How much do you charge for your services and how is this fee structured?
Our professional methodology and fee structure allows us to tailor our services to reflect the difficulty of the project, while defining a scope of professional services required to successfully design and construct your project. We can bill on a straight percentage of the construction cost or provide professional services based on a "time and materials" basis utilizing a detailed professional fee estimate reflecting the anticipated scope of services. As an advisory fee guideline architectural service usually amount to 8-12% for new homes and 10-15% for home remodels. We begin with a simple letter agreement that covers approximately 20-30% of our estimated fee, and finish with a standard AIA professional fee contract that addresses more complicated issues such as procedures and liability.
