Other influences that will affect the design and construction timeline are the distinctiveness of site situations like soil structure, landscape and environmental concerns such as protection lands, flood plains, wind zone designations and structural requirement
The client’s design program, their specific space desires for the project will also impact the time on which the project will be completed.
Every design is different, even if two clients could choose the same design the amount charged could be different because of factors that may affect both design and construction. And also we charge based on the amount of time taken on each design. The design amount is charged separate to the construction charge.
There are other cost that can arise if during the discussion other important issues like trees that are going to need removal, underground utility trenches, landscaping and other tasks, however we mainly recommend to see the site before we could start with the design so that we know exactly what we are dealing with or have enough information from the surveyor.
Other cost includes insurance, transport if the site is on a remote location, cost of printed material, and communication. On other projects there may be a need for soil, mold, lead and or asbestos testing and under certain conditions, reduction.
