The American Institute of Architects Posts Updated Digital Practice Documents For Public Comment
The AIA Contract Documents® program is updating its
documents for use on construction projects involving digital data
or BIM, and will make a draft of these Digital Practice documents
available for public review and comment.
During this unique public comment period, the documents
will be available for review through the AIA Contract Documents
website. Users will be able to download the documents and will be
asked to complete a simple survey. They will also be given the
opportunity to provide detailed comments on a section-by-section
basis, if they so desire.
The updated Digital Practice documents will create a
project-wide process and related protocols for working with BIM,
and for the exchange and management of other digital data. They
will also help prompt project participants to discuss and address
many issues that may arise throughout a project and thereby reduce
barriers that often hinder BIM adoption.
Currently, the updated Digital Practice documents consist of:
- AIA Document E203™-2012, Building Information Modeling and
Digital Data Exhibit
- AIA Document G201™-2012, Project Digital Data Protocol
- AIA Document G202™-2012, Project Building Information
Modeling Protocol Form
Drafts of these documents will be available for download and
public comment on August 15. The public comment period will close
on September 24. In addition, a commentary and guide to help
explain the updated documents will also be available for download.
Following the open comment period, the AIA Contract Documents
Committee will review the feedback and incorporate suggested
changes, if appropriate. Please visit www.aia.org/digitaldocs
to download the documents.
