Explorative work includes all-time required to complete the administration for the project (meetings, telephone calls, emails and site visits etc); this is billed at an hourly rate recorded by RubinoWilson.
8.3. By providing a design the client is sub-contracting RubinoWilson to manufacture the piece and therefore RubinoWilson cannot be held responsible for any unforeseen problems with the design. Any additional charges will be added to the projects invoice to rectify the unforeseen problems or time taken to investigate the bespoke piece if the correct information is not provided.
8.4 Bespoke manufacturing by its nature can present unforeseen problems in the manufacturing process. RubinoWilson reserves the right for a degree of interpretation when manufacturing products to make sure the piece is delivered to the best possible standard.
