The Mystery Of Architects’ Fees
The majority of people have no idea how much architect’s fees are, and it is not without good reason. The different methods on how we can charge are confusing.
Traditionally we charge on a percentage of the Cost of Works, other wise referred to as the construction costs.
Here is an example on how it works. We have standard percentage fee depending on the projects complexity. To make the calculation simple we will use a figure of 10 percent. Thus if the budget for your Cost of Works is $600,000 (excluding GST) for a new build home, our fee would be $60,000 (excluding GST). If you had double the budget, the percentage fee charged by most architects would be less.
