EXPRESSED AS PERCENTAGE OF ESTIMATED CONSTRUCTION COST

Traditionally, services in Category 3 Detailed Design and Category 4 Contract Administration and Engineering Review During Construction for certain project types have been provided on a Fixed Fee basis expressed as a percentage of Construction Costs.

In recent years the effects of wide swings in construction costs have introduced inequities that make this method of determining and expressing fees less appropriate even for projects in which there have been historically a predictable relationship between engineering costs and construction costs.

The attached graph represents data that is based on historical engineering and construction cost experience. It is recommended that it be used only as a guide and the Fixed Fees be based on properly prepared engineering cost estimates that take into account the complexity and special requirements of the project.
