Data & Insights

AEC Industry Overview

EFCG’s AEC Industry Overview is a comprehensive look at the latest trends and performance of the Architecture, Engineering, and Consulting Industry. Each year, EFCG collects proprietary financial and operational data from 300+ firms and analyzes that data so firms in the industry can make sense of how they compare on key metrics (ex: Growth, Profitability, Turnover) and understand what factors will play an increasingly important role in the future of the industry (ex: Technology, ESG, M&A). This document provides a true snapshot of what is happening in this space and offers critical questions that leadership teams can build into their conversations.

Peer Benchmarking Analysis

EFCG’s Peer Benchmarking Analysis compares an AEC firm to its peers across a variety of metrics, from profitability and revenue growth to business development, turnover, technology, sustainability, and overhead. We typically use at least two peer groups: one is the “primary peer group,” usually aimed at identifying a company’s closest competitors, whether by revenue size or market sector, and the second is the “alternative peer group,” which aims to identify firms which are similar to the target company, but perhaps in a different way, like customer sector or geographic location.

Given that the analysis compares your firm to peers across key business metrics, you can measure how competitively your company is performing. EFCG will also assess whether your company’s metrics align with its business model and goals. Based on this assessment, your company’s leadership team will have valuable information to inform short-term operations and long-term strategy.
