In our area I think the school fee is around 7.5% of the estimated construction cost.

No, by far most of that goes towards permits, development fees,  mitigation fees,  surface water management fees, and on and on.

Subject: RE: Architectural Fees for Residential projects

Last year I was involved with a spec. job in So-Cal. $1,200,000 was budgeted
for all hard/soft costs. Archs. fee including permits/engineering/city fees
was to be $15/sf. Projected sales price is to be 3.5 to 4 mill. I have seen
the same arch. do quite a few similar projs.




Comment: Does it mean that for a 5000sf home (sort of nearly a mansion)

a client would pay 75K in archit fees?


Sounds insane to me.



Sincerely, Gregory from Oz
