FEE SCHEDULE FOR ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS

The Association des ingénieurs-conseils du Québec has reviewed the feeschedule used by its members to negotiate service contracts. This guidebook contains very useful information in terms of both service descriptions and payment methods.

HIGHLIGHTS

The guidebook starts by describing the seven service divisions covered by engineering consultants, as well as the elements they include. The seven divisions are as follows:

  • Consulting Services 
  • Evaluation Assessments 
  • Preliminary Plans & Specifications 
  • Definitive Plans & Specifications 
  • Services Offered During Construction 
  • Services Not Included in the Percentage Calculation Method 
  • Management Services

Secondly, the guidebook explains the three possible fee-calculation methods, i.e. hourly rate method, percentage method or package deal. 

Finally, the document also provides information on documents that clients must provide, billing methods for consulting services, and hourly rates for engineers, technicians and draftsmen.

This guidebook will undoubtedly be a very useful reference document for people who offer engineering services, as well as for their clients.
