AGC Maine and other partners in industry worked together to develop the Procedural Guides to Maine’s Building Indutry AKA: The Blue Book. The revised version was approved in Summer of 2009 and provides updates relevant to building construction today. Copies may be picked up at AGC Maine or downloaded for free below.

The information contained in this guide is offered as an industry recommendation only.  It is also recognized that the items and recommendations listed in this document may not fit or conform to every project’s circumstances or procedures.  This document was not written as, nor was it intended to be, an attachment to a legal contract or agreement; it contains a series of recommendations and guidelines.  The application of any or all of those to a specific contract or agreement must recognize the scope of services/scheduling/cost implications as they relate to the specific contract or agreement, as some items have financial implications.

It has been prepared for adoption by the Joint Committee of the American Institute of Architects – Maine Chapter (AIA Maine), Associated General Contractors of Maine (AGC Maine), the Maine Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Associated Builders & Contractors, Maine Chapter (ABC),American Council of Engineering Companies of Maine (ACEC) – Maine, and the Maine Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE).
