How We Do It
We operate on a billable hour basis much like an accountant, engineer, or attorney. Our clients can use us for a single hour consult just to kick the tires on a project, or they can involve us extensively throughout the planning process to ensure their interests are being looked after. We typically don’t recommend our services for small projects, because our fee would likely be disproportionate to the value we add to the project. On large projects, however, in addition to simplifying and organizing the process, we can often identify sufficient savings to offset our fee and then some. Even without any savings, our fee would typically represent less than 2% of the overall budget for a large project. At this time, we do not sell blocks of time, primarily because we want to earn our client's trust and business. If we cannot add sufficient value, we would encourage a client to discontinue our service.
