Soon You Too Will KNOW

All architects I spoke to said business was terrible and some in coma mode.

My wife, an architect, has almost no business.

Leads typically fade off when the bids come in and inquiries stop or get outright canceled.

Construction sites around Berkeley post signs on the mobile offices saying "NO-WE ARE NOT HIRING!"

Survey and discussion among architects and contractors revolve around how many carpentry shops have laid everyone off or shut down.

It hasn't been this bad since the 70's. Moreover, in the 70's and 80's there were some lucky firms would make a name for themselves with big government projects such as museums, embassies, government offices and such. We just don't see that work anymore.


As some of you know, I have a lot of friends and acquaintences that are architects....and the story is the same for all....simply little to no business and nothing in the pipeline.....which bodes very negatively for construction going forward.

I "rec" -- I "rec" -- AND -- I "rec" again, but still no love or reply?

As Morrisey once said, "How soon is now?" Anyway . . .

Iran is blowing smoke up y'all's arse. The worst they can do is demand non-U.$. Dollar currency to pay for their oil.

And as far as yer "new" ridgit-digits are concerned, Fred Flintstone had more with Wilma after hours and than Charlie Chaplin, er um, President Ahmadinejad has to disrupt our way of life.

Just a thought for you to disregard . . . again :^D
