RE: SE Fees for Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Something between 0.75% and 2% of the building construction cost is typical.  Low end for repetitive easy jobs, 2% or more for harder, unique type work: (rehab and repairs).  I think for straightforward building projects the architect gets a bargain if your structural fee is 1% of less of the construction cost.

Subject: SE Fees for Building

Hello:
 
There are some rule of thumbs for estimating the fees for structural engineering of buildings.  I am interested in how other engineers bid on projects especially new construction.  I understand the Architects generally charge about 10% for the architecture based on the total cost of construction.
 
Your input is appreciated.
