Good contractual arrangements are an essential component of a sound professional practice. A clear and complete contract creates a mutual understanding of expectations.
ASLA Standard Form Contracts are a business tool developed to meet the needs of the profession by incorporating up-to-date critical elements of instruments of service. Contracts are tailored for landscape architecture professionals and the clients they serve.
The standard contracts package contains:
- Three standard contract forms - Landscape Architect and Client Standard and Short Form Agreements and Landscape Architect and Consultant Agreement Form.
- Brief guidelines describing the contracts’ basic provisions and the attendant risks of particular clauses.*
The three contracts and corresponding guidelines are sold as an electronic package and licensed annually on a graduated fee scale, based on the purchasing firm’s size.
