The Fees Bureau was established to provide construction professionals and procurers with thoroughly researched, timely and relevant business operating data. The range of guides for professionals have become industry standard references for professionals and clients alike.
The Fees Bureau is a division of Mirza & Nacey Research Ltd.
Vince Nacey and Aziz Mirza met while working for the RIBA’s Market Research Unit in the 1980s. They recognised both the importance of, and the shortage of, really good data and market research for professionals in the building industry. In 1989 they established Mirza & Nacey Research, which has been providing research and information for professionals in commercial firms, private practice, institutes and public bodies for more than 25 years.
Over the last 30+ years it has built up a unique research association with architects, quantity surveyors and engineers and their institutes and trade bodies. The Fees Bureau has strong links with the Royal Institute of British Architects, for whom it conducts several surveys each year including the annual RIBA Chartered Practices' Business Benchmarking Survey. More recently the team has been working in Europe, first with the Architects’ Council of Europe, for whom it has pioneered the landmark research 'The Architectural Profession in Europe', and in 2015 with the Federation of Veterinarians in Europe, who also commissioned a pan-European survey of their profession.
