Unless specified in writing no variation of the following terms and conditions will be allowed.
We make every endeavour to ensure that our products are up to sample, however we cannot be held responsible for variations between different shipments of materials, in particular timber, which as a natural product has considerable variation. We reserve the right to alter specification without prior notice should new methods or material shortages dictate.
Sites & Services
Unless otherwise stated our quotation assumes that all sites are level, and made up of a suitable base consisting of hardcore or concrete which is capable of carrying heavy plant and machinery in all weather conditions, and not made up with in-fill materials and are free from under-ground drains or services and have good access for articulated lorries. All responsibility for services either under-ground or overhead are the responsibility of the Client. Our costings assume free use of on-site services. Before commencement of the contract the site is to be prepared by others and in the Companies opinion be ready for excavation and erection machinery to travel on, this may include a 3m hardcore area around the perimeter. Spoil from excavation will be left adjacent to foundations and all waste materials will be left tidy on site unless otherwise agreed with the Client.
All delivery is based on a hard roadway to the site and upon you providing assistance to unload. Any excessive carrying from our vehicle is to be paid for as an extra. Any delivery or erection period is given in good faith and we will not be responsible for any loss, however incurred, caused by late delivery/erection.
Supply only Contract – 50% contract value on order acknowledgement; balance on delivery.
Supply & Erect Contract – 25% contract value on order acknowledgement; further 50% on commencement of erection; balance on completion of erection.
Our quotation is based on current day costs of materials and labour. If there are significant fluctuations in cost of materials or labour between Contract date and date of dispatch from our premises we reserve the right to revise the Contract price by Agreement with the Client.
The Company reserves the right to charge interest on unpaid accounts at 2% per month or part month from the due date for payment until payment is actually received by the Company.
Retention of Title:
The property in any goods delivered by the Company to the Client shall remain in the Company until such time as the Client has paid in full for those goods and the Company may at any time recover and dispose of any goods in which the Company has retained the property.
In the event of cancellation prior to manufacture we reserve the right retain all or part of the deposit to cover expenses incurred. In no circumstances will we accept cancellation after manufacture.
The Company reserves the right to sub-contract the whole or any part of the work to approved specialists at its option.

The Company will only accept responsibility for the structure and materials on site up to issuing of the Certificate of Completion letter for the Contract. The Client must then make their own insurance arrangements.
Liability for Accidents & Damage:
If we, our agents or sub-contractors are on site for the purpose of the Contract the Client shall be indemnified against direct damage or injury to the Clients property or person or that of others occurring whilst such work on site is proceeding to the extent caused by the negligence of ourselves, our agents or sub-contractors but not otherwise, by making good such damage to property or compensating personal injury provided that:- (i) our total liability for damage to property shall not exceed £500,000 or the Contract price whichever is the greater; (ii) we shall not be liable for any loss of profit or any other consequential loss. Save a provided for in paragraph headed Warranty we shall not be liable for any damage or injury occurring after our completion of work on site.
Defects after Delivery – we will make good by repair or, at our option, by the supply of a replacement, defects in the goods or faulty workmanship which, under proper use, appear within a period of six calendar months after completion of the contract. This warranty applies only if the defect arises from faulty design, materials or workmanship and is in lieu of any warranty or condition implied by law as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of the goods or of the work and, save as provided in this clause, we shall not be under any liability, whether in contract tort or otherwise in respect of defects or (except as provided by law) for any damage or loss (including loss of profits or consequential loss) resulting from such defects or from any work carried out by us.
