12.2 The Buyer acknowledges that the margins for error in following lay outs and plans are extremely small and may cause considerable extra and time-consuming work to rectify. The Seller shall be under no obligation to supply or install the Equipment until the Buyer has correctly prepared the Site in accordance with the Seller’s specification and or the conditions set out in the Schedule.

12.3 Any building contractor, electrical contractor, architect, surveyor or other contractor or person engaged by the Buyer for the purposes of or in connection with the preparation of the Site shall be deemed to be the agent or independent contractor of the Buyer.

13.5 Subject to clause 13.4 the Seller will, except where the work is repair work carried out under Clause 8, on request and within a reasonable time of such request and in return for the Buyer paying for such services at the Seller’s prevailing labour and materials rates, undertake routine maintenance of the Equipment during the period of warranty applicable to the particular Equipment.
