Fee’s : Additional Costs Considerations Pre Construction

We provide the following notes to assist in consideration of other costs in addition to Architectural services which may be incurred during a development process. We note this is not a definitive or exhaustive list and there may be other costs to bare dependant upon specific project requirements.

Consultants:

Structural Engineer:

In the event Structural alterations or new structural components are being used beyond the use of traditional timber components for which load tables are provided in Building Regulation guidance document a Structural Engineer will be required.

Additional consultants may include Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) Consultant, Quantity Surveyor or Project Manager if required.
In particular it is common place for an M&E consultant to be consulted to provide SAP
calculations to assess thermal and energy performance.

 

Statutory Requirements:

Planning:

Planning Applications are submitted to the local authority and associated fees are published by central government. A fee calculator tool is available on the governments planning portal website. http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/england/genpub/en/1115311947810.html

However, local authorities publish application fees information which can be found on appropriate websites.
