Our Fees

As a client of PJH Architectural Services, you can expect a personal and tailored service, with a transparent fee structure from day one

What’s the cost of our services?

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, we have however provided three case studies below, which provide accurate costings relating to three live jobs.

Generally, the majority of our projects are either priced on a percentage of the anticipated build costs or a lump sum, which is calculated based on our involvement.

Some companies offer 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, following an initial consultation with the client, we will provide a written scope of works showing the breakdown of our services provided, their associated costs and payment terms. Extensive feedback from our clients, has shown this exercise is an invaluable one, for the client, and ensures that every client is aware of all associated design costs 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.

Clients require someone who is going to work closely with them, help portray their ideas, give guidance on what can be done and what shouldn’t be done, and provide cost effective detailed designs that can be carried through to completion.
