A draftsperson creates blueprints for designing new homes and additions to existing ones. He prepares architectural plans and technical drawings. A draftsperson can charge by the hour or by the square metre (see below). A set of plans for a typical 3-bedroom house takes at least 10 hours to complete. The size and the complexity of the project will also have an impact on the price. Hiring a draftsperson to do a simple house plan is still cheaper than having an architect do it—they can charge up to twice as much. Draftsperson costs range between R500 / hour and R900 / hour with an average of R700 / hour.Get quotes!

Most architects will work for either an hourly rate or for a fixed fee based on a percentage of the construction costs. Typical fees range from 5% to 15% of construction costs for new construction, and from 15% to 20% for remodelling. Often it is difficult to estimate the cost of construction. The alternative is to charge per hour. According to SACAP a Registered Professional Architect with more than ten years’ experience, can charge roughly R1 800 per hour. For an architect, expect to pay between R900 / hour and R1800 / hour.Get quotes!
