The Announcement of the Decade Safeguard your project with the Industry Standard Like the Agave Americana, the plant that blooms every ten years, the core set of AIA Contract Documents is updated every ten years. This ensures your design and construction projects are protected in light of changing industry trends and needs. Last spring, AIA released the first part of its once-in-a-decade update of certain core agreements including revisions to B105-2017 title changes to better reflect the complexity and risk associated with the specific project, rather than just the type of project. B105-2017 is now "Standard Short Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect" to indicate that it is a short form contract, whereas the previous title "for a Small Commercial or Residential Project," may have suggested that it should be used for a residential project without considering complexity and risk.
