When GIS installs Equipment, the terms of our installation include the provisions of this Section 5, in addition to the other applicable provisions of these Terms and Conditions.
Room Availability. GIS performs on-site installations in the room(s) designated by You on the days that You and GIS have agreed to as the day of installation. Unless otherwise agreed to in the terms of GIS’s written proposal to You, we assume the room(s) will be available during normal business hours, which for these Terms and Conditions are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time. GIS also assumes that no other person will be in the room when it is made available to GIS or its contractors. You are responsible to assure that the room(s) are ready for the scheduled installation.
Electrical Power. GIS does not install power or perform electrical work. You are responsible for all AC power connections that must be installed at the location before GIS performs on-site installations. All power runs must be clean and properly grounded, and installed in compliance with applicable electrical codes.
Parking. You will provide adequate parking for vehicles of GIS or its contractors. Parking will be within a secured facility and You will validate any parking charges or reimburse us for such fees.

You are responsible for the accuracy of the information provided by You regarding the physical structures including the rooms in which the Equipment is to be installed.
Labor Costs. All labor priced by GIS is non-union labor, and is estimated at straight time during normal business hours. Should GIS be delayed at any time in the progress of the work, by material changes ordered in the work, by labor disputes, fire, unusual delay in deliveries, construction delays, unavoidable casualties or causes beyond the control of GIS, the agreed upon time for completion shall be extended by Change Order for such reasonable time as the GIS project manager may determine. Such Changes Orders may include charges to cover additional costs incurred by GIS due to the delay.
GIS proposals for installation costs are based upon 8 hour days and 40 hour workweeks, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Installation costs for work outside of normal business hours or business days may be subject to overtime rates, when mutually agreed upon in writing. Overtime rates are defined as 1.5 times per hour rate for overtime, and 2 times the rate for weekends and holidays. Labor is priced at regular rates and does not reflect overtime. The labor and services quoted can be performed with adequate notice to proceed and with access to the site. Substantial delays in our start date or delays in site preparation causing us additional trips or the need to work overtime to complete the project, or any additional changes or modifications not included in the original specification will cause additional labor and or equipment charges.
AV Integration Projects. Should You decide to cancel a project or in part, prior to final completion, the Owner agrees to pay GIS for all costs incurred to date and/or to bring the project to an acceptable close. These costs are, but are not limited to: design and engineering services; project management; installation and programming technical labor; subcontracting costs; materials and equipment costs incurred to date; and other miscellaneous documented costs. Materials and equipment are also subject to our restocking charge policy mentioned elsewhere in this document. The following items are typical construction activities that are often required for the successful implementation of audiovisual systems.
It is assumed that any existing systems (Lighting, Shade, HVAC, Audiovisual and Control), that are to be integrated into the proposed system, will have readily available, the currently implemented version of system source code. If the original programming source code cannot be provided, any additional work required will necessitate a signed change order.
Owner is responsible for providing all telecommunications connection information as required for successful AV system network connectivity. Including but not limited to IP Address Information, Phone Numbers, Email Accounts, and network credentials.
All work areas should be clean and dust free prior to the beginning of onsite integration of electronic equipment.

- Finish work including drywall, paint and wall/ceiling framing.
- Millwork (moldings, trim, etc.)
- All owner network and phone system connections
- Permits (Unless specifically provided for and identified within the contract)
Site Access. GIS provided cost proposals are based on the assumption that that jobsite access is unrestricted and can occur during regular business hours unless otherwise agreed and noted in the proposal. Unforeseen restrictions may affect the project schedule and proposed costs. Parking and delivery restrictions including non-standard insurance requirements should be identified in advance to avoid disruption of the project schedule.
Safe Storage. GIS may at its discretion send tools and equipment to the installation site after prior coordination with the customer. Customer agrees to secure such items, and not open any boxes, unless required for safety reasons, and make them available upon arrival of the installation team. You will be responsible to provide secure storage for equipment during a multiple day integration.
Unforeseen Hazards. Costs included in the proposal do not account for any unforeseen hazards such as faulty existing wiring, dangerous structure, hazardous materials or any other issues that could affect safety and proposed costs.

GIS does not take any responsibility for any voice and data communications cabling associated with the installation. All voice and data services must be provided by others and be active and tested. You assume responsibility that all such equipment and any other equipment that You provide relating to the project is in good working order and properly installed.
Pre- and Post-Tensioned Ceilings and Floors. You shall identity for GIS the presence of any pre- or post-tensioned ceilings or floors within the area of installation. If GIS is to be held responsible for the integrity of such pre- or post-tensioned ceilings or floors, GIS shall obtain, at Your expense, one or more x-rays of the area(s) in which mounting hardware is to be attached to the structure of the building. All expenses incurred by GIS or its contractors for x-rays shall be paid by You, in the form of a change order or a line item in an invoice or purchase order.
Ceiling Tiles. You will provide GIS with a reasonable number of spare tiles of the same pattern and batch number as those tiles already installed in the room.
Termination. GIS may at any time in its sole discretion terminate or suspend Your use of the Service, block Your access to the Site, or deactivate Your account, if GIS believes that You have violated these Terms or Conditions.

In the event that a party elects arbitration, GIS and You agree that all disputes between them (and any of their respective officers, employees, agents, representatives, and owners) relating to any Service or Equipment or these Terms and Conditions shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration in Cobb County or Fulton County, Georgia, by a single arbitrator appointed by Henning Mediation and Arbitration Service Inc. and in accordance with its arbitration rules, and judgment on the arbitration award may be rendered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party to such proceeding shall share on an equal basis the expense of the arbitrator’s fees and the arbitration fees charged by Henning Mediation and Arbitration Service Inc.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, GIS and You may proceed in a court for the purpose of seeking temporary or preliminary injunctive relief for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm.
