AIA Compensation Report cites architect’s salary minimal increase since 2011

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Compensation Report, compiled from a survey of U.S. architecture firms, outlines information on how the profession is faring as well as compensation data for 39 architecture firm positions in 28 states, 28 metro areas and 14 cities.

The AIA Compensation Report cites problems from the “Great Recession” as still challenging to U.S. architecture firms, however, the economy improvement has benefitted the architectural industry as well as the construction sector.

Architecture firms report an increased revenue of almost 11% in 2012 from 2011 levels, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures, and payrolls have reflected this change. In mid-2011, architecture firms hit a low, but then have seen gradual improvement since then. According to figures provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, payroll employment has increased about 3% between mid-2011 and the end of 2012.

The report takes into account the size of architectural firms and the experience levels of employees. During the downturn, many less experienced architectural positions were eliminated. Some of the current average compensation figures may reflect a share of more experienced and highly compensated positions. The average compensation for architecture positions increased only 0.7% per year compounded between 2008 and 2011, however, growth increased to only 1.1% per year between 2011 and 2013. This figure includes base salary, overtime, bonuses and incentive compensation..

Prescient platform for AEC

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

In an article in the Wall Street Journal,  it was announced that a software and structural system manufacturing company, Prescient, will debut its integrated and standardized AEC platform at the 2013 American Institute of Architecture (AIA) National Convention, June 20-23 in Denver.

Prescient’s platform works toward streamlining the AEC process for multi-unit buildings such as apartments, condos, senior and assisted living communities, hotels, and student and military dormitories. The software will integrate design and engineering of its framing system with project plans during the architectural design process and generates a bill of materials back to Prescient’s production facility for design-to-production manufacturing. From that information, Prescient can deliver and install the panelized structural system.

Robotic welding is used by Prescient’s manufacturing process to achieve high throughput efficiencies and very tight tolerances. This integrates engineering, architecture, manufacturing and construction into the panelized process.
