When choosing to hire a professional engineer, many factors should be considered. Of course, the price is one of them. We strive to be a great value to our clients. Often our proposals are the most cost-effective, but we are not always going to be the “Cheapest Engineer in Town”. To be honest, we do not want to be the “Cheap Engineer” and you should not make your decision on price alone. When you hire a doctor or a lawyer or another profession that you are placing your trust in, the cost may be one of your considerations, but the most important factor in determining your decision to hire a professional is their qualifications and reputation. When comparing us to another firm, please take the time to be sure they have prepared a detailed and thorough proposal and that you are comparing our price for the same scope or amount of work that we propose to provide. We do our best to include every design service in our proposal that your project requires, and to also note those services that are not provided by us but will be required of other design professionals to make your project a success. Typically, Engineering fees are 15% – 17% of the cost of construction that is detailed in their construction plan documents. So, if the Civil Site Infrastructure components for your project are estimated to be $250,000, you can expect the Civil Engineering and Land Surveying fees to be in the order of $37,500 to $42,500 for a typical project. Of course, every piece of land and every project is unique. Give us a call and let us learn more about your needs and your project, and we will prepare a detailed proposal for your review and consideration at absolutely no up-front cost to you.
