After the architect and contractor have been selected, a critical phase of the project needs to be thoroughly examined, customized and executed. THE CONTRACT. Architects and contractors usually provide owners with a standardized AIA or AGC contract. Architects and contractors modify the contract to include technical information about the project. The contract is reviewed by the owner and the owner’s legal team. Neither of which normally have any experience in construction contract law. Failure to properly understand and review the contract by a professional experienced in construction procedures and methods can inflate the cost component by millions of dollars.
