With exceptions to every rule... pricing of conceptual building plans for Owners is a pretty accurate science. The challenge is in pricing the cost of developing sites. Storm water, retention ponds, electrical and water service including fire lines gets complicated. This is where our services in analyzing sites for Owners is critical in purchasing property or in the earliest days of project development.

I create the conceptual budget based on the written scope of work. Fixed systems such as  Walls, foundations, roof, windows get designed early on and need to be priced in the conceptual design phase. the operating HVAC, electrical systems get designed next and need to be priced during the Design Development Phase. With nearly 80% of the cost of a project designed into a project during these two phases this is where we get it right based on the budget. If something is out of balance this is where we fix it.

Many Owners who hire their Design team are void of any Budget Management through the design process. I can Budget each Owners project through our historical data base... based on a written description of the project. From there I can provide a written scope of work that becomes the benchmark going forward to incrementally update the budget at every stage of Design. All the while giving the Owner/Client the ability to control their project financially... eliminating surprise factor after Design is completed.
