A well documented set of construction drawings NOW decreases additional “hidden” construction costs LATER! by @WJMArchitectPosted: August 22, 2012
By Bill Martin
A well documented project drawing set has a big impact on construction cost.
Less detail in the plan means more extra cost during the construction.
A well documented project gives the client maximum negotiating leverage with contractors during competitive bidding, this saves much more than the cost of the architects fee, reducing the total construction cost by thousands.
Listing out all of the fees and expenses and pushing to minimize each expense will not result in the lowest possible total cost.
There is an inverse relationship between construction cost and architects fee.
A well documented project drawing set may require more for an architects fee, but has a big impact on reducing total construction cost.
