The Best of the Best

Reaching over 55,000 contractors and construction-related business owners, CE remains the principal source of all-things construction. Since 2003, the magazine has propelled construction professionals towards maximum profit and productivity by providing insight on various industry-related topics. CE developed The Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms™ ranking by asking more than 700 U.S. construction accounting firms to complete a survey. The data collected included: 1) 2021 revenues from the firm’s construction practice; 2) number of CPAs in the firm’s construction practice; 3) percentage of the firm’s total revenues derived from its construction practice; 4) number of states in which the firm is licensed to practice; 5) year in which the construction practice was established; and 6) number of AEC clients served during fiscal year 2021. The ranking was determined by an algorithm that weighted the aforementioned factors in descending order of importance.

“We are honored to be recognized in The Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms™ for the second year in a row by CE for our work in the construction industry,” said Robert Nevill, Audit Partner, and construction practice leader. “We attribute our success to adding value for our construction clients wherever possible by providing a comprehensive view of the surrounding business environment, challenges, and opportunities.”

By securing a spot in CE’s The Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms™, Berman Hopkins distinguishes itself as one of the most capable, robust, and high-quality accounting firms in the nation.
