Experience our client-focused approach

Since we’ve worked with civil contractors for more than 60 years, we understand the complicated challenges facing civil contractors — which means we can help you overcome common challenges, especially related to construction financial management.

For instance, our relationships in the surety industry help our clients with bonding capacity and liquidity issues, while our experience with lease or buy decisions on heavy equipment can provide you with thoughtful financing alternatives. In addition, we know how to productively negotiate joint ventures and subcontract work, which can help you position your company for growth or downsizing depending on the market conditions.

We provide professional services to more than 350 civil contractors nationwide. Our clients include contractors and suppliers who work on highway and street projects, bridges, oil and gas pipelines, railroads, underground utilities, tunnels, and water resources. And our clients’ work includes public sector and private sector projects, as well as public-private partnerships. Ultimately, our team’s goal, as your construction accountant, is to provide a comprehensive strategy that positions you for immediate and long-term success.
