The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has selected, Curtis Fentress, FAIA, a designer, Les Shepherd, AIA, a government agency head, and Ken Greenberg, Assoc.

The Thomas Jefferson Award recognizes excellence in architectural advocacy and achievement in three categories: Private-sector architects who have established a portfolio of accomplishment in the design of architecturally distinguished public facilities; public-sector architects who manage or produce quality design within their agencies; and public officials or other individuals who by their role of advocacy have furthered the public's awareness and/or appreciation of design excellence.

After Some Encouraging Signs, Architecture Billings Index Drops Substantially Print E-mail
Saturday, 23 January 2010 07:52
High level of inquires for new projects, but competitive marketplace is adversely impacting billings

Following its highest mark since August 2008, the Architecture Billings Index (ABI) dropped more than three points in November. As a leading economic indicator of construction activity, the ABI reflects the approximate nine to twelve month lag time between architecture billings and construction spending. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) reported the November ABI rating was 42.8, down from 46.1 in October.  This score indicates a continued decline in demand for design services (any score above 50 indicates an increase in billings). The new projects inquiry score was 58.5, the same mark as in October.

US: Another Steep Decline in Nonresidential Construction Activity Projected for 2010 Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 January 2010 10:20
Modest increase in spending possible by 2011

Despite signs that the overall U.S. economy is beginning to improve, nonresidential construction spending is expected to decrease by 13.4 percent in 2010 with a marginal increase of 1.8 percent in 2011 in inflation adjusted terms. Commercial and industrial projects will continue to see the most significant decrease in activity. Thanks, in part, to federal stimulus spending, institutional building categories will fare better over this period. These are highlights from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) semi-annual Consensus Construction Forecast, a survey of the nation’s leading construction forecasters.
