International Consulting for Contractors

Growing Internationally

Increasingly, general and specialty contractors in the United States are following project owners across international borders. Between unique building codes, labor force issues and a maze of regulations & cultural nuances, expanding internationally can be overwhelming. Too many contractors enter new markets unprepared, resulting in costly mistakes incurred while negotiating and bidding on contracts. Bennett Thrasher’s international accounting consultants have partnered with numerous contractors to ensure they enter the global market well-informed and prepared.

Building A Global Reputation for Excellence

For contractors already performing on a global stage, maintaining the firm’s global reputation requires delivering a consistent, high-quality product in each market. Staying on-time and within budget is no mean feat when you’re managing dozens or even hundreds of projects simultaneously on multiple continents. Our team at BT will help you keep a close eye on construction costs, watching for control flaws and inappropriately billed costs, while simultaneously scanning the horizon for new opportunities to expand your footprint.

Construction M&A

Wherever your construction firm operates, competitive pressures and project owner demands are driving the convergence of design and construction. To deliver more efficient and cost-effective design-build services, architectural, engineering & construction companies are consolidating. This move often represents the most significant financial event for an owner. Careful M&A structuring is necessary to make sure that merger or acquisition maximizes value for both parties.

Bennett Thrasher also offers value acceleration and exit planning for contractors and construction company owners. Whether you want to transfer ownership to a family member or sell, we can help create and preserve the maximum value of your business.
