Collaborative project delivery is gaining ground on traditional delivery methods in the building industry, engendering more varied project collaboration agreements. The C102 Teaming Agreement, released by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). emerged out of this trend, and provides teams comprised of multiple parties a way to pursue shared opportunities with an agreement that establishes roles and responsibilities for the proposal process without needing to create a new legal entity.
What are C102 Teaming Agreements?
Teaming agreements enable firms with different expertise to create a combined team that can more effectively compete in requests for proposals and design competitions. Teams governed by C102 agreements—which should be differentiated from joint-ventures—are not legal entities, but define prime and subconsultant roles, compensation expectations, and contingency plans for the purpose of pursuing a project before any project work begins. Though such multidisciplinary team arrangements have become increasingly common, suitable contracts had not really been available until recently.
Benefits of Teaming Agreements
Teaming agreements provide clear definition of roles from the outset of a project while enabling teams of experts to work together toward a common goal. Learn more about the benefits of teaming agreements and how they’re changing the way small and medium firms are coming together to win large projects.
How can Technology support Collaborative Project Delivery?
Technology is changing the way products, buildings, and infrastructure are delivered. Design, building, operations, and supply chains are in need of collaboration and data management solutions as the lines between industry teams are becoming blurred. There is a major shift in how design and construction firms operate as they leverage cloud technologies.
