Construction Cost Calculator
1.1 These terms and conditions apply to the SIX AD ‘Construction Cost Calculator’ and ‘Architectural Fee Calculator’, hereafter referred to as the ‘Calculator’. All of the following conditions must be read in context with the full Terms and Conditions of Use. The user is granted a non-exclusive Licence to use the Calculator on the following terms.
1.2 The Calculator is provided for the approximate calculation of construction costs and / or the associated architectural fees for a building project with an estimated value of less than £500,000.00 and where the site is located in the United Kingdom of Great Britain. The Calculator is intended to generate indicative costs and is provided FOR BUDGET PURPOSES ONLY. Actual construction costs must be determined via an appropriate period of consultation, design and subsequent estimating by a suitably qualified person. Fees for Architectural Services must be agreed directly with SIX AD, via a formal Fee Proposal for Architectural Services, which must be agreed to and signed by all relevant parties, otherwise no agreement for architectural services will be deemed to be in effect. Please contact SIX AD for further information.
1.3 Copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the Calculator shall remain at all times the property of SIX AD and its respective Development Partners. You shall acquire no rights in any such material except as expressly provided in this Agreement.
1.4 You may not reproduce any part or parts of the Calculator or its output, either alone or in conjunction with your own material, except for the purposes of your private / internal use.
1.5 The Calculator output shall not be included on any drawings or other related contract documents intended to be used in connection with a building contract, either by / on behalf of a private individual, contracting party, or appointed party acting in a professional capacity.
1.6 You may not reproduce any part of the Calculator on third party websites; you may however provide a re-directing link from a third party website to the Calculator. Copyright and Ownership of the Calculator must be accredited to SIX Architecture + Design Ltd.
1.7 The Calculator is provided ‘free of charge’ by SIX AD for the purpose of generating budget costs for a prospective building project. Where a re-directing link is provided from a third-party website to the Calculator, the link shall only be established by you / a third party on the basis that the respective third-party website does not invoke any fee or penalty payable by SIX AD, its software / website Development Partners, or the end-user of the Calculator.
1.8 You shall not use, capture, sell, assign, rent, sub-license, loan, mortgage, charge or otherwise deal in any way in the Calculator or any interest in it except as expressly provided herein.
1.9 You may access and use the Calculator from any device that provides an internet connection and a suitable web-browser, however SIX AD will neither support, not offer a guarantee of compatibility between the Calculator and any specific combination of device and browser.
1.10 SIX AD will at its absolute discretion provide a reasonable amount of assistance on request, subject to the Calculator being used solely in accordance with these provisions and the scope of the user notes provided. SIX AD reserves the right to withhold any assistance that it does not consider to be reasonably required within these terms or in response to operating difficulties caused either by operator error or shortcomings, defects or incompatibility between any hardware or software.
1.11 You may not use, copy, decompile, disassemble, adapt, merge, translate, reverse engineer or in any other way modify the Calculator in any form, either in whole or part to any third party except as expressly agreed in writing. Any information imparted to you relating to the Calculator or the support thereof shall be kept confidential by you and used solely in connection with the normal and intended operation of the Calculator for your own use.
1.12 SIX AD reserves the right to withdraw the Calculator from use, either in its entirety or selectively, at any time and without prior notice.
1.13 SIX AD reserves the right to block access to the Calculator from specific third parties / internet addresses at any time and without prior notice.
1.14 The Calculator draws data for output via a server based database. As such, it is not possible to make an offline version of the current Calculator available to users who do not have access to the internet.
1.15 The Calculator generates results that are in turn adjusted based on current regional multipliers. For this reason the Calculator data will be updated periodically; variations in output will occur when the update is applied. SIX AD will not be liable to you for any loss or damage of any kind, where this has resulted because of an update in our database.
1.16 Entirely new versions of the Calculator may be released periodically, without prior notice to users. Although the current version of the Calculator is free to use, subsequent versions may require a subscription or ‘one-off’ payment for use.
2.1 SIX AD shall be under no liability to you or any third party, to supply the Calculator in respect of any circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
2.2 SIX AD will endeavour to provide continuous and uninterrupted access to the Calculator and warrants that an appropriate bandwidth will be provided to the SIX AD website and Calculator, in as much as can be reasonably expected to meet the anticipated demand. SIX AD does not warrant that the Calculator will be available for use by you or any third party at a specific moment in time.
2.3 SIX AD warrants that the Calculator will perform substantially in accordance with its intended and proper use. If you experience any unexpected results while using the Calculator for legitimate purposes, please notify SIX AD immediately and steps will be taken to rectify the software, in as much as is deemed by SIX AD to be economically viable / reasonable.
2.4 SIX AD does not warrant that the Calculator will meet your requirements or that the operation of the Calculator will be uninterrupted or error free or that all errors in the software can be corrected. You access and use the Calculator at your own risk and in no event will SIX AD be liable to you for any loss or damage of any kind (except where negligence is proven) including lost profits, lost revenue, down time or other consequential loss arising from the use of or inability to use the Calculator, or from errors or deficiencies in it whether caused by negligence or otherwise except as expressly provided in this Licence.
2.5 The entire liability of SIX AD in respect of any single event of default shall be limited to the cover provided by our Professional Indemnity Insurance, in respect of damage to the tangible property of the user resulting from the negligence of SIX AD or its employees, agents or sub-contractors and actions shall be limited to a period of 12 months from the relevant use of the Calculator.
2.6 Subject to the above clause, SIX AD shall not be liable in respect of any event of default for loss of profits, goodwill or any type of special indirect or consequential loss including loss or damage suffered by the user as a result of any action brought by a third party even if such loss was reasonably foreseeable, or SIX AD had been advised of the possibility of the user incurring the same.
3.1 Nothing in the Agreement will affect the statutory rights of a consumer in ‘consumer transactions’ under any applicable statute.
3.2 If any part of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable the validity of the remainder of the Agreement will not be affected.
