BASIS FOR FEE CALCULATION
Typically an architect will charge a percentage of project value, depending on the size of the project. For domestic work, this can range from 8-16% of project value excluding VAT. We will base our fee on a sliding scale percentage of the project value - we find this most accurately reflects the amount of work required.
The fee is broken down into four stages for domestic works - I, Sketch Design, II Developed Design to Planning Permission, III Detail Design to Tender, and IV Construction / On Site Stage. We fulfil all the responsibilities of designer under Health & Safety legislation, and we also offer the services of Project Supervisor for Design Phase (PSDP), under separate appointment.
All fees are excl. VAT
