We needed new architectural site and floor plans for our daycare center. We hired Mr. Mackey and he was wonderful. I met with Mackey and he was on time and always professional. He went over the old plans and drawings and listened to everything I had to say about what I wanted and how I wanted the layout to be. Mr. Mackey drafted up plans that were perfect and I would highly recommend him to others.

Early in 2014, I was in the market for architectural services. I had very limited capital, so price was a very important consideration. Other considerations were that the firm be a small one that would give me personal attention. He has been extremely diligent and very transparent about costs as they were incurred. He has been extremely detail-conscious, educating himself about the odd codes involved in brewery design, as well as interacting regularly on my behalf with the City of St. Paul. This has saved me a ton of time and headaches. Dennis delivered needed drawings and modifications with short deadlines, several times. I will use Dennis again without hesitation, when we (hopefully) expand in a couple of years. Further, I would recommend him to anyone looking for an architect. — Kathleen C​., Owner, Sidhe Brewing Co., St. Paul, MN ​

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
