THE TOP 500 DESIGN FIRMS : ACQUISITIONS SURGE IN GROWING MARKET

This guide presents the top 500 design firms in the U.S. in 2004, ranking companies according to total revenue for their design services. The type of firm is noted, followed by figures indicating the market percentage by industry in the following categories: general building, manufacturing, power, water supply, sewerage/solid waste, industrial process, petroleum, transportation, hazardous waste, and telecommunications. Market analysis shows that the transportation market captured 20.4% of the total market, coming in second to the building market, which came in at 22.1% of the market total. An overview of the transportation market reveals that designers continue to wait for a final reauthorization bill for federal funding. Several state departments of transportation have moved ahead with their own transportation programs, thus putting them in a more advantageous position for leveraging federal funding one reauthorization takes place. While the health of the airlines remains a concern, major airport projects are progressing.
