An integral part of the prime owner-contractor agreement, the general conditions of the contract sets forth the responsibilities of the owner, contractor and architect during construction. Through references to A201 in owner-architect agreements and subcontracts and the flow-down of A201 into subcontracts and other lower tier agreements, the general conditions bring order to an otherwise disjointed process. On building projects in the United States, the most commonly used general conditions document is AIA Document A201, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction. American Institute of Architects, Document A201, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, 2007.
