At Beverley Hui Architect we work on a rate per square meter, for both the drawing phase and the site work. This eliminates any conflict of interest in ensuring that the client recieves the best price possible for the tender process. It also provides greater certainty regarding the architect's fees at the outset of the project.

Fees as Percentage of Building Cost
Luxury 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 R520/mē + R520/mē = R1040/mē equates to 8 % of the building cost. After contacting other professional architects, you will find that this is bellow the market related price for professional architects, and the recommendation from the South African Council for the Architectural Profession. The fee as a rate per mē enables the client to plan effictively, since the final cost of the building is unknown at the time of planning.
