January 31, 2023
The 44th Deltek Clarity Architecture & Engineering Survey is Open

It’s essential to stay up-to-date on the state of the industry, especially when planning for your firm’s future. Whether you are looking to invest in an innovative solution, improve firm profitability or revisit staffing needs, understanding current industry challenges and trends will be helpful in setting your firm up for success.

Last year’s Deltek Clarity Architecture & Engineering Industry Study reported that 34% of respondents planned to invest in augmented/virtual reality, specifically related to project execution. In addition, top challenges for A&E firms included staffing and retention, with nearly half (44%) of respondents indicating it was their top challenge. Is the landscape of the A&E industry changing this year? How are other firms preparing for a possible new set of challenges? By participating in the survey, you will receive a complimentary scorecard to benchmark your firm against other industry leaders across several key performance indicators (KPIs).

This industry-leading resource is not possible without input from firms like yours. The survey is now open through March 13 to firms of all sizes willing to share their insights, metrics and perspectives.

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this go-to resource for A&E leaders across North America. Deltek Clarity is the industry’s longest-running survey and is produced in collaboration with the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) Canada, American Institute of Architects (AIA), and Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS).
