Our costs will always depend on the type of project and the level of involvement you require from us. To quote figures without knowing the project details would be misleading. Generally, the majority of our projects are either priced on a modest percentage of the anticipated build costs or a fixed lump sum, which is calculated based on our involvement, this ensures that clients have costs certainly from the start of a project.
Some companies offer standard fee packages which may give the client a better initial idea of costs but are not tailored to individual projects, which may mean the client could lose value for money paying for services that are not necessarily required.
At PJH Architectural Services we carry out an initial consultation with all our clients. We will provide a written scope of works clearly identifying the breakdown of our services provided, their associated costs, timescales and our payment terms.
Extensive feedback from our vast amount of previous clients, has shown this exercise to be invaluable for our clients, and ensures that every client is aware of all associated costs, inclusive of our design fees and 3rd party fees such as planning application fees, building regulations fees and structural engineers fees from day one, which allows these figures to be factored into the whole project from the beginning.
When choosing a designer, we totally appreciate that cost is important, however the cheapest is not always the best option to go for .
