Construction has its share of surprises, but we don't want architecture or engineering fees to be one of them. We are transparent with our fee calculations. We'll also give you an idea of what the engineering fees may be for your project. And we prefer to work with general contractors that provide upfront detailed costs to our clients.
Every project is different, so we provide services that are custom tailored to your needs. We'll calculate the anticipated hours for architectural and interior design services and provide a lump sum fee for an agreed scope. Our 2022 hourly rate is $160/hour for design and $175/hour for meetings. Our 2023 rates will be $170/hour for design and $185/hour for meetings.
Here's some typical project fees - for both architecture and interior design, combined, Schematic Design to Permit drawings.
