Commercial Fees

Each client and every project is unique and as such, they require a specific and selected combination and scope of services. Please inquire as to which services are necessary and appropriate to plan, design and construct your project.

Fixed Fee

The majority of our services are performed with fixed fee agreements. The fee is established based on the scope & extent of the work and the time & tasks required to complete the project. Many commercial projects will require and include consulting engineers ( structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing ) and interior design services.

Hourly Fee

We typically reserve hourly fees for very small projects with a limited scope of work, quick design studies or sketches, or planning phases with an undefined scope of work.
