New documents based on concepts and model language included in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Guide for Sustainable Projects.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has introduced five new documents that are based on and incorporate ideas and concepts from the AIA's Guide for Sustainable Projects. The purpose of the new documents is to address roles, risks, and opportunities encountered on sustainable design and construction projects.
The new documents include:
1. A101-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement between Owner and Contractor, for use on a Sustainable Project where the basis of payment is a Stipulated Sum
2. B101-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Owner and Architect, for use on a Sustainable Project
3. A201-2007 SP, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, for use on a Sustainable Project
4. C401-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Architect and Consultant, for use on a Sustainable Project
5. A401-2007 SP, Standard Form of Agreement Between Contractor and Subcontractor, for use on a Sustainable Project
The guide itself, which is available for free download, has been downloaded 4,000 times since its inaugural release in May 2011.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
