CONTACT US FOR A CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION
We want to learn about your business and goals. After our initial conversation, we will send you an information request regarding what is needed for us to conduct a “market-informed” valuation analysis. This analysis is unique as we carefully assess your business through the eyes of a buyer by pairing construction industry transaction data with our own proprietary transaction data to produce a custom report indicating the valuation range that we believe will be reflected by the market. We will also discuss how to position your business to achieve a premium valuation.
Along with the valuation analysis, we will provide a custom confidential marketing plan detailing exactly the steps that we will take to find buyers and maximize competition. If you decide to move forward with a sale, we will design a confidential information memorandum (CIM) to outline the advantages of your construction company. We will never provide your company’s identity or any confidential information to any buyer unless they have signed a strict confidentiality agreement, answered qualifying interview questions, undergone a background check, and been approved by our team (and/or our client).
Calder will design a sophisticated and comprehensive marketing campaign that confidentially introduces your business to a pool of 1,000s of buyers. Using sophisticated and proprietary communication campaigns, we will narrow the pool of buyers down to the most serious ones, have one-to-one discussions with them, solicit offers, and then sit down with you to review the best offers and advise you on the advantages of each one. When you have chosen the best offer for you, we will suggest ways to negotiate and improve each offer and then roll up our sleeves to make the final offer as perfect as possible. We'll answer questions during due diligence and keep things on track with the attorneys.
At Calder Capital, we offer unparalleled industry and buy-sell expertise that sets us apart from the competition. Whether you're looking to expand your construction portfolio or sell your construction business, our team of seasoned professionals will guide you every step of the way. We have a comprehensive understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities within the construction sector, enabling us to provide strategic advice and tailored solutions to meet your specific goals.

CONSTRUCTION CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
“Working with Scott was an exceptional experience, where he not only met but exceeded my expectations. He always made himself available and handled everything with utmost professionalism and care. It was as if he was treating the deal as his own, leaving me feeling secure and in trusted hands. Overall, the transaction was a smooth and stress-free experience, and I highly recommend Scott and Calder Capital to anyone looking to buy or sell a business.”
– Dane Englert, Owner, The Ferraro Group, Phoenix, AZ (Buyer)
“I began searching for my next opportunity on my own and I did not realize how arduous it was going to be. It was a very difficult process that created moments of doubt and second-guessing. Once Shane and the Calder team began working with me, I felt true progress in my search. They helped lay out a strategic search plan with many different factors being weighted. From there, we were able to navigate several different opportunities and achieve the ultimate goal of acquiring a business that checked a majority of my boxes. Shane was always one phone call away, and every step of the way he made me feel supported. I would highly recommend the Calder team to anybody that needs the extra assistance in finding their own opportunity.”
– Trip Biesanz, Owner, G & C Glass & Mirror, Chicago, IL (Buyer)
“Calder treated me like a billion-dollar client. They were very insightful, thorough, and responsive. Scott was extremely helpful, especially with all the little details not only with the sale but the transition period as well.”
– Mike Ferraro, Former Owner, The Ferraro Group, Traverse City, MI (Seller)
"Max, I just wanted to take a minute and personally thank you and Garrett for getting this deal over the finish line! Your company has been a pleasure to work with, and Garrett has been a major player in getting this deal done on time and before the new year; you should be very proud of his professionalism and can-do attitude! I first remember meeting [Max] for lunch and the conversation we had. From then on, I knew Calder Capital would be the firm to help us reach our goals of getting our company into the hands of a new owner that would continue the legacy that we have built up over the years. With Garrett’s non-stop pushing on all fronts, we were able to get it done on time! We will have no problem recommending Calder Capital to anyone looking to sell their business! Thanks again for everyone’s help at Calder Capital!"
— Todd & Debbie Strain, Former Owners, Strain Electric Co., Wyoming, MI (Sellers)
"Sandi and I would have never been able to do on our own what we did working with the Calder team. We would have never been able to access the caliber of the many potential buyers that Calder was able to provide for us. While the number is always important in the sale of a business, we wanted to make sure that the new owners would be proper stewards for our business and our team. Scott and the rest of the Calder team knew how important that was for us and showed the heart of servants in finding the right fit. We are proud to have been able to experience the fastest closing in Calder’s history–although I must admit that it didn’t feel that fast as we were going through the process. The expertise and experience of the entire Calder team helped us work through this process better than we could have ever imagined. If you are considering selling your business, I would highly recommend the Calder team."
— Rog Bronsink, Former Owner, Starlite Kitchens & Baths, Inc., Byron Center, MI (Seller)
“Scott was very helpful throughout the whole process and Calder was able to provide a number of qualified buyers to choose from. The new owner has previous experience within the field and is committed to keeping the business family owned and operated, which is what I was looking for."
— Steve Dalga, Former Owner, Control Electric, Grand Rapids , MI (Seller)
