A little sample…
Is this template suitable for all projects?
This template can be used on any size project; however it’s a Royalty Fee Template. Royalty fees are appropriate for projects that can be duplicated and sold many times such as furniture, pre-fab houses, kitchen ware design etc.
If you need to write a more conventional design fee proposal for a project that will not be duplicated you may want to consider either the Standard Fee Proposal Template or the Small Works Fee Proposal Template.
Percentage & Lump Sum Proposals
This template allows for the Architect to charge a design fee plus a royalty fee. This is important for projects like furniture design which command a high degree of design work before royalty fees can be generated.
Hourly Charge-out Rates
This template includes a section for hourly charge-out rates which can be used to calculate fees for additional work.
Terms & Conditions
The template utilizes all the terms and conditions that BTM+C recommend in our video series and publications and that we believe are vital to the successful management of any architectural project.
