Drafting Services in Sydney: The difference between an architect and building designers Part 2
In the last post, we've differentiated between an architect and a building designer. What's next?
In this post we'll share how are they charged..
Cost: How are they charged?
1. A building designer has fees that are typically lower than those of an architect,. Cost depends on the level of service and are usually charged either on a hourly rate (ranging from $50-80/hour), or for a flat fee (such as drafting + submission to approvals)
2. An arhitect may also charged as a fixed rate or an hourly rate, or a percentage of the entire project (as a rough guide, you may be looking at 8 to 15%)*
*percentage indicate as rough guide and indicatively only.
