We enjoy working with construction companies. The construction industry is made up of hardworking people, and we respect the work you do. We appreciate seeing projects that our clients build, and helping contribute to their success. After all, the roads, bridges, and buildings are the infrastructure that makes the communities we love function.

The construction team at Kernutt Stokes has served the construction industry for decades and understands the unique needs of construction companies. This includes financial reporting such as compilations, reviews and audits, overhead audits, R&D tax credits, navigating bond requirements, GAAP accounting, and more. 

And while industry-specific expertise is important, we take a holistic approach to our clients’ business, starting with a clear understanding of the business itself and the goals of the owners. This includes providing tax consulting and compliance, retirement plan administration, succession planning, estate planning, and other considerations unique to each company.  

Kernutt Stokes is a member of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), a member of the Association of General Contractors (AGC), a sponsor of the AGC Golf Tournament, and a member of The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).  

If you’re looking for a partner that will help build your business while you are building for others, we would welcome a phone call or email.
