Architects blast council over tender’s 70:30 weighting of cost over experience


Here's a thought- If everyone is as good as they think they are then they will score 100% of the qualitative assessment so even if the fee part were 10% it would become the deciding factor anyway. By having a bigger fee part the practices which have long track records could be beaten by others who are trying to get them. Potentially it gives more opportunity to younger studios who are prepared to work at it. Unless we go to a fixed price or the old type fee scale competition on price will always happen.
