SR Dixon & Associates, LLC was organized for the purpose of providing construction project auditing and consulting services for construction project owners. Project owners may not have the extensive experience, time or resources needed to identify risks, design, implement and monitor controls.
Owners need a business partner that can identify and assess risk, participate in control development, and implement and monitor controls at various project stages. They also need a partner that can work with their legal advisors, providing assistance with contracting or delivery method strategy.
Our goal during each engagement is to provide quality services that reduce construction costs and is responsive to our client’s needs. Our sole objective is to add value to each project that we are involved with.
We offer several distinct advantages in expertise and service. The Principals of SR Dixon & Associates, LLC have been employed by contractors and commercial developers and have extensive knowledge of the construction industry. This working knowledge and hands-on experience allows us to provide professional and cost efficient services.
During our engagements, we make every effort to preserve our client’s relationship with the contractor. We conduct an open discussion with the contractor at the completion of our fieldwork, which encourages quick resolution of audit issues and maintains good relations with the contractor.
