Biomorphis can charge an Hourly Rate of £50 for all types of project. This approach suits clients who want to be deeply involved with managing their own project and prefer to use their Architect as and when they require.
Biomorphis will work in blocks of 10 hours at a time, so that costs don’t spiral and will issue invoices monthly, along with a time-sheet that itemise the costs.
This fee guide is only accurate when the site is located in Edinburgh, the Lothian’s, Fife or Dundee.
The fees described here are dependent on using standard construction methods and materials.
The fees described do not include for any interior design services, these will incur an additional charge if required.
If a Planning Application is refused permission, any appeal or new application is not included in the fee and will incur an additional charge.
The Feasibility Stage fees listed here are a rough guide, this stage alone is always charged by the hour. All other stages are fixed price.
The Pre-Construction Stage fees listed here assume working with one contractor to establish the cost of building work. If a tender to several contractors is required, the Architects fees will increase
Projects can take several years to complete, therefore the fees will be reviewed annually and will increase in line with the Retail Prices Index until the project is finished.
All Fixed Price fees are dependant on the project design remaining unchanged from the Feasibility Study and Biomorphis being given full control of time scales, with the final say on when to lodge all applications and begin construction.
Planning applications next to agricultural land or land whose ownership is unknown may require an advertisement fee of £100 to be paid to the local council.
