The business is one a just a few trying to meet demand in this space. It would benefit from updating office technology for project management i.e. estimating, project flow and billing. Substantial economies of scale could be achieved from an acquisition by an existing engineering firm. Currently the required engineering reviews are referred outside the company. Completing the loop in house could significantly improve profitability.
Superior company reputation in the area. Continuous demand for services is driven by weather, materials depletion, project upgrades, homeowner turnover and new construction. There are other companies active in the space but there is more than enough work to sustain all. Consistent full pipeline of projects year after year.
Will train for 8 weeks @ $0 cost. Owner will remain available to transition the business and share his knowledge as necessary. A longer term consulting arrangement is possible.

Two field crew chiefs and ten skilled workers are currently in place. The office maintains a library of former projects with details of permits, soil conditions, materials used and special conditions. This fosters return contracts.
