Advisory services for architects

Accelerate growth and boost your bottom line

Running a successful architectural firm takes vision, creativity, passion and hard work.

The demand of the modern marketplace continues to increase pressure on architects to deliver bigger, better — and more affordable — results.

From building information modeling and green building incentives to the latest technology, our team can help level the playing field so you can be stronger to compete. By helping architectural firms of all sizes move fast today and prepare for tomorrow, Wipfli makes it easier for you to focus on what matters so that you can secure the next round of funding, build your team and grow. 

Why Wipfli?

We don’t just pop in, drop a solution and then disappear. We move quickly to get you the results you need today, but we also take the time to build a long-term relationship with you to continually fuel your growth and value.

Our deep knowledge of the architecture industry — and the engineering and construction industries — means we can anticipate your needs to help you get to, and guide you through, your next inflection point.

Tap into our knowledge and experience in:

Digital services

We help lean architectural firms build strong data foundations so that they can make decisions, better serve clients and cross-collaborate in a virtual world. Where’s your roadblock? See how we can provide a solution to fill your talent gap, deepen client engagement or handle building information modeling.

Organizational performance

Build the team you need and the culture you want. We help architectural firms recruit, train and keep strong leaders and teams. We can also help you decide what, when and how to outsource so your architects can stay focused on your clients. Our associates use data-backed tools such as the Predictive Index to help ensure the right people are in the right roles, both now and as you grow. And we build lean processes to maximize your human resources.

Compliance and Risk

Scaling and delivering speed brings risk. Wipfli can conduct federal acquisition regulation audits or set up internal controls and cybersecurity assessments to help lower your chances of assessment findings or fraud. We stay on top of complex regulations, wherever you operate.


Are you confident in your cash flow cycle? How close are you to turning a profit? Are you ready for the rising wage trends? Wipfli associates can evaluate the financial position of your firm — and optimize it for growth. We help you tighten financial controls today, anticipate future financial needs, design and maintain stock-based compensation plans and prepare you for the next phase.


It’s time to hand off tasks that you (and your staff) don’t love or have the time or experience to handle. Whether that’s running payroll, planning against cost overruns, projecting billing rates or warding off cybercriminals — we’ve got you. Outsource your CFO, accounting or IT roles to Wipfli and reclaim time and energy.

Tax services

We take the complexities out of taxes, even if you operate in multiple cities, states or countries. We handle tax planning, reporting and filing — and help you predict the tax consequences of future strategies. From green incentives to research and development tax credits, you need to understand the entire financial picture as you scale. Wipfli brings everything into focus and creates more opportunities for tax-advantaged growth.
