AIA Document C401-2007 is suitable for use with all types of consultants, including consulting architects. This document may be used with a variety of compensation methods.
This document assumes and incorporates by reference a pre-existing owner-architect agreement known as the Prime Agreement. AIA Documents B101-2007, B103-2007, B104-2007, B105-2007 and B152-2007 are most frequently used to establish the Prime Agreement. C401-2007 was modified in 2007 to be shorter and more flexible by "flowing down" the provisions of the Prime Agreement, except as specifically stated in C401-2007.
