Structural Engineers Guideline Fees and Costs


Structural Engineers Fees are often a concern for Clients, this may be because they can vary so very much, or because they had not understood that an engineer would be required.


As a Consulting practice our Director is professionally qualified; the practice holds valid Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.


AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, are available for meetings during the working day between (9am to 17pm) and evenings or weekends by prior arrangement, to look after and deal with any Civil & Structural Engineering Building Construction Design Services.


Our usual charge out rates are as follows:

  • Director [for site visits/meetings] £60/hr  
  • Chartered Structural Engineer £50/hr
  • Assistant Engineer £40/hr  
  • Technician/Draughtsperson £20/hr 
  • Administration £12/hr  


It is necessary for AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, to visit site to take notes of any existing details before AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, can advise further.


Once AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, visited the site AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, will prepare a response in line with the quotation form that you have completed and AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, will list the activities and confirm the total required number of time and fee for the work plus the time frame for the completion of the work, and will wait for your acceptance before we comence any work. Please note if we visited the site and discussed the requirement with you and agreed the way forward, and if  after the meeting you decided not to award us the contract then, we would expect you to cover our travelling  expenses. However if we are awarded the contract then the travelling expenses for visiting the site will be free of charge.



We would advise great caution about any 'engineer' who doesn't need visit to site to properly understand the extent of work involved specially when dealing with the existing structures /building - they'll be relying on you to tell them roof and floor span directions and inform them of other crucial matters [eg other beams and walls and supports] that will affect the design.


For a more accurate fee proposal AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, would need a reasonable set of Architectural drawings or at least a meeting on site. AlphaTotas Structural Engineer Bristol, can arrange to prepare drawings for you, or for more involved and complicated schemes you may need to appoint a architectural consultant directly to prepare these. For a list of Architectural Consultants we could recomend or help you to find one.
