Architects' fees continue spiralling rise

  • Comment
Average architectural fees have risen substantially over the last five years, according to new research released today.

After taking into account inflation, average fees have increased by 3 per cent in real terms in 2005 and by 8 per cent since 2000.

Average fees charged for commercial work have increased the most over the last five years - up by 12 per cent. Private housing work has seen average fees rise by 8 per cent over the same period.

But hourly rates, according to the 2006 edition of Architects Fees, have increased by just 1 per cent during 2005, the lowest rate of increase recorded since the survey began in 1998.
