^ Design work is done on the basis of the client brief.
Our fee up to these points will be based on the indicative Cost of Works as deﬁned by the Quantity Surveyor or successful Tenderer/Contractor.
If the Cost of Works is over the budget, we can work to reduce the scope to meet the budget. This work (”cost cutting”) is chargeable at an hourly rate.
Once the Cost of Works is brought into line with the budget, ongoing fees will be based on the revised Cost of Works.
