Planning and cost Advice
Having been invited to offer a quotation for architectural services on a project we meet the client, establish their requirements, view the site and give preliminary advice on the feasibility of achieving their goals within the constraints of the site and their budget, confirm what the construction costs could be and the likelihood of obtaining planning permission.
Our quotation and the planning and cost advice is given free of charge. Our quotation is fully itemised based on the level of service required and includes the architectural servicesural fee, structural engineering fee, planning and building regulations application fees and ancillary costs. On larger non domestic projects the services of a quantity surveyor or a CDM (construction design and management) co-ordinator may be required. We can recommend companies to fulfil these roles and that of the structural engineer if clients wish to appoint a structural engineer independently.
