2008 Valuation Survey
Do you know how much your AEC firm is worth? If you're an owner of an AEC firm, you can't risk not knowing the value of your business. Whether it's for external purposes, such as a firm sale or merger, or internal purposes, such as ownership transition or ESOP purposes, all firm owners should know what their investments are worth.
The 2008 Valuation Survey of AEC Firms is the definitive resource for helping you find out! With the survey data included in this report and Zweig Group's exclusive Z-Formulas, you'll be able to quickly and easily learn what your firm is worth.
The 2008 Valuation Survey of AEC Firms will help you:
- Use Zweig Group's exclusive Z-Formulas to quickly find out how much your firm is worth
- Use over 225 case studies to make reliable comparisons of value between your firm and others in the industry
- Find out what makes one firm more valuable than another
- See how growth rate, staff size, firm age, and other factors affect firm value

The information in this report is based on over 225 actual valuations of AEC firms! Each year, Zweig Group conducts a nationwide survey to identify design and environmental firms that use an internal formula for valuation, that have been merged or acquired, or that have been appraised by an independent valuation consultant. These firms supply us with information on their type of business, revenues, profits, growth, assets, and so on. Then, for each firm we calculate six different value ratios (e.g., TIC value per employee, TIC value/net revenue, etc.) and compare these by firm size, type, region, reason for valuation, and more. The result is rock-solid comparative data relied upon by thousands of firms.
A case study for every valuation is included so you can compare your firm's statistics to other firms just like your own. You'll also find a chapter on valuation practices and ways to enhance value for design and environmental consulting firms!
Plus, you'll also get Zweig Group's exclusive Z-Formulas. For more than a decade, thousands of design and environmental firm leaders, accountants to the AEC industry, and professional business appraisers alike have been using Zweig Group's valuation data and Z-Formulas to determine firm value. Simply input seven factors: staff size, net revenue, backlog, EBITDA, profit, book value, and interest bearing debt, and you'll quickly get a rough value for any design or environmental firm.
