The Architectural Billings Index started fall strong, posting another month of growth at 51.1 for September. Compiled by the American Institute of Architects, the index has remained positive in 2018, an indicator of the strong financial situation at architectural firms, analysts say. Regionally, billings for Northeast firms continued to ease in September, while Midwestern and Southern firms lead in billings.

Billings for the commercial sector fell about 3 points to 50.8, part of a softening trend of the last few months.
