Fee’s : AV Architects Approach To Fee’s

For details of commonly used and industry standard methods of arranging fee
agreements with Architects please refer to our fee section on our web site where we provide a brief synopsis of the matter and links
to RIBA Publications to assist potential Clients in the appointment process.
As noted on the website fee agreements can be complex but at AV Architects we
endeavour to simplify our fee arrangements wherever possible. We recognise that a
significant proportion of our commissions are modest in scale and associated with
projects very personal to our Clients. In these cases our experience suggests Clients
tend to prefer a clear picture of costs to inform their investment decisions from the
out set and therefore, whilst we are please to discuss alternative approaches, we
encourage fix fee arrangements where possible.

We also appreciate that some Clients may be reluctant to commit to fee agreements
at very early stages of projects due to the unknown viability of a development or
simply following only a brief introduction with an Architect. Furthermore, for both
Architect and Client understanding the specific requirements of a project may not be
clear at the very inception of a project. We offer free initial consultation meeting and
fee quotes but where preliminary work is required this is undertaken on a time
charged basis until a Client is happy to commit further to a project and an appropriate
fixed fee can be determined. Preliminary work may include survey of existing
premises, preparation of as existing drawings and feasibility or sketch proposals.
In the event a fee agreement is reached this will most commonly include payment
intervals which coincide with benchmarks in a project. For example there may be an
Architects fee to be paid on submission of planning application, on receipt of planning
approval, on building regulation application submission and so on. Any fee proposals
will be documented in writing to define the above.

Our fee proposals generally include for normal out of pocket expenses, for instance
travel and printing, but excludes local and statutory authority charges, surveys and
investigations, and special presentations unless noted otherwise. We also note that
our fee proposals assumes that any other consultants required such as Structural
Engineers will be directly appointed by the Client unless agreed otherwise although
please note we are happy to assist in attaining quotes for other consultants on a
Clients behalf.

Some additional notes to assist in consideration of other expenses which may be
incurred during the development process are available on our website

If further information regarding the above is required please do not hesitate to contact
