There is good news for aspiring architects, as the American Institute of Architects is reporting a significant increase in the amount of contracted work for the month of October - a sign that not only is the economy slowly improving, but that developers are preparing to get back to work.

The survey, taken from an monthly polling of AIA workers, is used to gauge the amount of construction activity that can be expected over the next year, as a building''s trip from blueprint to grand opening can take anywhere between nine months and a year to construct, according to the LA Times.

The news breaks the cycle of disappointing returns that has plagued the industry over the past several months.

"This news could prove to be an early signal toward a recovery for the design and construction industry," AIA''s chief economist, Kermit Baker tells the Times. "We are months away from a substantial upturn in construction activity, but this is the first sign in place for that to turn around."

The majority of these new buildings are reported to be institutional developments including schools, government buildings and healthcare facilities.
