Our BIM pricing for every project depends on the scope of work and the engagement model. We offer three engagement models for Revit BIM modeling and AutoCAD drafting services:
- Hourly rate: We charge an hourly rate for our services. This is the most common engagement model for small projects or projects with a well-defined scope of work.
- Fixed fee: We agree on a fixed fee for the project with the client. This is a good option for projects with a well-defined scope of work and a tight budget.
- Dedicated team: We assign a dedicated team of architects and engineers to work exclusively on the client’s project. This is a good option for large or complex projects where the client needs a high level of customization and support.
Architect / Hour Cost
This is the most common way to hire an architect. The client will pay the architect an hourly rate for their services. This can be a good option for smaller projects or for projects where the scope of work is not well-defined.
Finish Project / Total Cost
This is where the client and architect agree on a fixed fee for the project. This can be a good option for projects with a well-defined scope of work and a tight budget.
Architects / Month Cost
This involves hiring a team of architects and engineers to work exclusively on the client’s project. This can be a good option for large or complex projects where the client needs a high level of customization and support.
Which method is right for you?
The best way to choose between an hourly rate and a dedicated team is to consider the specific needs of your project. Consider the size and complexity of your project, your budget, and your timeline.
If you have a small or straightforward project, an hourly rate may be a good option. If you have a large or complex project, a dedicated team may be a better option.
It is also important to note that you can negotiate the fee with the architect. If you are on a tight budget, you may be able to negotiate a lower hourly rate or a fixed fee for the project.
No matter which method you choose, it is important to get everything in writing. This will help to avoid any misunderstandings down the road.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) can help to reduce costs in a number of ways, including:
- Improved design and coordination: BIM can help to identify and resolve potential conflicts between different building systems early in the design process. This can help to avoid costly changes and rework during construction.
- More accurate estimates: BIM can be used to generate more accurate estimates of the materials and labor required for a project. This can help to avoid budget overruns.
- Reduced waste: BIM can be used to optimize the design of a building to reduce material waste. BIM can also be used to track and manage materials on site, which can help to reduce theft and loss.
- Improved efficiency: BIM can help to improve the efficiency of the construction process. For example, BIM can be used to generate detailed construction schedules and to coordinate the work of different subcontractors.
- Reduced risk: BIM can help to reduce the risk of delays, accidents, and other problems during construction. For example, BIM can be used to identify and mitigate potential safety hazards.
