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. Often, design contracts are entered into in the form of consulting contracts or contracts of independent contractors. The „operational“ part generally remains the same (SOW, terminals, etc.), but the contract usually contains an IP (intellectual property) assignment provision to ensure that everything you create during the project is automatically assigned to the client. This is very different from the flexibility of licensing that we have just seen and, especially when the contract is drawn up by the customer, it gives way to clauses that are not favourable to designers. We identify the project needs and the design of your newly built floating home. The first step will be to change the original plan to meet your lifestyle; indicate the floor heating system, floor, wall covering, colour, kitchen counters/pulls/cabinets, chimney treatment, shower cubicle, toilet, vanity; Manufacturing of lighting, furniture, furniture and some accessories of choice. The purchase of the above items will not take place until after your agreement. I will also coordinate the installation and delivery of the project.
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. The extent of the amendments and revisions to this project is indicated in the reference document referred to in Section 2.3 of this contract letter. I do not want to limit your ability to change your mind, but please understand that it will cost more money beyond the stated price. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on the time I feel I have to accomplish everything you have told me, what you want to accomplish multiplied by my hourly rate.
