Architecture & Design extends Top Trusted Brands industry survey by 72 hours


Due to unprecedented demand, Architecture & Design has announced it is extending its fifth Top Trusted Brands industry survey nominations period by a further 72 hours.


The second phase of nominations will now close at midnight, 23 September 2018.


If you have not yet nominated your brand for 2018, this is your chance to ensure your entry is included in the 2018 survey.


The survey has been highly beneficial to the Australian built industry since its inception in 2012, consistently ranking the nation’s Top Trusted Brands in the architecture, building, construction and design industries.


The survey has set an industry benchmark for brands to consult, while at the same time, offering an insight into which brands Australians perceive as trustworthy.


Having seen a significant number of entries come through during the initial phase of nominations, Architecture & Design has extended this phase to allow for any last-minute changes and/or additions.


In terms of ensuring entire industry coverage, Architecture & Design recently added four new categories to the survey, taking the list of categories up to 29:

·       Associations & Information

·       Furniture

·       Lifts & Elevators

·       Office Equipment


If you have not yet submitted an entry for your brand, you may consider nominating in one of the four new categories.


If you have already nominated your brand, you still have the opportunity to submit an additional entry, particularly if you feel your brand should be nominated in one of the recently-added categories.


“Brand differentiation is most effectively achieved by creating trust of your brand in a crowded marketplace, and one of the fastest ways to garner more market trust is to be listed in the Top Trusted Brands survey”, said editor of Architecture & Design, Branko Miletic.


Previous surveys have revealed a number of interesting trends in Trusted Brands rankings over the years.


The Laminex Group, CSR Gyprock, Caroma and Dulux Australia all maintained a Top 10 ranking in previous editions of the survey. Blum placed in the Top 3 for three consecutive years before dropping down to number 14 in the most recent survey in 2016.


Alucobond Architectural was initially ranked number 46 in the first survey in 2012, but since then has continued to climb the ranks. The company sat at number 23 in 2014, before appearing in the Top 10 in 2015 and most recently ranked 5th in 2016. Where will they end up in 2018?


Austral Bricks (Brickworks) saw impressive progression, going from a rank of 95 in 2012, to number 16 in 2015. Austral Bricks continued to rise, placing in the Top 10 of the 2016 survey.
