Construction

Build Toward a Thriving Future

Certain challenges consistently burden construction companies—the razor thin margins, the seasonality, the need to aggressively manage cash flow—but staying competitive in a transforming industry requires proactive solutions that address more than just simple tax and accounting needs.

Explore how our industry-focused services can help you stay ahead of change and focus on what matters most: building amazing projects.

Rise Above Industry Challenges

Learn how our services can help build a solid foundation to pursue your business goals.

Protect Valuable Assets and Data

Cybercriminals infiltrate businesses at alarming rates, causing damaging breaches with major financial implications—potentially upward of hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars—for both your businesses and clients.

With communications among multiple job sites common for construction businesses—and the need to track costs and individual site subcontractors, site plans, and more—invasive ransomware could impact more than just your headquarters.

It’s crucial to stop cyberthreats before they happen, or at the least, mitigate the turmoil they can unleash. Testing your current systems, or implementing new ones, can help evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Protect your business and assets with our Cybersecurity Services.

Strengthen Your Workforce

Attracting, evolving, and retaining talent is crucial to keep your business growing, taking on jobs, and not missing opportunities due to a lack of labor—a major challenge as more professionals near retirement and workforce pipelines dry up.

Invest in your employees by conducting structured compensation plan studies—by region and level—and assessing your benefits based on industry benchmark studies. Support your workforce through employee stock ownership plans or develop their talents by creating strategic plans that emphasize safety and their value to the company.

Keep your professionals engaged and committed with our Employee Benefit Plans, Organizational Planning Consulting Services, and more.

Drive Transition Planning

As business owners look toward retirement, transferring the business to the next generation of family or leadership can be a complex process—one that should start years before a target retirement date.

Business owners should incorporate both the business’ needs and personal financial goals into plans for future management, successor selection, and shaping their legacy.

Start preparing for your next chapter with our Individual Financial Planning, Organizational Planning, Succession Planning Consulting Services, and more.

Pursue Innovation

Enhancing job sites, streamlining processes, and implementing new technologies can come with considerable price tags. Fortunately, tax credits that reward research and development and hiring workers from certain demographics and backgrounds can help mitigate costs.

Construction companies are often eligible to pursue R&D credits related to:

  • Designing or developing innovative methods to construct wastewater treatment technologies or bridge or roadway structures
  • Designing renewable energy infrastructure
  • Developing new or improved construction techniques

Boost your cash flow by navigating the complex tax credit claims process with our R&D Tax Credits, Federal and State Hiring Credit Services, and more.

Stay on Budget with Data-Driven Decisions

Implement systems that provide comprehensive, real-time views of your business to help illuminate data so you can make decisions informed by actual data over instinct or opinion.

Setting rates or establishing caps for equipment inventory can help monitor cost accumulation and keep projects on budget. Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your equipment program can also help boost profits and your bottom line.    

Tapping into your business’ data can help improve safety measures and lead to refined operations, better project delivery, a stronger competitive advantage, and ultimately more project wins.
