The American Institute of Architects Releases Customized Kentucky Department of Education Documents

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced the release of customized Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) versions of ten AIA Contract Documents®. The KDE versions of the AIA documents include KDE mandated amendments to the standard text of the AIA documents, and will be used for school construction projects administered by the District Facilities Branch of the Kentucky Department of Education.

The District Facilities Branch of the Kentucky Department of Education began discussing options with AIA to streamline the school construction process in April 2012 as the Capital Construction Process regulation (702 KAR 4:160) underwent an extensive revision. A contract was signed with AIA in February of 2014.

“To meet the goals of the Kentucky Department of Education, including growth, innovation, sustainability and school improvements, we required that AIA Contract Documents be used because they represent a consensus within the construction industry. However, the contract administrator had to manually add the required KDE amendments. Now that the amendments are already included in the KDE versions of the AIA Contract Documents, we streamlined the construction process for the school districts and their construction partners,” said Greg Dunbar, AIA, Manager, District Facilities Branch of the Kentucky Department of Education. There could be additional KDE customized contract documents in the future if KDE incorporates other construction delivery methods into the regulation.

“We are excited to work with the Kentucky Department of Education to help fulfill their need to offer customized documents to be used on KDE projects. With our industry standard contracts, our user-friendly document platform, and the KDE customizations, we feel that the KDE project team members will be well served. We welcome more opportunities to provide customized documents for other state and local government agencies or organizations,” said Deborah DeBernard AIA, NCARB, Architect AIBC, LEED BD&C, Vice President & General Manager of AIA Contract Documents at the AIA.

The ten KDE versions of AIA Contract Documents are:

  • A101™-2007, Owner/Contractor Agreement - Stipulated Sum
  • A132™-2009, Owner/Contractor Agreement, CMa Edition
  • A141™-2004, Owner/Design-Builder Agreement

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
