American Institute of Architects
September 24, 2018

Though the end of summer normally sees an easing in billings, the August Architectural Billings Index, compiled by the American Institute of Architects, registered its second highest reading of the year at 54.2. The increase included the commercial/industrial segment, which rose to 53.6.

Southern firms lead the country with a strong ABI score. The Midwest and West also registered healthy scores, while billings for the Northeast dropped, having experienced declines for a majority of 2018.
