After all, with a big budget you can afford paying the services of the company, which employees are real experts and which portfolio is more than impressive.

About prices

What is pricing process in this market? What do you need to know before planning the budget for repair? In this area, it is common to establish the prices for work performance on per m² basis, and prices can fluctuate within $ 10-100 range for design and $ 8-30 range for the architecture. As you can see, the range is quite wide. The cost will also depend on the complexity of the work, materials and skills of the designer or architect.
