You may have noticed that we did not include the design costs in this breakdown. And while depending on the size of the project, you can include your costs directly in your contract, we think it`s best to omit them. Fees and services need to be addressed, but this is more appropriate in your “work volume” document. Use your contract for “general business practices.” When delivering your contract, it is not realistic that you have a full volume of work on that date. For the contract, all you have to do is include a simple work instruction. Once the contract is signed, you complete the welcome stage of a project that will help you define a detailed volume of work that will be presented and approved by your client. The contract and the volume of work will eventually support each other. The pre-project concept includes the registration meeting, location survey, measurements (if necessary) and photos. Collect some inspiring images of your client. The best way to collect inspiring photos is for the customer to load and share with Google Docs, Pinterest or Houzz. Ask the client to provide plans, if available. Sometimes supplier prices change without notice. If the supplier price changes before the order, I will inform you in writing and conclude the specific order for you with your agreement and agreement for payment of the new price indicated.
In addition, you are responsible for VAT, freight, delivery and installation costs. Credits for goods and/or services are always due to delivery or installation. If you find a defect or defect in the project or non-compliance with the contract documents or if you notice in another way, you will inform me immediately and in writing. I will ask you to provide information as quickly as necessary for the orderly progress of the work. If you want me to work in areas that are not defined in this agreement, I would gladly do so if I am. I will ask you to approve these requests in writing so that we have a clear understanding of what these new tasks are. I will ask you to pay for these services at the normal hourly rate. One great thing, often overlooked, with interior architecture contracts is intellectual property (or IP). There is a surprising amount of IP that is involved in the design process, including (but not only) construction designs, details, approvals, 3D renderings, etc. These assets are created for the client, but are ultimately the property of the designer (it`s you) – and they are valuable! So make sure you protect yourself by hi-lighting that is here. The drawings, drawings and renderings that I make available to you as instruments of my service are my own creation and will remain my property, whether the project was made for them or not. You can only use them for other projects or extensions of this project, with my agreement and with adequate compensation.
It is best to spend a day during the week to update the customer.
