Is Hiring an Architect Expensive?

Postby JGropp » Wed Nov 11, 2009 5:21 pm

As for me, I've always kept my fees low
and in proportion to what's involved. Here's
my complete Design Program/Contract
(one page).
Jerry-

-------------------------------------------------------

Jerry Gropp Architect AIA PS 7620 SE 72nd St.,
Mercer Island, WA 98040 (206)612-7367 (cell)
proposes to furnish architectural design and/or
consulting services under the terms of this “DP”
Design Program/Contract
for the below and
overside described project:


A $500.00 (non-applicable) Set-up Fee is due
upon the acceptance of this “DP”. A Professional
Services Fee of $75.00/hour (plus expenses) is
to be billed monthly and is payable in full by the
10th of said month. Past due balances are subject
to a one percent/mo. rebilling charge.

The Architect may terminate or suspend this “DP”
Design Program/Contract without damages or notice
in the event of late or non-payment or any other
breach of contract.

The Client may terminate this “DP” Design Program/
Contract, for any reason, during the course of the
work without damages upon written notice plus timely
payment of any earned fees and/or reimbursable
incurred (including consultant’s fees). Such payment
by the Client and the acceptance of same by the
Architect shall constitute a mutual waiver of any/all
claims against the other. In any and all cases the
Architect’s liability with regard to his professional
services is limited to the total amount of fees paid.

The Architect’s Drawings, Specifications, Notes,
Photographs, etc. are hereby defined as
“Instruments of Service” to be used by the Architect
in providing said services. The Architect shall have
sole discretion as to how his Design Concepts are
drawn and/or described and/or presented and shall
retain ownership of any/all of said JG Design
Concepts and the above listed documents .

In recognition that many elements affecting the
Architect’s work and the delivery and/or execution
of same are beyond his control, time is not of the
essence in this contract (except for timely payment
of fees). Any modifications to this agreement shall
be in written form agreed to by all of the parties.
