Contractors and owners used to the pre-2007 AIA document forms should know that the AIA has revised its most popular forms and that the AIA software no longer supports the older versions. You may still see the older forms in Word or similar formats, but you won’t be seeing the official AIA document that automatically highlights changes from the official forms. That means you need to be more cautious about form contracts you receive that appear to be based on the older AIA forms. Changes from the official AIA versions won’t necessarily be highlighted. Construction lawyers have mixed feelings about the new AIA forms. They correct some provisions that didn’t work well in the past, but create some new concerns. As always, you need to consider the specific circumstances of your project before using any standard form contract.
