A251-2007 (formerly A275ID-2003), Terms and Conditions of the Furniture, Furniture and Equipment Contract The AIA has issued construction documents for more than 100 years. Today, the AIA has nearly 200 forms and contracts that are used in the construction industry, and they are generally updated every ten years. While these formal contracts are common in the commercial construction sector, they are less common in the housing sector and in small projects.

A104-2017 (formerly A107-2007), Standard type of contract between owner and contractor After choosing the correct form, it is important to remember that the AIA family of documents has constraints from the point of view of a contractor.
