PROFESSIONAL SCALES

The information below is given as a guidance only, and is based on minimum recommended fees as prescribed by law in Kenya. There may be differences in the market due to scale and complexity of a particular project, and in the specialization and/or experience level of the consultant.

ARCHITECT – Professional fees: 6% of the total cost of construction + 16% V.A.T.

The Architect is the primary mover and head of the design and development team of the project whose duties among others include: giving advice to the Client; interpreting the Client’s brief; preparation of architectural drawings for purposes of Client approval, local authority approval, other consultant’s input and for construction purposes. The Architect is also duty bound to undertake pre-contract, contract and post-contract project administration. The scale of fees is based on that stipulated by Cap 525 of the Laws of Kenya that govern the practices of Architects and Quantity Surveyors, viz.

Reimbursement Costs: These will be costs incurred directly by the Architect in the performance of his duties and will include, but not necessarily limited to the following: mileage, accommodation out of town, lithographic costs for printing and photocopy, postage, telephone and fax, etc.

QUANTITY SURVEYOR (QS) – Professional fees: 3 1⁄2 % of the total cost of construction + 16% V.A.T.

The QS prepares project cost and budgetary estimates under the direction of the Architect. Based on all Consultants’ input the QS will prepare both itemized quantities and commensurate costs pertaining to the project throughout the development of the project from inception to completion. The scale of fees for QS’s is also based on Cap 525, thus.

Reimbursement Costs: Same provisions as for the Architect.

INTERIOR DESIGNER – Professional fees: 12% of the total cost of interior design works + 16% V.A.T.

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT – Professional fees: In accordance with the scale of professional charges of the Institute of Landscape Architects.

This consultancy service involves the design of external architectural landscape features that include gardens, gazebos, walkways, footbridges, fountains, fishponds, as well as swimming pools and internal paved vehicular movement. Cap 525 still guides the fee structure of the Landscape Architect and is based on the total cost of construction.
