The AIA is conducting an initiative regarding current compensation practices in the industry, which involves comparing various compensation models to project type, size, and delivery methods. The AIA has hired The Rickinson Group, an independent third party market research firm to assist with this effort. If you are a designer, constructor, or owner with recent built project experience we would like to request your participation in an online market research survey. Please follow the link at the bottom of the page to be taken to the survey. We ask that you complete the survey by September 12th, 2008. Because this survey is being conducted by an independent third party, you can be assured that your responses are strictly confidential and will only be reported in aggregate form only. Note that this project is being conducted under the guidance of the AIA’s counsel to ensure compliance with antitrust issues. Survey results will be used to inform a guide to compensation models for teams in a transformed industry, which will be publicly available from the AIA at no cost by year end 2008.
To complete the survey,
please click on the link below, or paste the link into your web browser. In appreciation for your participation, you will be entered into a drawing to win one of five $100 American Express Gift Checks. You will be asked near the end of the survey for your email address in order to be entered into the drawing for the gift checks. Winners will be notified via email. The drawing is managed by The Rickinson Group; your identity will be kept confidential and will not be revealed to the survey sponsor.
