Report 2015 on the Italian Architecture

and Engineering Industry, Milan,

(november 2015)

edited by Aldo Norsa

The new edition of the Report 2015 on the Italian Architecture and Engineering Industry studies a sector that is increasingly characterized by a growing projection toward promising international markets. While the domestic market is largely insufficient and of scarce qualitative appeal for design firms and the European market remains fragmented Italian firms are obliged to cope with world competitors of much bigger size. According to economists and to leading institutions (such as the European Central Bank or the World Bank) the main reason why countries like the Peninsula have not yet achieved full recovery from a crisis which started in 2008, is the shrinkage of fixed capital investments, particularly in construction and infrastructure. Many years of an insufficient domestic demand have weakend the Italian industry obliging it to more efforts (and more ingenuity) in order to survive – and possibly strive.

Report 2014 on the Italian Architecture

and Engineering Industry, Milan, (november 2014)

edited by Aldo Norsa

This 2014 Report on the Italian architecture and engineering industry traces the picture of a difficult domestic market which urges a new surge in internationalization. This approach which until a couple of years ago was simply important is now vital.
In line with this scenario the Report – besides presenting updated data on both demand and supply – is apt, first, to provide the readers empirical evidences of the strategic importance that the design activity has for the economy as a whole and for the construction industry in particular. As engineering and architectural services occupy a position upstream of construction processes the dynamic of the demand for these services can be applied as a reliable indicator of the future trend of the demand for construction. The acknowledgement of the strategic role that design services hold calls for an integrated strategic program at the country and at the cross country level to encourage a fast recovery of the design industry and of all the other industries at the downstream of the supply chain.

2013 Report on project entrepreneurship, Milan, (November 2013)

by Aldo Norsa

Presentation: 

Project entrepreneurship is, first of all, a technical-economic activity that pertains to the permanent transformation of the territory, in all its forms. So both in residential settlements and in productive ones, as well as in services in all their meanings. Private and public. And, in addition to the structures, "punctual", to the "linear" infrastructures that innervate the territory and make the organisms built function in every aspect. It deals with the building, construction and plant engineering (both industrial and process): the former of predominant competence of architects (and designers with regard to the design, industrial and environmental, of the vast range of objects that makes it the 'habitable and functional building', the second and third prerogative of the engineers, including the new profession of ‘management engineers' that intervene in the increasingly crucial questions of management and life cycle. [...]

[...] The 2013 Project Report on Project Entrepreneurship analyzes the cyclical situation of the demand to which the offer must find a satisfactory answer, but devotes more attention to the latter and to its capacity (also inventive) to promote new market opportunities , both quantitatively and above all qualitatively.

2012 Report on Project Entrepreneurship, Milan, (October 2012)

by Aldo Norsa

Presentation: 
Project entrepreneurship is nothing but the organization in a corporate form of highly intellectual activities traditionally carried out by (freelance) professionals. With regard to the specifics of construction (and in a broad sense all the productive and / or process investments that insist on the territory), the increasingly numerous professionals that resort to the organization of their business in corporate form are architects and engineers. They thus choose to align themselves with the recent European (and Italian) legislation on contracts that distinguishes between works, supplies and services (obviously operating in this third area) adapting to basic economic and competitive principles such as what effect the competitive comparison has on the price (as well as on time and quality) or, equally crucial, that the contractor has an "obligation of result" with the client and not only "of means". This implies, on the part of those contributing to service contracts, the commitment to respond to any deficiencies in the result with the typical guarantees of the capital companies. The vast casuistry of project entrepreneurship (articulated according to the contents of the project itself, of a construction, civil, plant nature) is articulated - in the layout of this Report - in four very distinct types of "engineering" in a broad sense - two of which relate to the supply, one to the demand and another to the meeting between the two. On the supply side where design predominates ...

2011 Report on Project Entrepreneurship, Milan, (October 2011)

edited by Aldo Norsa

Presentation: Engineering, architecture and technical-economic consulting are advanced tertiary activities that concern the "permanent transformations of the territory"; they represent a turnover of not less than 26 billion per year (16 of which in construction) and are based on the "project" from which the title of this publication: "2011 Report on project entrepreneurship". 

The report examines the most qualified, driving and "transparent" part of the sector that is expressed in those actors who choose to operate in a corporate rather than a professional form: those, in other words, that offer "organized" engineering (and architecture). The representation of which is unsatisfactory: as part of the Confindustria crisis, the weakening of the OICE (Association of engineering, architectural and technical-economic consultancy organizations) is caused by the exit of the large engineering & contracting companies (now represented from the Animp - National Association of Industrial Plant Engineering headed by Federprogetti). To complete the annual rankings of the weekly Construction and Territory ...
