FIL Design and Build - Standard Terms and Conditions

Here’s how you can share this:

1. Interpretation

In these Conditions, Charges means the charges payable by the Customer for the supply of the Services as agreed between the parties and recorded in writing. Conditions mean these Design and Build Standard Terms and Conditions as amended by Farnborough International Limited (FIL) and notified to the Customer from time to time. Customer means the organisation that purchases the Services from FIL and Services means the design and build services supplied by FIL to the Customer as set out in the relevant quotation. A reference to a statute is a reference to it as amended or re-enacted and includes all subordinate legislation made under that statute or statutory provisions. Any words following the terms including, include or any similar expression, shall be construed as illustrative and shall not limit the sense of the words, description, definition, phrase or term preceding those terms. A reference to writing or written includes e-mail. In the event of any inconsistency between these Conditions and the quotation, these Conditions shall prevail.

2. Basis of Contract

The Customer’s signed quotation constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase Services in accordance with these Conditions. The Customer’s signed quotation shall only be deemed to be accepted when FIL it is received by FIL at which point, and on which date a contract shall come into existence (the “Contract”). These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Customer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, practice or course of dealing.

3. Supply of Services

FIL reserves the right to amend the scope of the Services, if necessary, to comply with any applicable law or regulatory requirement, or if the amendment will not materially affect the nature or quality of the Services, and FIL shall notify the Customer in any such event. FIL warrants to the Customer that the Services will be provided using reasonable care and skill.

4. Customer's Obligations

The Customer shall co-operate with FIL on all matters relating to the Services and provide FIL with such information as FIL may reasonably require in order to supply the Services and ensure that such information is complete and accurate in all material aspects. If FIL’s performance of any of its obligations under these Conditions is prevented or delayed by any act or omission by the Customer (Customer Default):

  1. FIL shall have the right to suspend performance of the Services until the Customer remedies the Customer Default and to rely on the Customer Default to relieve it from the performance of any of its obligations in each case to the extent the Customer Default prevents or delays FIL’s performance of any of its obligations;
  2. FIL shall not be liable for any costs or losses incurred by the Customer arising directly or indirectly from FIL’s failure or delay performing any of its obligations; and
  3. the Customer shall reimburse FIL on written demand for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by FIL arising directly or indirectly from the Customer Default.

5. Charges and Payment

The Customer shall pay each invoice submitted by FIL in full and in cleared funds within 30 days of the date of the invoice. All amounts payable by the Customer under the Contract are exclusive of VAT unless stated otherwise. And such VAT shall be payable by the Customer in addition. If the Customer fails to make a payment due to FIL by the due date, then without limiting FIL’s remedies, the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment, in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.

6. Data Protection and Data Processing.

7. Exclusion of Liability

8. Limit of Liability

Nothing in clause 7 above excludes any liability which cannot legally be excluded. Subject thereto, FIL’s total liability to the Customer shall not exceed a sum equivalent to 125% of the Charges for the Services in relation to which FIL liability arose. FIL’s total liability includes liability in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract.

9. Termination

Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either party may terminate these Conditions and FIL’s obligation to perform the Services by giving the other party 7 days written notice where either the other party commits a material breach of these Conditions (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 14 days of that party being notified in writing to do so, or the other party takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration, provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent restructuring), being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business. In the unlikely event the event for which the Services are required (the Farnborough International Airshow) is cancelled, FIL may terminate this Contract forthwith and any monies received from the Customer for the Services will be reimbursed less any costs incurred by FIL up until the date of termination.

10. Suspension of Services

FIL may suspend the performance of the Services if the Customer fails to pay any amount due to FIL on the due date for payment, the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 9 above, or FIL reasonably believes that the Customer is about to become subject to any of them.

Severance. If any provision of these Conditions is or becomes invalid or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable.
