How Much Does an Architect Cost in México?

To find out how much an architect will cost, we are going to divide their fees into two stages:

  1. Design 
  2. Construction
First I’m going to explain how much is charged for the design, because both are charged differently.

How Much Does an Architect Charge to Design a House?

We charge $35 USD per square meter for design. To make it clearer I will give an example:

Suppose you want to build a 200m² house in Mexico City and you want us to make the design for you, we would charge you $7,000 USD

There are other factors that could enter into the cost of the design such as if the project is more specialized or larger (e.g., the need for a master plan or for the design of exteriors and gardens).

But remember, we can only know how much it would cost to build your home once the design is finalized.

An architect in México charges 15% to 25% of the direct cost of the work. 

Let me explain in more detail:

The construction of a house generates costs of material, labor, and use of tools; the sum of these expenses is known as «direct cost«.

Suppose that the direct cost of building your house is $200,000 USD, in this case, the final cost you would have for the construction would be between $230,000 USD and $250,000 USD.

We quantify all the materials that will be needed to build and the labor that will be needed.

We then search our database called neodata and to obtain the prices for each constructive element like: columns, floors, foundations, walls, roofs, etc.
