CHILE STRUCTURAL FEES

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
IN CHILE   Structural Fees are about  0.3 % of the total cost ( comercial ) !!!

Big contradiction...specially because we are in a high risk  seismic zone....( in fact the Earthquake of  1960 was Mw=9.5 the highest liberation of Energy registered...)

HOW COULD WE INCREASE THAT NUMBER ????.....

I WOULD APPRECIATE IDEAS...

In British Columbia, Canada Architects get about 11% of total costs from which the sub consultant professionals are paid.  At the end of the job Architects may get between 5 & 7% of total cost.  Per hour $75 to $100 average.

Structural engineers might get 1.5% of total but usually between 3 & 4% of construction cost for the structural portion only which is typically 20 to 25% of total cost.  Mechanical and electrical consultants might get the same.  There are guidelines around here that suggest 6% of structural cost or $18000 whichever is the higher!!!!  Per hour $75 to 120.  (All $CAN)

Most of my peers are in the 3 to 4% of structural cost.  The hungrier ones, less.
