QuickBooks® for Contractors Bookkeeping Tips & Training

Making the Move to Public Works Construction

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The current economic situation has dealt a serious blow to both homebuilders and commercial contractors.  Like all downturns to the economy, this too shall pass; but, experts predict that it will take quite awhile for everything to stabilize.

However, all is not lost…..

Public Works construction could thrive.  If you listen to the news and read construction trade newsletters you hear that part of President-Elect Obama’s economic stimulus plan includes investing in our country’s infrastructure; which means public works construction projects.

Making the move to public works construction will require planning and quite possibly a lot of changes in the way you currently run your existing construction business.

This article will provide you with some tips to help you get started; but, be aware that we cannot possibly provide you with an entire, detailed roadmap to follow.
