Changes to hourly rates
I’ve been running my own practice since 2013, and for the past six years my hourly rates haven’t changed; we’ve worked really hard to keep our overheads low and ensure we are providing great value for money with our service. Unfortunately, the time has come where my expenses and overheads have increased such that I can no longer afford to absorb these into the cost of running my business.
Our new hourly rates are as follows:
- Principal or Senior Architect: $225.00 per hour;
- Architect: $150.00 per hour; and
- Graduate or Technician: $90.00 per hour.
Please note these hourly rates are exclusive of GST.
These rates will apply to all new projects and clients. If you are an existing client, in appreciation of your business, I will continue to bill at my previous hourly rates until 30th June 2020. You will see the applicable discount applied to your invoice. The new hourly rates will apply from 1st July 2020 onwards.
As I’m sure you can appreciate, this isn’t a decision I’ve made lightly. Thanks for your understanding, and I really appreciate your continued business and support. We will continue to work hard to provide a valuable, eco-effective architectural service!
