ENR Southeast has seen a strong response to this year's Southeast Top Design Firms survey so far, with more than 100 firms replying by the initial deadline of March 28. While we are extending the deadline to April 4—with a goal of at least matching last year's response total of 135 firms—the early returns show a mix of revenue gains, stalls and decline, and generally indicating a steady market.
For example, here's one (fairly random) bit of data. A year ago, n March 2021, when we previewed last year's Top Design Firms ranking, just over 100 firms had responded by the initial deadline, with those architectural and engineering firms collectively reporting roughly $4.5 billion in revenue. By comparison, by the initial deadline for the 2022 Southeast Top Design Firms ranking, slightly more than 100 Southeast firms have again responded, with these companies collectively reporting slightly more than $4.8 billion in regional revenue.
The still-ongoing* Southeast Top Design Firms survey—one of 11 ENR regional surveys—offers a glimpse into how architectural and engineering firms working in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Puerto Rico performed during 2021.
EDITOR's NOTE: * There's still time to participate in ENR Southeast's Top Design Firms survey, which will remain open until April 4. To participate in the survey, please click here at your next opportunity. An important note, however, because of space limitations for ENR Southeast’s print edition, it’s possible that some firms listed here may not be included in the print ranking as a result of their revenue totals.
With that, here's our preview of this year's respondents, listed alphabetically.
