The foregoing representations are subject (1) to an evaluation of the Work for conformance with the Contract Documents upon Substantial Completion, (2) to results of subsequent tests and inspections, (3) to correction of minor deviations from the Contract Documents prior to completion, and (4) to specific qualifications expressed by the Architect.

§ 5.1.1 The Construction Cost shall be the total cost or, to the extent the Project is not completed, the estimated cost to the Owner of all elements of the Project designed or specified by the Architect.
§ 5.1.2 The Construction Cost shall include the cost at current market rates of labor and materials furnished by the Owner and equipment designed, specified, selected or specially provided for by the Architect, including the costs of management or supervision of construction or installation provided by a separate construction manager or contractor, plus a reasonable allowance for their overhead and profit. In addition, a reasonable allowance for contingencies shall be included for market conditions at the time of bidding and for changes in the Work.
§ 5.1.3 Construction Cost does not include the compensation of the Architect and the Architect’s consultants, the costs of the land, rights-of-way and financing or other costs that are the responsibility of the Owner as provided in Article 4.
§ 5.2 RESPONSIBILITY FOR CONSTRUCTION COST
§ 5.2.1 Evaluations of the Owner’s Project budget, the preliminary estimate of Construction Cost and detailed estimates of Construction Cost, if any, prepared by the Architect, represent the Architect’s judgment as a design professional familiar with the construction industry. It is recognized, however, that neither the Architect nor the Owner has control over the cost of labor, materials or equipment, over the Contractor’s methods of determining bid prices, or over competitive bidding, market or negotiating conditions. Accordingly, the Architect cannot and does not warrant or represent that bids or negotiated prices will not vary from the Owner’s Project budget or from any estimate of Construction Cost or evaluation prepared or agreed to by the Architect.
§ 5.2.2 No fixed limit of Construction Cost shall be established as a condition of this Agreement by the furnishing, proposal or establishment of a Project budget, unless such fixed limit has been agreed upon in writing and signed by the parties hereto. If such a fixed limit has been established, the Architect shall be permitted to include contingencies for design, bidding and price escalation, to determine what materials, equipment, component systems and types of construction are to be included in the Contract Documents, to make reasonable adjustments in the scope of the Project and to include in the Contract Documents alternate bids as may be necessary to adjust the Construction Cost to the fixed limit. Fixed limits, if any, shall be increased in the amount of an increase in the Contract Sum occurring after execution of the Contract for Construction.
§ 5.2.3 If the Bidding or Negotiation Phase has not commenced within 90 days after the Architect submits the Construction Documents to the Owner, any Project budget or fixed limit of Construction Cost shall be adjusted to reflect changes in the general level of prices in the construction industry.
§ 5.2.4 If a fixed limit of Construction Cost (adjusted as provided in Section 5.2.3) is exceeded by the lowest bona fide bid or negotiated proposal, the Owner shall:
  .1   give written approval of an increase in such fixed limit;
 
  .2   authorize rebidding or renegotiating of the Project within a reasonable time;
 
  .3   terminate in accordance with Section 8.5; or
 
  .4   cooperate in revising the Project scope and quality as required to reduce the Construction Cost.
§ 5.2.5 If the Owner chooses to proceed under Section 5.2.4.4, the Architect, without additional compensation, shall modify the documents for which the Architect is responsible under this Agreement as necessary to comply with the fixed limit, if established as a condition of this Agreement. The modification of such documents without cost to the Owner shall be the limit of the Architect’s responsibility under this Section 5.2.5. The Architect shall be entitled to compensation in accordance with this Agreement for all services performed whether or not the Construction Phase is commenced.
ARTICLE 6 USE OF ARCHITECT’S INSTRUMENTS OF SERVICE
§ 6.1 Drawings, specifications and other documents, including those in electronic form, prepared by the Architect and the Architect’s consultants are Instruments of Service for use solely with respect to this Project. The Architect and the Architect’s consultants shall be deemed the authors and owners of their respective Instruments of Service and shall retain all common law, statutory and other reserved rights, including copyrights.
