How are our fees determined?
tecDESIGN los angeles works on a flat fee basis, determined as a percentage of the construction cost. the construction cost is being determined on the basis of square feet or square meters multiplied with a specific money factor of comparable projects in the area, – or on the clients budget. country specific adjustments may apply based on the country specific construction cost factor. our fees are typically at or under 50% of the total architecture fee, as determined above. the percentage depends on which design services the client needs. the local executive architect is typically hired by the client on a separate contract. if tecDESIGN is being hired by a local architecture firm as a design partner, this firm becomes our client.
