This is the second annual release of this Engineering and Design Services industry forecast. In 2020, the ACEC Research Institute commissioned a series of studies – the Industry Impact Series – to profile and analyze performance in the Engineering and Design Services Industry (A/E Services). 

This study is updating part of that series which aims to describe, measure, and demonstrate the indispensable partnership between engineering, architects, and other design services to deliver the built environment of the United States. 

The built environment refers to all human-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging in scale from buildings and parks/green space to neighborhoods and cities including their supporting infrastructure, such as water supply or energy networks.
