B101-2017 is a standard agreement between the owner and architect for construction planning and construction work and includes the architect`s responsibility for costing and project planning. B101 also includes services to assist the owner in bidding or obtaining proposals to negotiate from contractors during the purchase. Services are subdivided into basic, back-up and back-up services. Basic services are carried out in five phases: schematic issue planning, design, construction documents, procurement and market management. Additional services are identified as architect`s managers at the time of the contract, while additional services are defined as as they appear during the project. When selecting a contract for a project, consider the method used to execute cost estimation and planning operations. If a project follows the traditional method of assigning these tasks to the architect and the acquisition is through offers or negotiations, B101 is appropriate. However, when the owner assigns an advisor to provide cost estimates and planning services during the design and the acquisition is made through offers or negotiations, B103 provides more specific conditions to respond to this situation. B132 offers an optional choice if the owner has hired a site manager for construction and construction work, but nevertheless intends to offer or negotiate the contract for work based on the design. When a general contractor acts as site manager and builds the project, B133 is the form to be taken into account. B132-2009, the standard form of the agreement between the owner and the architect, site manager as a consultant edition, is similar to B103, except that it expressly assumes that the owner retains a site manager to provide cost estimates, project planning and other services during the design. The B132 provides for the architect to collaborate with the site manager during the design phases and assist the owner and site manager in the tendering process or obtaining negotiated construction applications. During the construction phase, the architect provides most of the traditional services planned in B101 and B103; However, in many cases, for example.

B when reviewing bids or payment requests, responsibility is shared with the site manager.
