B214–2007, Standard Form of Architect’s Services: LEED® Certification
AIA Document B214™–2007 establishes duties and responsibilities when the owner seeks certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®). Among other things, the architect’s services include conducting a pre-design workshop where the LEED rating system will be reviewed and LEED points will be targeted, preparing a LEED certification plan, monitoring the LEED certification process, providing LEED specifications for inclusion in the contract documents and preparing a LEED certification report detailing the LEED rating the project achieved. AIA Document B214–2007 may be used in two ways: (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scope of services documents, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™–2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B214–2007 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement. B214 was revised in 2007 to align, as applicable, with AIA Document B101™–2007. NOTE: B214–2007 replaces AIA Document B214™–2004 (expired May 31, 2009).
