Qualified chartered architect, registered with the Royal Institute of British Architects with more than 25 years experience in the construction industry. Broad experience in residential, commercial, educational, retail, industrial and health care. Project work is delivered to a level 2 standard of Building Information Modelling (BIM) using architectural design software such as Autodesk CAD and Trimble Sketchup.

Architects fees will depend on the work involved in the project. Some practices are more expensive than others, and there is no universal fee level. But as an approximate rule of thumb it might be useful to expect total architects fees to be around 5 - 15 % of the overall project cost.

Most clients want competitive fees that are good value for money, for a quality service from a professional. It's not such a good idea to look for cheap fees. An extension or new house is a big investment that needs to be done right. Low quality, cheap fees are sometimes offered by others that come full of risk that could end up costing you more in the long term.
