I have been asked a variant of this question about 5 times in the past 2 weeks - "how many people does arctec group have?"
So in case anyone else out there is wondering...We have been around for 7 years, ranging from 2-3 people. we are like the special forces - get in, get the job done, get out. hence focus on training, architecture, detailed design. Of course, we work on projects that are sometimes very large and if necessary we can help build out larger teams sourced from other places but our focus is excellence in training, architecture, and design not jamming 15 blue suited consultants into your cubes.
Not that there isn't room for larger consulting groups, just not our focus. When we started our company our model was more like a law firm or a real world architecture firm. In most cases, you don't hire a lawyer or architect because they have 30,000 people in their firm, you hire them because they have the expertise in the area you are trying to address. So its not "how many architects in your firm? mroe than a 1,000?" its more "tell me about your other clients/projects. show me some buildings you have helped build."
