Services & Fees
We provide consultation on any aspect of building design or the Passive House standard.
Ongoing advice and support for duration of a particular project, one off fee of $1000.
3D Concept Drawings
$3000 for 3 unique building concepts, includes 3D computer modeling.
Refunds (when less than 3 concepts are produced) are provided when we are contracted to produce the construction drawings.
Construction Drawings / Ongoing Assistance
After the concept phase we will know how time consuming your design will be and we will quote you a flat fee. You can expect this fee to be roughly 3-5% of total building cost, depending on the site and design complexity. If you want to design to Passive House standard then this fee will increase to 5-7% of total build cost due to the extra detail and services provided.
Renovations / Alterations / Retrofits
For large jobs, the process of producing concept & working drawings is essentially the same, therefore the same fees will apply as for new builds. For smaller jobs (eg: adding 1 or 2 rooms), a flat fee can be negotiated or approximately 2% of build cost. Passive House retrofits will be quoted after inspection due to the variations of work required.

We are able to provide guidance and solutions for the improvement of project homes at the pre-purchase stage. Improvements at this stage can be offset by savings in other areas and giving you a much better performing house.
