The 2023 ACEC-BC Consulting Engineers Fee Guideline is now available!
Since 1976, the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies British Columbia (ACEC-BC) has been the voice of consulting engineering companies in BC. Our purpose is to advance the business interests of consulting engineering firms in BC, through advocacy, creating opportunity for collaboration and building profile for members and the industry.
For more than 20-years ACEC-BC has produced a comprehensive fee guideline to support firms practicing consulting engineering in BC and BC based clients in determining appropriate minimum fees for services.
This guideline provides information on suggested minimum hourly rates for consulting practice by engineers and technologists. The guideline recognizes average fees across the province and does not consider local or specialty markets where conditions may support higher fees.
