4. Provider will prepare Shop Drawings depicting the Materials Package to be fabricated. Upon completion of the Shop Drawings, Provider will submit the Shop Drawings to Purchaser for review and approval. It is solely the Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that the Shop Drawings are consistent with Purchaser’s plans and/or construction documents. As such, any discrepancies between the Shop Drawings and Purchaser’s plans and/or construction documents which result in additional fabrication, installation, or construction costs, are the sole responsibility of the Purchaser. Following Purchaser’s review of the Shop Drawings, any required changes to the Shop Drawings will be billed at a rate of $60.00 per hour. Additionally, any required changes to the Materials Package will result in a change in the Base Contract Price. Such amounts will be added to the balance due prior to shipment.

Such additional drawings will be billed at a rate of $60.00 per hour and will be added to the balance due prior to shipment.

It is agreed that the Provider will not be responsible for any incidental, consequential, or special damages that may arise because of errors or omissions in Shop Drawings or because Shop Drawings are not completed on or before any particular date. If Provider’s scope of work includes engineering, the Provider will engage a licensed structural engineer, who is an independent contractor, to provide a structural review of Provider’s shop drawings.

Additionally, any jurisdictionally required onsite inspections by the engineer are the responsibility of the Purchaser and will be separately invoiced.
