Construction


Following a detailed set of plans, using the right tools, and laying a solid financial foundation are central to constructing an outstanding business. While owning and operating a construction business in Los Angeles can be rewarding, construction companies face several challenges, including high exposure to risk, increasing pressures on profitability, rising costs, small margins and profitability pressures, workers’ compensation issues, compliance and financial covenant requirements, and an always highly competitive environment.
