BOOST YOUR IQ// You have the Questions. We have the Answers. DBIA ALWAYS WANTS to know what challenges and opportunities practitioners and owners are facing. We listen for what’s missing, what works and what doesn’t to allow us to more effectively serve the industry’s needs. A case in point is the feedback we’ve received to DBIA’s completely revised contract documents, which were launched in June 2010. We received a variety of questions about the use of the current forms and addressed a few of these questions for your information. In addition, the DBIA Contract Document Taskforce has graciously agreed to provide additional forms based on feedback from DBIA members and customers. (This will not be a wholesale revision to the new documents.) The Taskforce will be led by Robynne ThaxtonParkinson, DBIA, who served on the 2010 Task force that revised the documents. The answers below are courtesy of Thaxton-Parkinson. Q: Is there a BIM exhibit for use with the DBIA 540 (Standard Form of Agreement Between Design-Builder and Design Consultant) available? A: The BIM Exhibit can be used with any form. Although it references the 525 (Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner & Design-Builder— Lump Sum) and the 530 (Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner & Design-Builder— Cost+Fee with an Option for GMP), those references are largely connected to definitions that are set forth in those documents, such as the Cost of the Work, identification of the Basis of Design Documents and other elements that are universal to all contracts. The “Underlying Contract” is the contract to which the BIM exhibit is attached. Q: What agreement in the DBIA family of contracts should an architect subcontracting to the design-builder use to execute with their consultants (structural engineers, landscape architects, etc.)? A: Most people modify the document 540 (Standard Form of Agreement Between DesignBuilder and Design Consultant). However, the lack of a formal DBIA agreement between designer and sub-consultant will be addressed by the Contract Document Taskforce. Remember, DBIA contracts and forms are provided in an easy-to-use and easy-to-modify Microsoft Word document format. Members receive significant discounts on the documents, which are considered the most balanced and fair design-build contracts in the industry today. At DBIA we pride ourselves on responsiveness to members. For example, this issue of DBIA’s IQ appears in an easier-to-read format—a direct response to readers’ concerns. Please send your questions, comments or observations on DBIA, IQ or the state of the design-build industry to IQ@dbia.org.
