Architecture & 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 annual Architectural and Engineering Studies. DGC held a webinar series in lieu of the 2020 A&E Summit. Topics included succession planning, navigating A&E firm financials and analyzing KPIs, and running your operations remotely. To watch the recordings of the presentations and download the slide decks, click here.

We hope you enjoyed our virtual 2021 A&E Summit on June 22. Economist Anirban Basu returned as our Keynote speaker. You can see a recap of our 2021 Virtual Summit on our A&E Summit page. Save the date for our next Summit on June 24, 2022 at the Langham in Boston.
