INTRODUCTION


The Architect, in performance of his services to his Client, prepares the “General Conditions”

as one of the Contract Documents. The General Conditions define the relationship among the Owner, the

Architects and the contractor and stipulates the norms by which the contractor shall perform his work.



In order to maintain a high standard of professionalism in the implementation of construction

and to establish the proper responsibilities that would be fair to all parties involved in the construction, a

uniform provision of the General Conditions acceptable to the building profession is needed.



It is the purpose that the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) initiated the adoption of a

standard document to be known as “General Conditions”, UAP Document No. 301, for use by all practicing

Architects in the Philippines, subject to the approval by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) through

the Board of Architecture.



The task for the compilation, review, editing and printing of the General Conditions was given

to the UAP committee on the Professional Practice and Ethics in collaboration with the Inter-Professional

Conference Committee whose membership is composed of representatives from the United Architects of the

Philippines (UAP), the Philippines Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE), and the Philippine Contractors

Association (PCA).



The General Conditions is based on the standard concept of practice in the building Profession

by which the Architect performs his services as the prime professional commissioned by the Owner to design

and supervise a project which will be implemented by a General Contractor.



Other concepts of professional services and manners of Implementing construction which

require different provisions are stipulated in a separate document entitled “Special Provisions,” UAP Document

No.302.



In the course of the preparation of this General Conditions, the committee used several

references. Acknowledgment is hereby given to he former members of the Committee for the Initial review of

this document and to the Incumbent members for the finalization of the same.
