For practical advice on using standard contracts, please contact Maura Gatensby Architect AIBC, Practice Advisor at email@example.com or 604.305.2699. AIBC Statutes 28.0 and 28.1 require architects to ensure that an executed written agreement is concluded for a client prior to the start of work. This architectural services contract must be a standard contract approved by the AIBC Council or be based on a standard contract with respect to services, responsibilities and terms and conditions, and must generally be in conformity with it. The AIBC Council has approved eight standard form contracts, which are listed below. Please note that the legitimate use of these contracts requires the purchase of authorization stickers for each party. Authorization stickers can be purchased via the AIBC (order form) and the RAIC (only for RAIC contracts).
