How much do architects charge for renovation or extension plans?
Architects charge between $50 and $110 per hour for their labour, with an average quoted hourly rate of $74 per hour. The average quoted price for renovation or extension drafting is $7,292. Typically, an architect will make a site visit and work with the client to produce drawings and plans to their liking. Architects can also assist with submitting plans and development applications to councils and the relevant authorities. Some architects can recommend builders and contractors, provide project management and interior design services, as well as help source fixtures and fittings. Often, architects have relationships with suppliers of building materials and can negotiate a better price than you can ordinarily get through retail channels.
