Dune Road Beach House


What Houzz contributors are saying:

With this oculus Tanney and Luntz have further refined their prefab system to create surprises within the modern modular framework. It's safe to say more surprises will follow in the future as they continue to refine their prefab modern houses.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Practice: Getting Paid
Percentage of construction cost: In this scenario your fee is set as a percentage of the construction cost (typically 8 to 20 percent or more). There are some pitfalls associated with this method of compensation. First you’ll need to define in writing what the construction cost that you’re basing your percentage on includes: hard costs, soft costs, site development costs, infrastructure, engineering etc. As you can imagine, this can produce a wide range of fees. This can mean the design professional isn’t compensated appropriately or the owner is overcharged for the work.One of the benefits of this arrangement, though, is that as the scope and construction cost increase, the fee rises along with it. Having a client who is open about the actual program and construction budget, as well as an architect who is knowledgeable in local construction costs, is key to making this arrangement work. It demands a thorough understanding of the program, project goals and budget to ensure the designer isn’t working toward an unrealistic or imaginary budget only to absorb redesign costs down the road.Competing objectives between owner and architect can also make this outwardly seem an unfair arrangement. An architect seeking to reduce construction costs for an owner actually reduces his or her own fee. Equally, drawing and detailing expensive materials is (generally) no more work than doing so for less expensive ones. There are exceptions, of course, as some more expensive systems actually do require more design thinking and drawing. For these reasons clients and architects alike shy away from constructions costs as the sole governing fee structure.
