Percentage charges

Where LTA is appointed for full architectural services for a domestic construction project, then a fixed fee can be calculated. This will generally be between 10 and 15% of the total construction contract (including VAT). The % charged will depend upon the scale and complexity of the project.

For example a house extension / refurbishment with a construction cost in the region of £50,000 might incur fees as follows:
Feasibility study (if required): £500
Planning application: £800
Building control submission: £1500
Construction package for tendering: £1200
Contract administration: £1700
Post construction: £300
Total architectural fees: £6000 or 12%
