Does Anyone Have An Inexpensive Architect That They Use For Basic Drawings?

Does anyone have an inexpensive architect that they use for basic drawings?

We are putting a maglock in a school and the inspector wants an architect for the following:

The magnetic locks are a bigger issue. You need to get an architect involved for this work. Magnetic lock systems are considered "Access-controlled egress doors" by the 2009 International Building Code - NJ Edition. Access-controlled egress doors need to comply with Section 1008.1.4.4, items 1-6, of the 2009 IBC-NJ Edition. An architect or engineer needs to provide a floor plan showing the proposed locations of the magnetic-locks, and specify all the requirements outlined in the IBC.

The school sent us to an architect that they know and he gave a price of $1500 - $2000. That feels a bit high for me.

Thanks
