I do not agree.  If the rates for engineering increased uniformly, the
customer would not have any choice.  After all the customer needs the
building.  His decision to construct is not based on the cost of
engineering.  However, he will try to minimize his cost by looking for
the "cheapest" designer.

Second, if the city or county or state mandate engineering, the customer
has no choice.
