HOW TO USE THIS TABLE

The companies included in Architectural Record's list of the Top 250 Firms are ranked according to revenue for architectural services performed in 2009 in $ millions. The list is compiled from a survey conducted for Engineering News-Record’s annual Top 500 Design Firms Sourcebook. The McGraw-Hill Companies publishes both Architectural Record and ENR.

Key to how firms classify themselves:

A = Architect
AE = Architect-Engineer
AP = Architect Planner
EA = Engineer-Architect
AEC = Architect-Engineer-Contractor
(not all combinations listed)
