For example, GC projects use the standard aiA document E204-2017 Sustainable Projects Exhibit. The AIA has however developed an alternative version for CMa projects: AIA Document E235-2019, Sustainable Projects Exhibit, Construction Manager as Adviser Edition. Some of their differences are discussed below. Note that the various AIA contract forms related to the delivery method of the CMc project use the AA A201-2017 document as general conditions. In the CMc approach, as in the GC approach, the architect performs the typical construction management functions inspired by A201 during the construction phase. In other cases, CMa projects use standard AIA contract documents. Unlike CMc documents, CMa documents contain standard forms that are provided by the CMa, i.e.: recognize and sign the fourth main actor: the G731-2019 (Change Order, CMa Edition), G732-2019 (Application and Certificate for Payment, CMa Edition), G733-2019 (CCD, CMa Edition) and G734-2019 (Certificate of Substantial Completion, CMa Edition). This is the case with the AIA`s digital practice documents. There are no CMa-specific versions of these standard AIA forms. These include AIA Documents E203-2013, building information modeling (BIM) and Digital Data Exhibit; G201-2013, Digital Data Protocol project; and G202-2013, BIM Protocol Project. The clearly defined roles of the architect and GC/CMc in „traditional“ tripartite projects are known. The architect prepares the design and often proceeds to the management of the construction. The designer, whether GC or CMc, is responsible for things such as design means and methods as well as safety.
Although designers and designers work closely together, they have very different roles and spheres of influence. The fact that another participant – CMa – participates in CMa projects is the main difference between CMc and CMa project resolution methods. This additional part makes the CMa method incompatible with some standard AIA contract documents. The last four documents containing the AIA standard forms for the CMa method of project management, G731-2019 (Change Order, CMa Edition), G732-2019 (Application and Certificate for Payment, CMa Edition), G733-2019 (CCD, CMa Edition) and G734-2019 (Certificate of Substantial Completion, CMa Edition). They are very similar to other standard AIA forms, but recognize the CMa and require their signature. CMa often provides certain services traditionally provided by designers, for example.B. verification of shop drawings, product data, samples and other submissions). . . . .
