Architects fees

Steve Potter
last year

Last year we received planning permission to replace a conservatory with a sun room and knock through to the existing kitchen.
To get to this stage we have paid to the architect fees for:
- survey £650 + VAT
- design proposal for planning £1500 + VAT
For the next stage the architect quoted 3 stages:
1) Prepare building regs drawings £2000 + VAT
2) Prepare tender documentation £2000 + VAT
3) Prepare and administer a JCT contract £2500 + VAT
What I'd like to know is if these fees seem reasonable? We estimate the building work to cost somewhere in region of £100k.
What I'd also like to know is whether it is worth paying for stages 2) or 3)? If I'm going to be tendering the project, would builders be able to tender from the building regs drawings?
Thanks for your help
