June 2012

[ Page 2 of 5 ]

By Laura Mirviss

HOW TO USE THIS TABLE

Companies are ranked by revenue (in millions of dollars) for architectural services performed in 2011. This data also appears in the Top 500 Design Firms list produced by our sister publication, Engineering News-Record; unlike our ranking, that list includes engineering-exclusive firms.

Data is collected by Dodge Data & Analytics’s Research and Analytics group. To participate in next year’s survey, contact Gary Tulacz at gary.tulacz@construction.com.

Key to how firms classify themselves:

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