Architecture suffers before building does.
A survey of more than 450 architecture practices conducted by the Association of Consulting Architects finds that two thirds have lost more than 30% of their revenue, and eight in ten have had projects cancelled or put on hold.
Six in ten are relying on JobKeeper. Half have cut pay or working hours. Three in ten have stood down or sacked staff. Only 15% believe they have enough work to see out the year.
In total, the survey finds more than A$10 billion of projects have either been cancelled or put on hold, just among those responding to the survey.
