Dennis-

I'm glad you said something.

At $3.00/ft., I was starting to think about getting back into
residential!

:Based on the replies you received so far you might as well pass on this
:one. I can name a dozen firms (independents) who are or would compete
on
:this based on a square foot price for the area you are refering to at
$2.00
:to $2.50 per square foot. The same home in thr Riverside County area
for
:$1.50 to $2.00 a square foot - and do a comprehensive set of planes,
:observation and coordination. Competition is that strong. Most of the
:Architects I know (legitimate good professioals ) have already given up
:pricing on a percentage of construction cost as clients are tryiing to
:squeeze the additional traditional Architects fee into the cost of thei
:desirable finishes
:I can e-mail you the name of one firm in San Diego who sent a
reprsentative
:to Palm Springs to compete for residential work here for $1.00 a square
:foot and produces a bad product because the Architect doesn't care as
long
:as they get the permit.
:If you know any one at Esgil, Wildan of California Code Check (Tom
Harris's
:old fim of Harris Engineering) contact them to ask their opinion of the
:quality of engineering work being submitted for plan check.
:Most Architect's are either paying traditional higher rates because
they
:have the clients or they honor a good and close relationship with an
:engineer, but like most things - times are changing.
