At the start of the work we make clear agreements with you on the financial aspects of our service. Our rates are competitive.
The work is often done on the basis of a fixed hourly rate. Rates are between € 45, - and € 92, - per hour*. The hourly rate depends on the ability to deploy the architect, consultant or employee. We work with time units of thirty minutes. The time units are accurately tracked.
Sometimes we work with a square meter rate. A square meter rate is a price for the entire design and construction process depending on the laboriousness of the work, like the building program, the scale and type of space. Rates are between € 20,- and € 150,- per m2*, estimated through experience and specified beforehand.
A third possibility is an agreement in which the costs of our services are calculated at a percentage of the construction costs. Rates are between 4% and 15%, depending on the complexity, type and scale of the work.*
Costs that we have to make on your behalf, such as fees and (repro) costs of (historical) documents, are usually charged to you in advance.*
Costs which we make on your behalf for third party consultants, including construction engineer, building physics consultant, economic and environmental engineers and other experts are usually charged to you in advance.*
