Re: structural fee for apartment

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dave,

How many stories, how many units? 20,000 sq. ft. is small for an apartment building. There are no insurance requirements for an apartment building, other than you need to have it if the client requires; they are not the same as condos. One caveat, these projects often "become" condos not long after construction, and then you have all the same risk as a condo project.

The project fee should be what you require to do the job, or what the market will bear, whichever is higher. You have not expressed whether the project is simple, irregular, single, or multi-story. What is the estimated cost of construction? How long do you think it will take? Don't forget admin, meetings, shop drawings, etc...

Depending on complexity it could be anywhere from $30K to $50K or more.
