Since the architect does not have a contractual relationship with the construction company, it is not bound by the profits and value standards of the construction company.
We will be close to you as an independent expert.
Therefore, it is possible to build an uncompromising building at a reasonable price.
It seems that it will be expensive if you often ask an architect, but that is not the case.

In the case of a construction shop or a house maker, the design fee is often recorded as a construction cost.
