We understand contractors need to prioritize both short- and long-term stability, which is why the Whittlesey team focuses on monitoring complicated industry regulations and providing timely advisory services to our clients. Whittlesey’s dedicated construction practice is staffed by accountants, several Construction Industry Technicians (CIT), advisors, and technology experts with specialization in assurance, tax, and financial systems.
