about why some of our most active members chose to attend the convention while other, equally active members, do not attend the convention. The input we receive will help us craft even more effective and appealing convention agendas for the years to come.

This Thursday, Sept. 20, at 2:00 p.m. EST, leading practitioners of Lean Workstructuring will provide their perspectives on how their organizations use Lean Practices – specifically related to Workstructuring – to improve the delivery of projects. The unique perspectives of the three panelists will provide a depth of understanding how these practices can be applied to other organizations.
