Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What among the following should the Architect's fee NOT be based?

    • A.

      Project Construction Cost

    • B.

      Client's Profile Directory

    • C.

      Contractor's Fee

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Client's Profile Directory
    Explanation
    The architect's fee should not be based on the client's profile directory. The client's profile directory refers to information about the client's background, experience, or reputation. This information is not directly related to the project construction cost or the contractor's fee, which are more practical and tangible factors that can influence the architect's fee. The architect's fee should be based on the complexity, scope, and size of the project, as well as the architect's expertise and experience. The client's profile directory may provide some insight into the client's preferences or requirements, but it should not be the sole determining factor for the architect's fee.

    Rate this question:

    A client wanted your service for his new house with a Total Project Cost of Three Million (3,000,000.00) pesos. What is the percentage of your professional fee for the Design Service?

    • A.

      5%

    • B.

      6%

    • C.

      10%

    • D.

      15%

    Correct Answer
    B. 6%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 6%. This means that the professional fee for the design service is 6% of the total project cost, which is three million pesos. To calculate the professional fee, you multiply the total project cost by the percentage (6/100) or 0.06. Therefore, the professional fee for the design service would be 180,000 pesos (3,000,000 x 0.06 = 180,000).
