Business coaching for contractors & construction business owners
Afraid of going back to the drawing board? In many cases a construction industry business can improve dramatically with the right adjustments.
Construction business consulting from the Giersch Group provides cost-effective strategies for business owners, contractors and subcontractors who are wearing too many hats, struggling to stay afloat or seemingly unable to grow their business.

During your free consultation we’ll get to know you and your construction-related business and design a time and cost-effective approach to achieve the goals you value most.
Whether you need to improve cash flow, resolve employee problems or need help defining your optimal business structure and systems, our services can help. We work with small business owners all the time. They can afford our services and so you can you.
How our contractor coaching works
“The Giersch Group helped me turn my business around at a crucial time and even stepped in to do our accounting when my bookkeeper resigned suddenly. Ultimately, Peter helped me sell the business. He was very helpful.”
--Jim Wirtz, Jim Wirtz's Woodworks, Milwaukee
Effective planning starts with knowing the numbers and making decisions based on accurate financial data.
Our specialized bookkeeping services for construction companies will get your books cleaned up and, if necessary, set up with online accounting software to give your business a strong foundation for growth.
With clear and timely financial reporting in place, our consulting services are based on your needs and budget. Let us know where you want to focus or start with a business analysis to identify areas of inefficiency or risk.

“We have worked with Peter Giersch for more than two years. Our business, Story Hill Renovations, has become more focused, profitable, and organized as a result of Peter's consulting work. Peter and his group do an outstanding job of providing intuitive financial insight. It is also beneficial to have someone from outside our firm provide feedback on new company initiatives. The Giersch Group provides us with a diverse business consulting skill set. We have recently grown our relationship with his firm to include our bookkeeping. Keep up the great work!”
