People often ask ‘What are building design costs? and “What price do Brisbane building designers charge?’ And the reality is that prices can vary from one Brisbane building designer to the next.
At Yolk we know that our prices – which are calculated on a per square metre rate – give our clients great value for money, particularly when you consider our experience, ability and what’s included.
Our prices for large building companies and residential developers vary based upon the scope of work and services that you require. The table below does not relate to the prices that we would necessarily charge for high volume design and drafting of large projects. Please call us so we can provide you with an accurate price for our project.
Building Design Costs and Prices
Our prices vary, normally between $20/m2 – $75/m2, depending on the type of project. Obviously straightforward single level home modifications attract a lower rate than large two-storey renovation designs.
Accurate quoting is important to us. So we insist on scoping your project and using our matrix to personalize your quote or in the case of smaller jobs we may specifically quote a particular project before we commence work. However to give you an approximate idea the table below is an indication of our fees:
|Drafting work||Where you already have your own design in both floor plan and elevation formats.||from $20|
|Basic projects with minimal design input needed||Carports, basic decks or small projects where you have already decided on the design and simply need us to draw it up.||from $20|
|Medium level projects||Single room additions or extensions, larger more complex decks.||from $30|
|Larger projects or any size on a sloping block||New homes, large multiroom renovations.||from $35|
|Complex projects||Any project whether small or large with different outcomes, difficult site, lots of complexity||tbc|
There is no charge for our initial Client Requirement Meeting for draft work if you come to our offices. A fee will apply if we come to you for both travel and this meeting time.
Fees apply for our Design/Advice Consultations. Our building designers are extremely talented so you are really investing in their design expertise in these meetings which cover their time should you not wish to proceed to a full design service. If however you do proceed with our sketch design service the price of this initial consultation is deducted from your next invoice, effectively making your design/advice consultation FREE.
Depending on your project and which services you require we may need to engage external consults such as structural engineers, surveyors, landscape designers, interior designers etc. We will source quotes from the most suitable consultants on your behalf. You then pay these consultants directly, we do not put a loading on these consultants fees for service.
