Architects are required, in accordance with AIBC Statutes 28.0 and 28.1, to ensure that an executed written contract exists for a client before the start of work. This architecture service contract must be a standard form contract approved by the AIBC Board, or on the basis of a standard contract for services, responsibilities and terms and conditions. Coverage, table of contents, contract form, definitions and terms and conditions are available in PDF format with filled out forms fields. The agreement part of the PDF form is also provided in the form of an MS Word document. However, users are advised NOT to change the text of the contract form. The MS Word version is provided to allow users to expand form fields if necessary. Document Nine, 2018 Edition replaces document Nine, 2007 (now obsolete). AiBC Authorization Stickers and CCDC Electronic Documents and copyright stickers can be ordered from AIBC. Orders are accepted by mail, email, phone or in person.
Remember: an authorization sticker is required for each contracting party. Therefore, you must have at least two per contract (except CCDC 9).

If changes to the contract form, definitions or terms and conditions of a typical RAIC contract are required, this should be done using additional conditions.
The addition of additional conditions is an acceptable way to tailor the responsibilities of both parties to the specific conditions of the project. Additional conditions can be described, for example. B, the need for a security clearance or background check to work in certain facilities. Additional conditions should not be used to change the fundamental responsibilities of one of the parties or to transfer the risks to a party that cannot cope with that risk. The most practical way to change the contract is to cross the corresponding section and take a note that refers to the additional condition that replaces the barred section. CCDC 15 also contains a calendar listing the typical additional design services that the advisor may have to provide. . Based on an approach similar to that of standard client-consultant contracts (i.e.
RAIC Document Six and ACEC 31), CCDC 15 lists all basic design services deemed necessary in a design contract.
