This process helps architects understand the goals, objectives, and requirements of the client, including functional, aesthetic, and budgetary considerations. By gathering this information, architects can develop a design that meets the specific needs and desires of the client, ensuring a successful and satisfactory outcome. Economic feasibility studies, space management studies, and site selection and analysis are also important pre-design services, but they do not specifically focus on documenting the needs of the client for use in the design process.

This method ensures that the Architect's compensation is directly proportional to the expenses incurred for personnel involved in the project. It provides a fair and transparent approach to compensating the Architect's services, taking into account the resources and effort required for the pre-design phase. This method also incentivizes the Architect to efficiently manage personnel expenses and deliver cost-effective solutions.

    • A.

      P50,000.00

    • B.

    • D.

      P200,000.00

    Correct Answer
    C. P150,000.00
    Explanation
    The Architect should bill the client P150,000.00 upon completion of the Schematic Design Phase.

The bill for the Schematic Design Phase is typically a percentage of the total estimated cost, and in this case, it is 1.5% of P10,000,000.00 which equals P150,000.00.

      Value-added tax

    Correct Answer

Among the options given, the value-added tax (VAT) is a tax that is typically imposed on the final consumer of a product or service. In this case, the Owner would be the final consumer of the Architect's services, so they would be responsible for paying the VAT.
