Details: The fee for these six steps; the basic architectural services, usually amounts to 12-15% of the cost of construction. This amount varies depending upon the complexity of the project, the level of detail and materials used, and the overall size of the project (smaller projects usually reflect a higher percentage).
All time is billed hourly. We bill monthly and as we are a small office, timely payment is required (within 15 days unless arranged otherwise). We reserve the right to raise our rates a modest amount each Fall.
All reimbursable expenses will be billed at cost + 15%.
Consultants, as necessary shall be retained by you. If we retain them, their fees will be marked up 15%. Depending on the nature of your project, these consultants may be used: structural engineer, surveyor, soils engineer, civil engineer, mechanical & electrical engineer, cost estimator, energy consultant (Title 24 Calculations). Typically, you may assume that consultant fees will total roughly 3-5% of the cost of construction.
Thank you for considering our office to assist you in your project. < prev
