Our Story, Purpose & Values
Ascent was founded by Adam Cooper in 2014 with the idea of helping local electrical contractors be more successful. Based in Atlanta, Adam had been working for over 20 years in the commercial and industrial construction world and saw a gap in the marketplace. While there are plenty of general business consultants, most do not have direct knowledge or experience in the Construction industry and therefore don’t understand or know how to solve the challenges many of these businesses face every day. As an experienced business owner and successful contractor, he believed he could provide the answers they were looking for by starting a construction consulting firm. Ascent Consulting was born.
After just a few short months, his client list came to include plumbing, fire alarm and general contractors who were also seeking help with their business. Ascent Consulting was on its way and Adam began hiring people to assist him with his clients.
In 2016, Ascent was awarded our first project outside of Georgia and began working with clients in multiple states. We were also awarded our first marketing projects, helping local contractors grow their business revenue through strategic marketing campaigns. By 2017 we had worked with clients in seven states and reached the West Coast with our first client in California.
By 2019, the majority of our clients were located outside of Georgia and Ascent became one of the top construction management consulting firms in the US. Currently, no other firm offers the expertise, depth and variety of consulting services specifically for small to mid-size construction companies.
Ascent Consulting’s purpose is to improve the performance and profitability of every client’s business. By utilizing our comprehensive industry knowledge, real-world experience and team of dedicated professionals, we create innovative, customized solutions to help our clients get to the next level of success.
