AIA/AGC Recommended Practices

The Recommended Practices of the Houston Chapters of the American Institute of Architects and the Associated General Contractors of America are designed to help any project flow smoothly from beginning to end.

Overview of the AIA/AGC Recommended Practices

For the past 50 years, the AIA/AGC Joint Committee has provided a forum for the Design and Construction community to discuss pertinent issues related to the construction industry. The Committee’s goal is to promote cooperation among all the participants and to develop tools that support a collaborative process. One tool developed by this Committee is the Recommended Practices Manual, which is organized to reflect the typical project delivery flow from early planning stages, selection of construction delivery methods, cost estimating, construction cost proposals, through completion of construction and warranty.
