    2013 Top 100 Giants: Rankings

    While fees-per-employee remained even at $225,000, the value of projects per square foot exploded. In 2011, the rate jumped from $80 to $91; 2012 saw another gain to $97 per square foot. Total square footage rose, too, the reported 716 million being 12 percent higher than the 2012 forecast. Giants expect 726 million more square feet in 2013. (For fun, compare those stats to the 2009 number: 553 million square feet.)


    Interior-designer staff numbers expanded 11 percent in 2012 to a total head count of nearly 12,000. That figure tops the 11,000 designers on staff in prerecession 2008. Another sign of good times: 29 percent of Giants report their biggest challenge is retaining qualified staff (only 15 percent said so last year). As a result, the average designer salary has risen from $65,000 to $70,000. Some 70 percent of Giants worry about recruiting new talent, with each firm planning to hire an additional 33 designers, on average, in 2013. With hourly billing rates rising for individual designers, too—$125 an hour, up $10 since 2010—all bodes well for expanded revenue.
