Subject: Standard Form of Agreement
Sorry that this isn't exactly structural. We are fairly new at this business - our company is only about 7 years old and before I came, we didn't have a registered Engineer (now we have a total of one). Most of our work before I came was steel detailing but we are now moving in the direction of doing design work. We are in the process of renewing our liability insurance and at this time I am reminded that one of my goals for the past year was to do something about making sure that we use contracts to help protect ourselves. I know that we need to say things about not being responsible for job safety, means, methods....etc. Up until now, we have described our scope of work in proposal letters but I know that these don't resemble a Standard Form of Agreement Between Engineer and Owner. I was wondering what the general practice is out there. Maybe this is a question for a lawyer, but rather than attaching many pages of contract language to our proposal to do a little mezzanine design job, is it acceptable to incorporate such a standard agreement form by reference to it? (I'm thinking that I don't want to scare away potential clients.) Have any of you found a simple way of doing this? As always - thanks for your help.
