AIA Document B214™–2012, Scope of Architect’s Services: LEED® Certification, establishes duties and responsibilities when the owner seeks certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. B214–2012 may be used to provide the scope of services for a prime architect who is providing LEED Certification services as an Additional Service, or, in the alternative, for an architect who is providing only LEED Certification services as a consultant to the owner. Although some of the architect’s services vary based on whether the architect is performing its services as the prime architect or as a LEED consultant, in either case the architect’s services include conducting a LEED Workshop, preparing a LEED Certification Plan, and Project registration and submission of LEED Documentation. B214–2012 may be (1) incorporated into the owner/architect agreement as the architect’s sole scope of services or in conjunction with other scopes of services Document, or (2) attached to AIA Document G802™–2007, Amendment to the Professional Services Agreement, to create a modification to an existing owner/architect agreement. B214–2012 is a scope of services document only and may not be used as a stand-alone owner/architect agreement.
