Survey of Owners

From 2000-2011, CMAA collaborated with FMI to conduct annual surveys of capital construction project owners. The purpose of these surveys was to measure the issues and trends of greatest concern to owners. After a four-year absebce, CMAA has returned with an all-new Survey of Owners for 2015! Access to the entire CMAA Foundation supported research library can be found below:
