Archian Design Architect Studio Bacolod City Common Questions for Owners Starting a Building or Construction

1. Question: What is the average cost or rate of a house construction?
As of 2018, the average house construction cost is P22,000-P25,000 per square meter for an average design and P28,000-P35,000 per square meter for a luxurious design, depending on the site location (excluding lighting fixtures, grills, perimeter fence, gate, and landscape). These are based on current construction costs and are meant for projection or reference purposes only. An accurate cost estimate can be determined once the plan and design of the house is completed.

2. Question: What are our Professional Fee?
Yes. Many people ask the wrong question even before the start of the work. I understand their concern. The fees are based on the work to be done.

The work is divided into 2 parts, 1. Design and 2. Construction. We require P20K before starting the design. Progress payments will be paid during different phases of the Design. At the end of design we can accurately asses the detailed Construction Cost.

Before the start of Construction, we require 35% down payment of the Construction cost. The payment cover mobilization until agreed construction targets are achieved. Progress payments are given until the completion of the project.
