Helping you navigate the complexities and challenges of the construction industry
CopperFox - Your trusted partner for business growth and transformation.
What We Do
At CopperFox, we are committed to helping our clients Build Better Construction Sector Companies.
Our services are specifically tailored to meet the unique needs and challenges of businesses in the construction and infrastructure industry. We understand the pressures that businesses in this industry face, from managing your supply chain to resourcing skilled talent, managing complex projects and navigating cash flow challenges.
We’ve worked with large Electrical Services companies, Building Maintenance companies, Civil Engineering and Land Development firms and Builders, helping them firstly secure a foundation for ongoing growth (business & operating structures), but also implementing important processes and procedures that makes managing their business more effective and efficient.
We embed ourselves within your management team to provide useful insight, analysis and advice around trends, performance, risk management and the most effective way to manage and grow the business, analysing the feasibility of options and opportunities along the way. In some cases we have also been involved in preparing the business for sale, not the sale itself as that’s not our area of expertise, but input into how to maximise the value of the business at the point of sale.
In our experience, critical areas of exposure for Construction sector businesses include the pricing of contracts, managing variations to those contracts; cashflow management, having sufficiently accurate transparency on project financial performance especially large projects, and of course resource management. Often owners are so embedded in the hectic day to day operational activities of the business, they are prevented from working on the business as opposed to in it.
By utilising our industry knowledge and experience, our team of dedicated business consultants can help shift your focus, dealing with current issues and creating a platform that makes future growth and management of the business easier, including adding innovative, customised solutions to deliver outcomes that improve your bottom line.

Inflation continues to be a significant issue that impacts a company's ability to control expenses. Supply chain management can also be a challenge, especially when sourcing materials from overseas. Finding skilled talent has been a struggle due to low unemployment rates and bureaucratic delays making recruiting overseas talent difficult. Delays in resourcing can hinder project timelines, add unnecessary costs and cause invoicing issues, all directly impacting cash flow.
If operating as a sub-contractor, businesses are reliant on the effectiveness of the lead contractor to keep things on track, and delays can have a cascading effect on costs, invoicing and payment. Passing on cost increases can be difficult, particularly when purchasing materials in advance from overseas, as costs may increase significantly before they are needed.
Our experienced consultants provide tailored solutions and support to help businesses address these challenges and optimise their cost management strategies. From helping with supply chain negotiations, to cash management, and putting together contracts - we can help your business prosper and grow!
