#HOW MUCH DOES a 3D RENDERING COST?

One of the most important factors in choosing a 3d rendering studio for your next project is the price. It is important not to get a high quality 3d rendering but also to not pay too much. I’m going to let you in on a few stats regarding average prices and what you should be expecting to get for your money.
.
Above all, the most important thing to remember when hiring a 3d visualisation studio is that generally – 
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR!
.
You simply can’t expect to pay a minimal amount and get a brilliant 3d render. Studios that charge more for their work generally do so because they are more experienced and produce higher quality renderings and 3d animations. Making a great 3d rendering takes a lot of time and expertise – 3d architects who are capable of producing superb looking images deserve to be paid more. In the end, a better quality 3d rendering that looks fantastic and impresses buyers or clients is much more valuable than a rendering of poor quality. Therefore – you get what you paid for.
.
It all depends on your budget and how successful you want your marketing campaign to be. If you want a highly appealing product you will probably need to pay a bit more for a quality 3d rendering studio. If your happy to settle for an image that just displays what your design will look like but probably won’t impress anyone – then you can shop around and simply look for the cheapest price.
.
Now…onto the prices.
.
In a recent worldwide architectural visualisation survey completed by cgarchitect the average price charged for an architecture still image is between $1000 and $2000 US dollars. Note – this is an average price – for extremely high quality 3d renderings you could expect to pay a fair bit more. While a standard 3d animation fetches somewhere between $5000 and $10000. Obviously each studio is different and prices do vary. But generally the studios that are producing really high quality work are charging more.
.
So that’s all well and good but whats the difference between a high quality image and a poor one?
.
Below are some examples of some really high quality images. These are amongst the best you will find anywhere in the world.

As you can see these are very impressive and realistic images. And now for some pretty average 3d renderings!

Clearly the difference is HUGE. The high quality images clearly look more realistic and are much more appealing than the poor quality images. You could expect to pay around $500-1000 per image for these poor quality images (depending on where you go). And for the high quality it could be anywhere from $2000 to $10000 per image.
.
Obviously each 3d visualisation studio is capable of producing a certain standard of work. Some are simply more experienced and more talented than others. You need to do your homework and compare prices and images from each studio you ask for a quote. Then choose the one that provides the best value for money! Simple. Remember – you get what you paid for.

#HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE an ARCHITECH ??

Architects are not just the people who draft plans for a building or addition. When you work with one it means that you have hired them to develop a design, help you find appropriate contractors, guide the entire project through any required approval processes, and checks in on the construction to ensure that all is going accordingly.

Working with an architectural service is generally calculated at 10 – 17% of the total building budget.

Cost breakout

The costs for most architectural work, according to the American Institute of Architects, can be broken down into phases of the work:

Initial interview to determine the scope of the project and to review the client’s needs and wishes. By the end of this meeting a preliminary budget is established;
Subsequent review of proposed work, budget, and outline of architect’s plans – 5 to 10% of established budget.
Schematic design period in which the architect drafts floor plans and elevation drawings, works with any structural engineers (if necessary), and meets with planning agencies to verify any requirements or standards – 10 to 15% of established budget.
Final design period in which the architect finalizes their drawings and incorporates all details about materials and finishes, any fixtures or equipment, and all systems to be incorporated into the structure. At this point the architect begins to serve as the project manager and reviews the plans with any required local agencies while also obtaining necessary permits. (If contractors are to be used it is at this point that they must be selected) – 15 to 20% of established budget.
Finding the contractor is the responsibility of the home or property owner, but the architect will usually serve in an advisory capacity through the selection process and also help the client through the bid review process as well – 5% of established budget.
Completion of construction documents which describe the entire project in great detail. It is at this point that the building permit is usually submitted – 40 to 45% of estimated budget.
Administration of the construction process which is usually done at least once a week, or even more often if the length of the project is not very substantial. This is going to ensure that contractor’s requests for payments are accurate, that any changes by the client are approved, and that all “final” details are corrected or finished by the contractor – 15 to 20% of established budget.
Clearly this is just a very basic outline of the anticipated work that the architect will provide, but it does give a good idea at how much of the responsibility they can manage.
