We offer a free consultation to discuss requirements and fees .
Contrary to popular belief as architects we do not cost any more for the same service as many of the building designers . We generally offer a competitive and flexible fee structure based on the projects needs and requirements.
Generally we offer levels of service to suit the project type and client requirements . Please consider that the cost of additional services is normally minor compared to the overall budget and
the importance of good design and docmentaion to the project cannot be understated .
Not only for the appeal of the project for future asset value .
When builders price a project the more information that is available to them and their subcontractors regarding the scope of works the more accurate the quoting can be as less risk is being taken.
Not only will the building price be more competitive the building will also be completed in a way that it should be as the builder will be guided by more detailed drawings . This may also be useful to ensure design integrity and the "vision" is achieved.
