Each year, PSMJ's A/E/C Circle of Excellence honors the highest performing firms in our annual A/E Financial Performance Benchmark Survey, based on a diverse set of 13 key metrics.
Rather than focus only on near-term growth rates or profit margins, which are not always the best indicators of solid financial and operating performance, the Circle of Excellence benchmark data is based on the top 20 percent of firms with the best multi-dimensional overall business performance.
