Construction & Manufacturing

Rock solid advice from firm foundations. The construction industry in the UK has always faced significant challenges, long before Covid-19 forced it to down tools and wonder how and when things might get back to normal.

Most of the industry is led by proper trade professionals – people who started on the tools because they wanted to build meaningful things.  Naturally that curiosity for construction progresses from building developments into building businesses.

That is often the point at which the snags turn into big issues for company directors.  After all, you didn’t initially train to know the ins and outs of complex supply chain agreements, employee relations, profit pressures and how to grow the business.

That said, those varying and important demands will have a big impact on success or failure, particularly at a time when you are feeling the squeeze from all sides.

The good news is our gang of financial draughtsmen, team builders and margin engineers have over 20 years experience in getting their hands dirty and helping company directors to successfully scale their business and exit either by succession planning or sale.
