As RIBA chartered architects we are obliged to maintain professional indemnity insurance for six years to cover all our advice (whether we are paid for this advice or not). We are also obliged to act according to the Architects Code of Conduct.
Fees and Estimates
We usually base our fees on a percentage of the build cost, however we are happy to work on a resource based fee (please see Explaining an Architect’s Services, and Working with an Architect for your home published by the RIBA).
We endeavour to provide realistic estimates with regard to project costs and programme. We never provide over optimistic estimates to win work.
We understand that not everyone requires the full architectural and project management service, so we like to tailor our services for individual projects; we offer concept development and ideas, planning applications, building control drawings, tender and construction drawings, specification writing and advice on site.
We are also happy to make simple suggestions regarding storage, space planning and even to give informal construction advice on your build.
