Architectural & Engineering Firms

At DGC, we understand that architectural and engineering (A&E) firms have unique audit, tax and financial advisory needs. Our team of dedicated professionals has the specialized expertise to help you to monitor your performance, control costs, improve profitability, and manage cash flow. 

Our accurate and timely reports and industry-honed perspective can help you evaluate your firm’s performance, identify areas for improvement, and better manage your business from a financial perspective.  

And as industry leaders, we have hosted annual A&E Summits and also produce an annual Architectural Study and Engineering Report. Our webinar series begins on September 17th with Navigating A&E Firm Financials and Analyzing KPIs. Additional webinars will include DGC’s Architectural Study and Engineering Report Review and Analysis, Succession Planning - Transition Plans in a COVID-19 Environment, The Impact of CMMC on A&E Firms, and other webinars (see complete schedule).

We hope you can join us for our 2021 A&E Summit on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel! Economist Anirban Basu will be returning as our Keynote speaker.
