Owning and managing a profitable construction company starts with knowing your numbers, managing your money and having a clear understanding of what it costs to run your business. Reach your financial goals by learning how much profit you should make, return on equity, the right overhead, margin, markup, crew rates, equipment rates, labor burden rate and job costs, accounts receivables, assets and liabilities, cash management, realistic profit goals and achievable sales targets. Knowing and tracking your exact sales volume, material costs, equipment costs, field labor costs, subcontractor costs, overhead expenses, working capital and profit goals are key to making more money.
