Construction - Contractors & Other

Operators in the construction industry face unique challenges in running consistently profitable businesses. Project/contract management and accounting can provide significant challenges to operators in this space, including quoting projects, managing projects, monitoring project status, assessing project profitability, and other key decision making areas. Our depth of knowledge around the accounting, processes, both operational and financial internal controls, and other required infrastructure to run a successful operation prove vital in our profit improvement, turnaround, and restructuring work in this space. 

Fort Dearborn has worked extensively with contractors, including general contractors, specialty contractors and design/build firms, architectural & engineering firms, building materials manufacturers and distributors, heavy construction equipment manufacturers and dealerships, and more. Our clients have served the residential, commercial and industrial markets, including civil & infrastructure, residential developers/home builders, structural steel fabrication/erection, forestry/lumber mills/flooring manufacturers, and more.
