In the absence of objective standards at the TSA, the court found that trademark authorization required everything necessary to adapt the interior architecture of the project to the personal tastes of the decision-makers of the brand`s executives. What further complicates matters is that the executives and design team have completely changed over the course of the project. With the “current meter” of the construction loan, the owner began to put the normal planning and construction process on an extreme “fast lane” called “cave construction”. In this “process”, parts of the hotel were built by giving subcontractors sketches, notes and instructions from the interior designer and not with formal design drawings. Mistakes, problems and compromises have led to escalating conflicts between the owner and the brand. A recent New York State Supreme Court decision on the design and construction of St. Regis Hotel & Residences, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, debated at length the disputes between the owner and operator regarding the design, construction and opening of the project and the impact of the terms of the technical services contract on the project and the employment relationship of the parties. Ultimately, this leads to the failure of the relationship between the parties, loss of brand, construction and opening delays, and much higher construction and debt service costs. The lengthy decision, analyzing each party`s actions, shows what went wrong, and then assesses each party`s legal liability arising from the TSA language and the parties` behavior. While this decision is factual and project-specific, the case illustrates the importance of TSA and provides a virtual manual on what to do and what not to do with each party when developing a hospital project. 1.
If you request an accommodation contract with the hotel, please inform the hotel of the following information. The TSA is not “just another deal.” It requires coordination with other agreements, including architectural, engineering, interior architecture, special design, construction and loan documents. Those who treat the ASD process lightly do so at their own risk. 1.
