Architecture Billings Healthy in April

May 25, 2018

Business Conditions Remain Strong in the West

The Architecture Billings Index rose for the seventh consecutive month in April, making modest gains from the previous month. The April ABI score was 52.0 (any score over 50 indicates billings growth).

Activity was strongest in the West, with a slight decline at Midwest firms.

“Although growth in regional design activity was concentrated at firms in the sunbelt, there was balanced growth so far this year across all major construction sectors,” said AIA Chief Economist Kermit Baker, Hon. AIA, PhD.
