What would the architect expect the fee to be for this project?
No two projects are the same. Therefore, no two projects have the same fee structure. If the scope of a project is clearly defined from the beginning, we are able to estimate the time and resources necessary to perform each project phase. Our proposal for Architectural services is usually a lump sum, divided proportionally between these phases. If the scope is not clearly defined, we can perform the services on an hourly basis until such a point when the scope has been defined. At that time, you will have the option to transition to a lump sum contract or continue on an hourly basis. We will walk you through the design process and explain what to expect at the conclusion of each phase. Estimates can be provided for expenses such as printing and delivery. In addition, estimates can be provided for permit fees, site surveys, soils reports, or anything else that may be applicable for your project.
