Short Form Architect Client Agreement

23 July 2018

Just three pages and a cover letter, the ACA Short Form Architect Client Agreement is a fair and balanced model contract for use on small- to medium-sized projects.

“We're really happy with the new ACA Short Form Client/Architect Agreement as we find it quick to execute and easy for our clients to understand. We even had one client comment that the contract was the best he'd seen in the industry.”—Architecture Republic

Prepared by Christopher Larcos of Moray Agnew Lawyers on behalf of the ACA, the agreement provides a simple and clear template that has been approved by insurers Planned Cover. The cover letter and contract are available as editable Word files and as a PDF reference copy.
