    According to the interpretation provided in the book called: The American Institute of Architects Official Guide to the 2007 AIA Contract Documents,  the Architect or Owner's representative cannot easily visit the location where the materials are stored to confirm that what is being paid for has actually been acquired. Assurances need  to be given that the material stored off-site will actually be used on this project, and not on some other job.

    It doesn't  say explicitly that the architect need to visit the storage location to confirm......

    I would trust the Contract more than Ballast when it comes to situations like these. Have you tried reading the contract with commentary version? Perhaps the commentary can give you more light on this question.

    If it is agreed to in writing by the Owner and the Contractor, it should not be the Architect's job to visit every material stored off-site.
