Voice of Architecture 2020
On February 5th AIA Tampa Bay Hosted the second annual Economic Outlook Forum to Discuss the results of the Voice of Architecture Survey. The panel discussion was guided by Kyle Parks from B2 Communications and includedAngela Hendershot, AIA - Rowe Architects, Inc., Stephen Johnson, AIA - Harvard Jolly, Keith Greminger, AIA - Kimley Horn, and Jillian Bandes - Bandes Construction.
The survey respondents totaled 71 area architects, half of whom are principals or managers. Nearly all the respondents were from Hillsborough County (78 percent) or Pinellas County (16 percent), though many of the architects in the two counties work on projects throughout the region.
Tampa Bay area architects continue to be highly optimistic about the region’s development-related economy in the longer term, and for the second consecutive year, Tampa Bay’s architecture firms are seeing a continued increase in demand for their services, are planning on hiring more employees, and are predicting substantial revenue growth – all signs that real estate development, a key driver of the region’s economy, will continue to be hot in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
