According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Architecture jobs were the worst hit in 2009. In 2009 the number of people employed in architecture dropped by 17.8% falling from 230,000 to 189,000. The construction slow down hit architecture jobs the worst but carpenters were a close second and construction workers were seventh.
Thankfully due to our loyal clients, our excellent staff and our flexibility 2009 was a good year for EVstudio. In 2009 we were able to announce the opening of our Texas office offering architecture and engineering from Copperas Cove. We were also able to avoid lay offs and actually add two additional Colorado licensed architects. 2009 saw the growth of our structural department under the leadership of Jim Houlette, PE. We also designed and saw dozens of projects constructed for our clients.
Thanks again to the great clients, staff and consultants who we work with and we’re looking forward to a productive 2010.
