In addition to “how much is it going to cost?”, another common question we get from new clients is “how does the process work?”. We’re hoping to help you with that today. Below we attempt to delineate just exactly how architects can be a beneficial partner in getting your project designed and built.
If you are wondering why you can't seem to find an industry standard for establishing an architect's fee, it's because there isn't one (you're not crazy!). In fact, almost 30 years ago, because of a consent decree with the US Justice Department, the American Institute of Architects agreed not to adopt policies of offering fee recommendations to architecture firms. This means architects must act on their own, or consult with other firms, while deciding a project's fee.
We have been incredibly busy over at Prime working on some exciting and historical commercial projects around the OKC Metro. Be sure to check out some of our project sheets that further explain some of the projects we have had the incredible opportunity to work on. We love being a part of these types of projects and helping develop our home state, so if you have any questions or would like more information, we would love to help you deliver a superior project on time and on budget!
