Voice of Architecture 2022

Panel Recording | Survey Results | Press Release­

On February 10th AIA Tampa Bay Hosted the fourth 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 included­­­­2022 Chapter President Jerel McCants, AIA, Casey Ellison from EWI Construction, Rachael Brown from Bank of Tampa and Jason Jensen, AIA from WJ Architects.

The survey respondents totaled 94 area architects comprised of firm principals and managers. Nearly all the respondents were from Hillsborough County or Pinellas County, 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 third 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 the years to come.
