Best Practices Guide

Best Practices Guide Preface:

The Best Practice Guide, generated by the AIA-MBA Joint Committee, provides some collective wisdom about building design and construction industry procedures, processes and paradigms from this group of collaborative architects, contractors and owners from the Western Pennsylvania building industry. 

This guide is written for practitioners and their clients.  The experienced practitioner, estimator, contractor, designer, etc. can find specifics and refreshers.  The less experienced can find guidance, and all should find this guide a helpful tool for educating the customer. 

To assure the construction industry benefits from a current and respected set of impartial recommendations, since 1967 (originally published as the Yellow Book of Recommended Construction Practices) the AIA-MBA Joint Committee continually endeavors to update The Best Practices Guide, now maintained digitally online, in keeping with the evolving construction industry.
