Cash Flow Problems

Most architecture and engineering firms fail due to poor cash flow

75% of firms fail fast

1000 architecture firms launch each year. Three-quarters will fail within three years – mainly due to insufficient cash.

Quotes are complex

Architecture and engineering projects are complex. Inaccurate quotes can cost thousands of dollars.

Projects always change

Projects slip and get rescheduled. Goal posts move and regulatory environments cause unexpected issues.


Protect your construction practice with a safety net

Defend your cash flow. Set a healthy cash reserve and track your firm’s ‘death date’ – so you can anticipate and avoid any project issues that might threaten your safety net.

Use your visual forecast to plan engineering, architecture and construction projects – with a confidence score to indicate if your data’s trustworthy

Get proactive warnings ahead of any cash flow issue – like a fine or unexpected project costs that could push your firm into its safety net.

Spreadsheets can’t connect to our accounting software – but Float can. Now our architecture studio can make informed finance and growth decisions, navigate quieter periods – and also manage ballooning workloads.”
