The SOM-designed Shenzhen Rural Commercial Bank Headquarters in China features a tightly-spaced diagrid exostructure that makes a striking architectural statement for the 33-story tower. The structural scheme also creates an entirely column-free floor plan and provides much needed solar shading for the tower, reducing its solar gain by roughly 34%, according to SOM.

Now 46 years running, Building Design+Construction's 2022 Giants 400 Report ranks the largest architecture, engineering, and construction firms in the U.S. This year a record 519 AEC firms participated in BD+C's Giants 400 report. The final report includes more than 130 rankings across 25 building sectors and specialty categories.   

The complete findings for the individual categories are presented below. Note: The building sector categories and specialty rankings will be posted periodically throughout August and September. 

Data for our Giants 400 charts is based on information supplied by the respective firms. Firms are asked to verify the accuracy of their data. The Construction section includes two types of statistics. The Contractors chart reflects revenues for general contracting, design-build, CM at risk, and IPD—projects where all revenues flow through the contractor.

The CM Agent + PM chart lists firms that derive their revenues through fees. In the subsequent market-specific sections (Healthcare, Data Centers, etc.) data labeled “Construction” includes all delivery methods combined (GC, DB, CM at risk, IPD, CM agent, PM).

Lab space scarcity propels construction demand in life sciences sector

In its 2021 Life Sciences Real Estate Outlook, JLL predicted that access to talent would be a primary concern for an industry sector that had been growing by leaps and bounds. A year later, talent still guides real estate decisions. But market conditions of a different sort were cooling the biotech field: namely, investors that have soured on startups which underperformed after going public. What this means for new construction and renovation going forward is unpredictable, as the drivers behind life sciences’ surge are still palpable.
