For foreign clients and companies
On behalf of NRC, thank you for your interest in our work.
We are looking for partnerships with both companies and individuals with whom we can share creative and innovative ideas - small to large, residential to commercial projects, and everything in between.
In this section, we provide an outline of our procedures and a sample contract used for both domestic and overseas work.
PROCEDURAL SUMMARY- ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNING AND PLANNING FEES
FIRST SESSION（INITIAL MEETING）
Location：Tokyo or project country.

※ When the location of the session is outside of Japan, nrc will visit and research the proposed site.

OVERVIEW OF OUR ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNING AND PLANNING SERVICES AND FEES
In addition to our transportation and accommodation expenses, NRC’s architectural designing and planning quotation is generally between 5%～12% of the construction cost: when the construction cost is small, it will be closer to the 12%, when the construction cost is larger it will be closer to 5%.
※ These services and fees are subject to change depending on the project and client’s needs.
We are also able to segment our services, allowing clients to select only those which directly apply to their project. Examples of specific services are given on the next paragraph.
※ Additional costs will arise when NRC must engage with local architectural law and administration procedures outside of Japan.
