Schneider Downs Ranked 27th in Construction Executive’s 2021 Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms

Pittsburgh, PA — Schneider Downs was ranked 27th in Construction Executive’s Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms rankings of the top accounting firms within the construction industry.

For the 2021 Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms, Construction Executive reached out to U.S. accounting firms with formal construction practices to learn how they are advising their clients throughout the uncertain economic times with a focus on supply chain stability, labor shortages and cash flow management.

“Schneider Downs has a long and storied history working with construction companies from throughout our region, and that work has been a tremendous part of our success for more than 65 years,” said Ted M. Pettko, audit shareholder and leader of the firm’s construction practice. “The construction sector is quite unique and has many different needs and requirements. The diversity of our specialists allows us to meet all of those needs, and I think that helps explain how our practice has continued to grow and thrive.”

To qualify for the list and rankings, firms were asked to complete a survey with data including:

  • 2020 revenues from construction practice
  • Number of CPA’s in construction practice
  • Number of construction clients in 2020
  • Number of office locations with a construction accounting practice
