Construction

Results Through Strength

If you run a construction company, increased competition, labor shortages and financing challenges are all in a day’s work. At Clark Schaefer Hackett we understand, because we help construction companies overcome these challenges every day.

We offer all the sophisticated services you expect from a top CPA and advisory firm — but it’s our service style that sets us apart. We believe better relationships produce better results, so we teach our professionals to deliver highly-valued client experiences. And it shows. Our client satisfaction ratings are 45% higher than the industry average.*

We can help you get that next project off the ground, manage risk and make smart decisions. But we also respond promptly, deliver quality and truly care about your success. You see, we’re builders too. But our specialty is building strong working relationships. Together we’ll create results through remarkable relationships.
