You make critical decisions every day in managing your projects and your people, but do you have the time to control the bigger financial management issues facing your business? Many construction business owners spend their valuable time working in the business, but few are able to devote significant time and resources to work on the business. At Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith, we help our clients change their focus and improve their overall business management capabilities. Our goal is to provide sound advice to the general contractors, subcontractors and home builders we serve by developing solutions for the more complex business management needs of the construction industry.

As active members of the Alabama Surety Association, Associated Builders and Contractors, Subcontractors Association of Alabama and the Alabama Utility Contractor’s Association, our professionals have a vast array of experience dealing with the issues you face every day: bidding, estimating, project financing, bonding, cash flow and cost recovery, to name a few. Our engagement team will quickly become your go-to resource for financial guidance and planning. We are available when you engage us to help you minimize tax liability, maximize banking and bonding capacity, and plan for future growth.
