Standard Terms of Engagement

R; 01 Terms of payment

The Client agrees to pay all the fees due and any other charges due following alterations and additions, given in writing with an order number, to project details and project time scales. Invoices shall be payable within 14 days of the date of the invoice, unless alternative arrangements have been made in writing. Interest will be due at a rate of 2% above the Bank of England Base Lending Rate to be paid on any amount which is more than 7 days overdue.


R; 02 Terms of Estimations

If at any time during a project we feel that we have over or under estimated any of the costs or time scales then this would be reviewed and adjusted accordingly under our agreement.


R; 03 Termination of Contract

Where a project is cancelled charges will be invoiced to cover all reasonably incurred costs and disbursements. Where a Project is cancelled at half way stage then half the full Fee amount will be invoiced and where a project cancelled beyond that time then the full amount will be due.


R; 04 Duty-of-Care & Confidentiality 

Our duty of care & confidentiality is to our Client and not to any other person. Within the project, a duty of care will be maintained at all times and by all members of staff, on or off the site. A high level of confidentiality will be maintained at all times and by all members of staff, also on or off the site.


R; 05 Internal Survey Services

Full site access would need to be granted before any work is undertaken. For accuracy of our survey, laser measuring equipment is used throughout. To ensure safety Method Statements can be provided if so required.


R; 06 2D Space Planning Services

Before embarking on any detailed space planning design, we would recommend that a detailed furniture and storage audit be completed. This is a valuable tool that ultimately provides greater understanding of the brief and enables us to create the optimum use of the space available.


R; 07 3D Visuals and 3D Animation Walkthrough Services 

All 3D work would be charged and agreed before any work is undertaken.
