Typically architectural fees range between 7-15% of construction cost depending on the level of services, complexity of the project and existing conditions to be dealt with during the design process. Are you asking for non traditional services of the architect as owners rep? Is it just the building department and the contractor to work with? Or are we liaising on your behalf with attorneys, water and sewer departments, your insurance company, utility companies, etc.? That all adds cost but convenience for you in both time and headaches that you deflect to us. In a comparative analysis our hourly rates are the same or lower than our contemporaries.

The design professional they chose over us low balled their proposal and ended up paying the same or much more than ours. Yes that was shared with us after that fact after it was too late.Up front proper due diligence by your design professional in existing conditions does cost more.
