Professional Fees, Terms and Conditions

‹‹ back to Home  ‹‹

Our terms of business are as per 'Architects Appointment' (revised 2007) issued by the Royal Institute of British Architects and Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. For smaller contracts we issue a letter of appointment and ask for confirmation before we begin our services.

Fees can be charged out on a fixed lump sum basis, quantum meruit basis or a percentage of Contract sum.†At January 2018 our hourly rate†varied from £ 47.50 to £ 97.50 depending on type of work. We are not Value Added Tax registered. Fees normally exclude any out of pocket expenses, Local Authority charges, services of qualified structural engineer or other consultants. If required we will provide a pre-contract service only, handing drawings and specifications over to the Client after obtaining the relevant Local Authority consents.

On occasion we can be appointed to carry out a Feasibility Study for a fixed sum, approx £ 500 - £ 1,000. This†provides the Client with more information - an Outline Design with which he/she can decide to proceed or not.

If the job is abandoned for any reason fees are charged on a quantum meruit basis.

As a guide our services include:

Pre-contract including Inception, Feasibility, Outline Proposals, Scheme Design, Detail Design, Production Information, Bills of Quantities (if required) and Tender Action.

Post-contract including Project Planning, Operations on Site including Site Supervision to†Completion.
