2013 Top 100 Giants: Focus on Healthcare
A total of 57 firms out of Interior Design‘s 2013 Top 100 Giants design health-care projects. At $378.35 million, fees generated from health-care projects represented 14 percent of all design fees earned in 2012 (that percentage was identical in 2011). That puts health care as number three in terms of market segments bringing in the most dollars overall—office brought in $924 million and hospitality brought in $474 million (more on that here). Also of note, 46 percent of all government projects were health-care projects.

Data in this section derives from the first installment of the two-part annual business survey of Interior Design Giants, comprising the 100 largest firms
ranked by interior-design fees for the 12-month period ending December 31, 2012. Interior-design fees include those attributed to:
1. All types of interiors work, including commercial and residential.
2. All aspects of a firm’s interior-design practice, from strategic planning and programming to design and
3. Fees paid to a firm for work performed by employees and independent contractors who are full-time staff
Interior-design fees do not include revenues paid to a firm and remitted to subcontractors who 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. Ties are broken by the dollar value of products installed. The data was compiled and analyzed by the Interior Design market research staff in New York, led by Wing Leung, research director.
