12 pagesDate: May 7, 2024


Architectural design offices (ADOs), which are the producers of increasingly complex design projects in the rapidly developing construction industry, need not only to work hard, but also to work productively in order to survive in today's competitive market. The ability to complete a task, generate a product, or accomplish an objective while making the best use of available resources is referred to as productivity. It is a measure of how effectively input resources are used to produce the desired output. Workloads in ADOs are frequently heavy, challenging and need to be completed in a short period of time. Furthermore, this industry's projects frequently call for swift adaptation to constantly shifting circumstances and client expectations. In order to maintain success and keep up with the industry's rapid pace, it is vital that ADOs ensure productive work. Thus, this study aims to identify the factors affecting productivity of ADOs. As a result of the research, it was concluded that there is a gap in the literature on the subject. To identify the factors and prioritize them, interviews were held with the experts who are owners of ADOs with at least 10 years of experience. Following expert interviews, the study sheds light on key areas of concern about ensuring productive work in ADOs for future studies.
