A134–2009 (formerly A131CMc–2003), Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Construction Manager as Constructor where the basis of payment is the Cost of the Work Plus a Fee without a Guarantee Maximum Price

In stock



Similar to AIA Document A133ℒ–2009, AIA Document A134ℒ–2009 is intended for use when the owner seeks a construction manager who will take on responsibility for providing the means and methods of construction. However, in AIA Document A134–2009 the construction manager does not provide a guaranteed maximum price (GMP). A134–2009 employs the cost-plus-a-fee method, wherein the owner can monitor cost through periodic review of a control estimate that is revised as the project proceeds.

The agreement divides the construction manager’s services into two phases: the pre-construction phase and the construction phase, portions of which may proceed concurrently in order to fast track the process. A134–2009 is coordinated for use with AIA Documents A201ℒ–2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, and B103ℒ–2007, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect for a Large or Complex Project. A134–2009 replaces AIA Document A131β„’CMc–2003 (expired May 31, 2010).

CAUTION: To avoid confusion and ambiguity, do not use this construction management document with any other AIA construction management document.
