Why Call Us for an Operational Assessment?

Our expert construction consultants and construction business consultants have helped dozens of construction companies to improve performance and profits. We’ve developed a proprietary Comprehensive Operational Assessment based on our first-hand experience working with growing Construction Companies.

In the Operational Assessment, we’ll work through a structured discovery project where, together, we’ll uncover what’s working well, what your organization struggles with, and what may be needed to grow, improve and scale in the future. After the discovery process, we’ll author a detailed report with our operations gap analysis and solutions roadmap, including projections for Return On Investment (ROI) and ease of execution.

Our clients tell us they’ve found the Assessment to be extremely valuable because it details what’s needed to upgrade, improve, implement, and install to ensure that your operations infrastructure can support your goals. The entire project is designed to provide a clear and actionable plan to ensure that your operations infrastructure is able to SCALE ahead of and support the growth of your business.

Our Comprehensive Operational Assessment will provide real insight into the inner workings of your company from a Business Construction Expert’s perspective.

We charge a fixed fee for this service, based on the size of your company.

Starting at $30,000

We will apply 20% of this fee as a credit towards the execution of future resulting projects (within 3 months).
