Architectural Design

Our Architectural Design Package fees are fixed and based on the budget estimate for the cost of construction. The project budget estimated by AUBC is an opinion of possible costs only and is in no way intended to be taken as the actual cost of construction. The architectural package fees are based on single residential projects only. Medium density, multi-residential and commercial developments will be quoted individually based on the specifics of the project.
