*Methodology:


The annual business survey of Interior Design Healthcare Giants ranks the largest design firms by healthcare design fees for the 12-month period from July 2013 through June 2014. Healthcare design fees include those attributed to:


1. All healthcare interiors work.


2. All aspects of a firm’s healthcare design practice, from strategic planning and programming to design and project management.


3. Fees paid to a firm for work performed by employees and independent contractors who are full-time staff equivalent.


Healthcare design fees do not include revenues paid to a firm and remitted to subcontractors that are not considered full-time staff equivalent. For example, certain firms attract work that is subcontracted to a local firm. The originating firm may collect all the fees and retain a management or generation fee, paying the remainder to the performing firm. The amounts paid to the latter are not included in fees of the collecting firm when determining its ranking. Additionally, where applicable, all percentages are based on responding Giants, not their total number. The data was compiled and analyzed by the Interior Design market research staff, led by Wing Leung, research director.
