Types of Fees

There are 3 main types of fees that architects charge their client.

  • Percentage Fee based on the value of the work.
  • Lump Sum (Fixed Rate).
  • Hourly Rate.

Architects normally charge based on a percentage rate. This relates to the type and value of the project and the service required by the client. The fee range can vary from 3 – 15% of the project cost.

We will discuss with you the nature of your project, the service that you require from us, and the fee assessment most suitable to you.

We generally start a project by offering a fixed fee for the initial ‘Concept Design’. Once that ‘Concept Design’ has been presented to our client, we then discuss the exact nature of your required ongoing service and the fee associated with that service.
