Ladies, question please. Did your architects charge you VAT on top of their 10% fee?

Yes in my case VAT was inclusive and 20% fee of the total amount not just 10%.

Hi Everyone!

The standard design and construction rate (from 2010 and as of today) of residential dwellings ranges from 22K to 27K per square meter. Meaning for example if your lot is 80 sq.m., 70% of that lot can be covered or paved. So, if we’re rooting for a mid level design we can opt for 25K x 56sq m (the 70% of the total lot area) = Php1.4m (just for one floor). When I say standard, this already includes the design, supervision, labour, actual built house with electrical, plumbing and sanitary fixtures plus the finishes which are tiles, average type doors and windows, wall coverings, built in cabinets and the like.

If we only need design or blueprint, these vary according to your contract. Some architects offers a per sq. meter charge which would range from 2,000 to 5,000 according to your design requirements. Some offers per set or “pakyaw” usually 10-12% of the total construction cost (meaning the whole package from schematics, design, complete working drawings and estimate), project management is also charged differently, these may be according to how many times he or she is required to visit the site and check. But, I would suggest to get your architect to manage the construction since most of the time the contractors only do what’s convenient instead of following the design.

Terms of Payment:
20-30% upon signing of the contract
30-40% upon submission of schematics
30-50% upon submission and approval of the final design
You may also put in the contract that the remaining 10% will be given upon completion of the whole construction project so as to check if the design you paid was followed.

Please note that these are only the standard (usual) rates, there are also some that gives it at 30-50% less. Given that, let’s asses first if makakadiscount ba talaga tayo o may extra bonus problems na kasama.

I hope I was able to help 

Oh wow! Why so expensive? I was quoted only 10% of total construction cost just like what archeamor mentioned above. I'm just wondering about the VAT kasi that's another 12% (tama ba?)

Archeamor, sis any idea how much the charge for construction/project management? Just a ballpark figure will help. Thanks!

Hi mama squeak!! :)

Yes there's VAT but that should only be 12% of the 10% and not 10%+12%=22%. Meaning if the architect charged you for 100K the total payment plus VAT will be 112K.

Not unless, your architect is also your contractor. Only the contractor can charge you the 12% VAT for the total construction cost not the architect.

And oh, please don't forget to ask for receipt.

Project Management is usually another 3% to 5% of the total const cost. So if it's design plus project management it will be 13% to 15% in total, that's one. Option 2 is you may have payment agreements per visit, that will range from 1,000 to 3,000 per visit. Just be sure to have a contract that he/she will be liable for any unfollowed design made by the contractor. Meaning it's the architect who's directly reporting and responsible to you and not the contractor. This way, your only talking to one person which is better.

PS: While the construction is on-going. Ask for a log book and check it daily. This will show all that's happening on the site even when you're not there. ie. Who are the laborers that are present, at what time they finished the bedroom wall and even the time of arrival of the architect and the contractor head it also shows your time of arrival and departure. :) I'm telling you this because all alterations on the approved design shall be signed by you. For example, they used blue paint instead of green or they used tiles instead of bricks even if it's already finished or even if it's approved by your architect if you don't like it and they doesn't have any document showing you approved it, you have ALL the rights to ask the architect to have it changed without any additional cost. You may even charge them for the delay.

I hope this helps :)

^Thanks so much! Great advise too on the logbook. Hubby and I are still on the look out for an architect based in Bohol or Cebu. Hirap din maghanap since most of them are loaded with big projects (resorts).

This is exactly in my case. He's the Architect and at the same time the contractor

Hello. Is it ok na kami ang mag-design ng gusto naming ipa-construct na house then we'll just seek the advice of a licensed engineer and have him/her sign it? May mga ideas kasi kami limited lang funds namin and right now but actually we will also be applying for the construction loan kaya kailangan ng building plan.

I read na pwede din kami lumapit sa city engineers sa munisipyo para magpapirma ng plan... is that right? Taga-Laguna kami (Biñan) baka may mare-refer kayo.

Thanks in advance.

Hi swiTsuplada,

Yup, that's possible. though you have to know the proper setbacks according to city regulations, as well as the housing standards i.e. min. window opening, floor to ceiling height and etc. :)

Do you already have someone who's going to draft and do the cad files and blueprint for you?

Hello po. Thanks for the reply.

So far may mga kausap kami pero wala pa kaming napagdedesiyunan. How much ba usually fee ng nagda-draft?

Hi swiTsuplada,

It's usually  1000-2000 per sheet. So if you'll have 20 sheets it will range from Php20,000 to Php40,000.

Hi hyder0926


yes, 52sq m is workable! Average construction cost here in the Philippines is 20,000 o 25,000 per sq m. That already includes materials and labor.

Hi Sis Archeamor,

So that will be 1.3M for a 52sqm house.. will be the house ready for move in with standard finish? or with a better finish like wooden doors, wood flooring, granite counter tops, wood kitchen cabinets?

Thanks for your reply.

Hello mga sis..
Baka may kilala kayo na pede kami magpadesign with cost of billing materials and signature needed.. At kung magkano.

Balak ko kase magpadesign muna tapos magapply sa bank for loan. kaya lang yung highest loanable amount sana na bank ang pasukan namin kase ipapasok ko din sana sa contractor yun.
pano kaya..
