Know . . . Plan . . . Compete . . .

Having access to accurate information is an essential component for your business to succeed. The American Institute of Architects generate the monthly Architecture Billings Index (ABI), a leading construction economic indicator that offers just that --- quality, authoritative information to support your forecasting need.

Statistical analysis demonstrates that information provided by architecture firms on trends in their billings is highly correlated with the eventual nonresidential construction activity, with leads of up to one year.

For the low price of $199, you will receive 12 months of the Architecture Billings Index, including an ABI index spreadsheet, four regional indexes, and a narrative summary.

As an added bonus, ABI subscribers will also receive the Consensus Construction Forecast twice annually. Contact James Chu at for more information.

This information is consistently reported by major media outlets, such as The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, as a gauge for how the design and construction industry is doing.
