Benchmarking.com.au is a business benchmarking solution which allows practices to compare their financial and operational performance with the standard of the profession. This service is now included as a benefit for A+ practices.

The 2017 Benchmarking Questionnaire is opening soon.


All practices will be requested annually to complete the questionnaire online. The data from the questionnaire will form the basis of a confidential report which will then be distributed to each respondent, providing them with a comparison of their practice to the industry standard. Your input will help to maintain an ongoing statistical database for the architecture profession. All data collected remains your property and the Institute has at no stage access to the individual results.

Institute Members receive a 50% discount to take part in the project; A+ Members can participate at no extra cost. Please contact membership@architecture.com.au to have your discount applied prior to registering or logging in online.

What you will need to complete the questionnaire

  • Your profit and loss statement for year ending June 2016

  • Your balance sheet for year ending June 2016

  • Personnel information, for example

    • how many registered architects/graduates of architecture you have working for you

    • the hours that they are employed

  • Business details, for example

    • services that you offer

    • client base; whether it be public, residential, commercial etc.
