The RIBA Future Trends Workload Index fell back a little this month, down to +35 in March 2014 from its all-time high of +41 in February 2014, but confidence levels about an improvement in future workloads for architects remain very solid and the overall trajectory of the index remains very positive.
In terms of geographical analysis, all of the UK nations and regions returned very positive balance figures for future workload forecasts, with the strongest figures coming from Scotland and the North of England, indicating that the recovery in confidence levels is now widespread across the UK.
Similarly, in terms of practice size, small (1 – 10 staff), medium (10 – 50 staff) and large-sized practices (51+ staff) are all reporting positive balance figures.
