J.S. Held has acquired Construction Process Solutions, a national construction consulting firm that provides project management support, dispute resolution services, expert testimony, bond default analyses, and building forensic investigations.
The acquisition complements J.S. Held’s portfolio of professional services in construction consulting and strengthens the company’s Construction Advisory division.
