Fees as Percentage of Building Cost
Homes around Cape Town area currently cost approximately R12 000/mē to R20 000/mē to build. Working conservatively on R12 500mē the architectural fee of R470/mē + R470/mē = R900/mē equates to 7 % of the building cost. The fee as a rate per mē enables the client to plan effectively, since the final cost of the building is unknown at the time of planning.
