Members are entitled to a 10% discount on individual contract purchases and a 20% discount on a complete set of DBIA documents.

The DBIA family of contractual forms have been in use for over a decade and were completely updated and revised in 2010. A standard form Teaming Agreement and Design Sub-Consultant agreement were added in March of 2012. DBIA documents allow for quick and economical customization by the parties. DBIA forms encourage DBIA best practices by:

 

  • Using plain language.
  • Recognizing the need for flexibility, by providing parties with alternative language within the document
  • Allocating risk to the participant best able to manage it in the most cost effective manner.
  • Addressing scope of work within a comprehensive framework that ensures owner and design-builder expectations are closely aligned.

The owner’s use of prescriptive specifications in project criteria is dealt with in a manner consistent with recent case law. Moreover, exhibits pertaining to sustainable design, building information modeling and electronic data handling round out this new edition of DBIA Contract Documents.

Members must enter the following codes when placing an order to receive the discounts above, which DBIA will verify against the approved ABC member list:
