e-Design Agreement

 

ASHA-MAÍA DESIGN e-DESIGN AGREEMENT

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE DESIGN FEE FOR E-DESIGN IS NON-REFUNDABLE. I UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL FURNISH THE INFORMATION REQUESTED BY Asha-Maía Design IN ORDER FOR THEM TO CREATE MY E-DESIGN & ROOM PACKAGE. I FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IS ACCURATE TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE AND THE E-DESIGN SOLELY RELIES ON THIS INFORMATION. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE COMPLETED DESIGN WILL BE DELIVERED TO ME EITHER THROUGH EMAIL OR THE CLIENT/DESIGNER PORTAL. THERE IS NO FACE TO FACE MEETING, AND THE DESIGN WILL BE IMPLEMENTED BY ME, UNLESS OTHERWISE ARRANGED. 

e-DESIGN TERMS AND CONDITIONS

This service is for online design consulting or local plan only designs, also known as e-Design or Room Packages. The names previously listed may be used interchangeably throughout this agreement. It is best suited for individuals who want to be actively involved in the management of their project. Some knowledge of how to use a measuring tape, take photos and computer skills are necessary. You do not have to be tech savvy, as step by step directions will be given in most cases. 

Asha-Maía Design is not responsible for the execution of design concepts provided. Online design consulting is a service intended to kick start your project and may or may not meet all your needs for a particular project. You understand that we are providing you with a design plan that you will execute and implement by doing all the purchasing and coordinating with the vendors that we specified in the shopping list. Once we deliver the plans to you, we have fully satisfied the agreement and we are released from further obligations. Asha-Maía Design will supply instructions for the taking of measurements for the space to be designed, but the client is responsible for providing accurate dimensions. If you live in our local service area, we can do the measurements only for you at an additional cost of $250.00 per trip. Asha-Maía Design will supply a questionnaire to get to understand your design style and expectations for the finished design. If you are located in Alexandria, VA and surrounding areas, you may request an in-home consultation at a separate fee of $300.00 for up to 2 hours to see the space first hand. We will take measurements at that time as well. 

Asha-Maía Design will not be responsible for the means, methods, or procedures of construction, fabrication, delivery, & installation, or safety precautions in connection with its Online Services, for the acts or omissions of the contractor or any, subcontractor, supplier, or other person performing the work of Online Service; or, for any failure of them to meet any schedules or completion dates. When appropriate, Asha-Maía Design will provide links for suggested products for your project that may connect you to a third-party vendor. We assume no responsibility or liability for your purchasing experience with third party vendors and recommend you review their policies before committing to any purchase. In some cases where appropriate and/or possible, products will be specified by manufacturer and item number giving the client the option to shop the product on their own for best pricing or for reference if they prefer to use local vendors. Client preferences will be determined through the initial questionnaire upon receipt of payment. In some cases, Asha-Maía Design receives a commission on the products we specify. In all situations, Asha-Maía Design will endeavor to specify products and sources that are in the best interest of the client and their project. All drawings provided by Asha-Maía Design are to be considered conceptual to convey the finished design and are not intended for construction purposes. Any drawings provided will be sufficient to present to a contractor or workroom to convey the overall design desired and to receive estimates if desired. All measurements are to be verified on site by any contractor or supplier before any final bids for materials or labor are submitted. 

Asha-Maía Design provides one revision of your project provided that they are requested within 14 days of delivering your final design. All items specified are available through local or online retailers. We have no control over their stock and inventory or fluctuations in pricing. Therefore, items may be on back-order, discontinued, or increased in price by the time you order. You are responsible for finding suitable replacements. Any further requests or changes beyond the 14-day allowance will incur an additional charge at an hourly rate of $125.00. 

Asha-Maía Design offers complimentary email support for any questions you have concerning your virtual design package for 14 days following full acceptance of the proposed design. Asha-Maía Design will not commence on behalf of the client until payment is received in full and all questionnaires and information required are submitted. The questionnaire does not apply to room package purchases There are no refunds issued on Online Services. Our e-Design service is available to Local clients who wish to also have more on site face-to-face assistance. There is an additional charge of $300 for onsite visits in Alexandria, VA and surrounding areas. 

Asha-Maía Design reserves the right to use any project drawings and/or photos for promotion of design services on social media or our website with the explicit guarantee that client privacy will be protected.

*This is for review only, not acceptance. Upon purchasing an e-Design package you will be required to accept this agreement. For any questions in regards to this agreement please contact us at: info@ashamaiadesign.com
