New Insurance Requirements for AIA Construction Documents


The AIA contract documents are the most widely used form agreements for the procurement of design and construction services in America. Perhaps the most significant change for 2017 was the creation of an Insurance Exhibit.

The Insurance Exhibit also provides a great deal more specificity with regard to required property and general liability insurance. This topic will provide you with an in-depth understanding of how to use the Insurance Exhibit and get the most out of it to best insure a successful project.

Structuring Complex Easement Agreements in Commercial Real Estate Deals

Reciprocal easement agreements (REAs) are necessary documents to address access rights for adjacent development, shared utility infrastructure, the construction, maintenance, and repair of shared components, and the allocation of costs for such shared components. In recent years, REAs and commercial leases also have presented unique challenges to the repurposing of shopping centers and addressing shared spaces affected by emerging technology, such as parking areas. Our program will provide a framework for the drafting of reciprocal easements. The panel will provide information on relevant provisions to include in reciprocal easements depending upon the context of the project, including allocating development rights and encroachments into air space related to the development of the property.
