Most projects generally start off with a client meeting to discuss and assess the
needs in order to agree as project brief. This often includes identifying possible
options, expenditure limits and timescale for the completion of the works.
Fixed fees are usually quoted for work from inception through to construction drawings,
specification writing and onto local authority submissions. Thereafter, for work
involved in the inspection of buildings, fees are based upon an agreed hourly rate.
Many building projects call for specialist advice from other professionals working
in the construction industry such as a structural engineer, quantity surveyor, an
energy consultant, and a planning supervision / CDM co-ordinator. The need for any
additional specialist work will be determined on an individual project basis.
