Joint Venture Agreement for Professional Services (1993)
This document is intended to be used by two or more parties to provide for their mutual rights and obligations. It is intended that the joint venture, once established, will enter into a project agreement with the owner to provide professional services. The parties may be all architects, all engineers, a combination of architects and engineers, or another combination of professionals. The document provides a choice between two methods of joint venture operation. The "Division of Compensation" method assumes that services provided and the compensation received will be divided among the parties in the proportions agreed to at the outset of the project. Each party’s profitability is then dependent on individual performance of pre-assigned tasks and is not directly tied to that of the other parties. The "Division of Profit and Loss" method is based on each party performing work and billing the joint venture at cost plus a nominal amount for overhead.

*OUT OF STOCK* as of October 2013. Available as a PDF download via Documents-on-Demand.
C132 provides the agreement between the owner and the construction manager, a single entity who is separate and independent from the architect and the contractor, and who acts solely as an adviser (CMa) to the owner throughout the course of the project. C132 is coordinated for use with B132, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, Construction Manager as Adviser Edition.
