The Entrepreneur Architect Business Trends Survey 2014
Earlier this year, we asked the Entrepreneur Architect community to share details about who they are, what they do, where they do it and how they are getting it all done.
The information gathered from the Entrepreneur Architect Business Trends Survey is informative, interesting, somewhat surprising and at times disturbing.
More than 650 people responded, sharing private information about their personal lives, revealing valuable details about their firms and exposing current trends in the profession for small firm architects.
Do you want to know…
- How much money other architects are earning?
- What type of fee structure small firm architects are using?
- What is the range of construction cost for small firm architects? (We’re responsible for some rather large projects.)
- How most clients are finding their architects?
- How many small firms are offering construction services?
- Which actions small firm architects think will most improve the architecture profession? (Listen up AIA National… only 25% of respondents have even heard of Repositioning.)
- The business decisions architects are planning to pursue in the next 12 months?
- How many firms are using a “virtual office” business model? (This is the future of small firm practice according to the survey.)
- How many firms are offering paid family leave?
- Which software small firm architects are using to prepare architectural drawings?
- How many are using BIM?
