Our fees are always fixed and agreed in advance. We will never charge you for anything without your agreement. The timing of stage payments will made clear at the outset. We are aware that any project is very important. Part of ashleydavisarchitects’ goal is to make this process as straightforward as possible and to arrive at a finished product that gives you exactly what you were looking for, if not more.
We appreciate that when you are planning a new project it can be difficult to know where to begin. An initial consultation is offered to all potential clients, free of charge. At this first meeting we will endeavour to give you an indication regarding the feasibility of the project in both planning and building terms. We may also suggest alternative ways of meeting your requirements.
After the meeting we will write to you with our fee quotation. This will usually be calculated using our assessment of the amount of time and resources required to undertake your project in the correct, professional manner. Historically, architects have calculated fees as a percentage of final construction cost, but we will only utilise this method in exceptional circumstances.
For clarity and the protection of all parties we ask that our engagement be formalised using the appropriate form of standard agreement published by the RIBA for the purpose.
Our services are matched to suit individual client’s needs and can include some or all of the following services:
WE OFFER THE INITIAL VISIT TO SEE IF YOUR PROJECT IS VIABLE AND IF YOU LIKE WHAT WE OFFER.
