Prosperous firms are defined by success across their financial metrics, but also by:

  • service to design excellence, innovative thinking, and sustainability commitment
  • service to the community and profession
  • advancement of a diverse and supportive workplace culture

The path to prosperity can take on many forms, but regardless of how a firm wants to define itself, benchmarking against peers is a critical way to evaluate a firm’s success. And with architecture firms returning to profitability, this is the ideal time to see how your firm compares.

Use the AIA’s Firm Benchmarking Tool to compare your firm against the profession.

Compare your firm

Data in the AIA Firm Benchmarking Tool are drawn from the AIA’s Firm Survey Report, which reflects insights from over 2,300 architecture firms. Going back more than 30 years, the AIA Firm Survey provides the only comprehensive assessment of what is occurring in architecture practices today, including detailed information on firm billings, profits, client retention rates, diversity, sustainability, and other firm aspects.
