Architect’s fees can be based on the following criteria:
a) Hourly Rate of the needs entailed to accomplish the work involved in the scope of the project.
b) Lump Sum which is a fixed priced for the overall work of the project.
c) Percentage based upon cost of overall construction of the project itself. The cost of construction is essentially everything that goes into building your project, so all materials that are affixed to the structure, flooring windows, in addition the bid from the contractor would be added into that cost.
