Firm Survey Report

Firm Survey 2020

The AIA Firm Survey Report is the only report that covers the full complexity of firms that power the architecture and design profession. With data from nearly 1,000 firms, this essential resource includes metrics to measure practice, evaluate performance, and set strategy. You’ll discover trends in firm billings and finances, construction sectors served, international work, and practice and technology, including:

  • Why there is likely to be a significant increase in retrofits due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • How firms are using research to inform practice and R&D tax credits.
  • The share of firms using BIM and energy modeling for billable projects and how much revenue comes from these projects.
  • Construction contract value for buildings designed to meet or exceed resilience code minimum and/or a performance or sustainability standard such as LEED, WELL, or RELi.
  • How diversity in the architecture profession compares to the national workforce.
