Abstract: The basis of compensation of Consulting Engineers is the employment of skilled, experienced talent, and the value to the Client of honest, unbiased opinions and service. Charges of Engineering Services: An Epitome of the Report on Charges and Method of Making Charges for Professional Services serves as a manual for the engineer, guiding him/her through compensation even though the requirements for engineering advice and service may vary widely. The cost of consulting engineering service varies with the education, experience, and professional standing of the Engineer; its value to the Client and the character of the service to be rendered; that is, whether advice is desired on preliminary developments, or the later design and construction, or both.

Subject Headings: Consulting services | Value engineering | Client relationships | Professional practice | Engineering education | Employment | Construction costs
