I agree with Kevin. Direct proximity to the capital transaction, such as is the case with estate brokers and, indeed, any other similar profession, brings its substantial rewards.

Architects foolishly put themselves at one remove from the process tying themselves into construction costs and acting, in financial terms, as a subcontractor.

Architects, through their work, bring considerable added value to clients' projects, way beyond construction cost, consequently the fee should be paid as a measure of that added value.

Catch the professional institutes pressing for this? Excuse me!

Oh, yeah: it's the same in Europe.
