KOW Building Consultants (also known as Kenneth O. Wille and Associates, Inc.) provides construction consultation services to traditional banks, private lenders, mortgage lending institutions, state housing agencies, city housing agencies, mezzanine lenders and other financial institutions. We provide engineering and building consulting services throughout the country, but we specialize in the greater New York City metropolitan, Tri-State, New England and Middle Atlantic regions. Our office is located on Long Island just outside New York City, and we also have operating consultants in the New York State Capital Region, and in New Jersey.
The firm was founded in 1978 by Kenneth O. Wille, P.E., who provided construction loan monitoring and property condition assessment services for New York City projects. From Mr. Wille’s initial vision, the company has grown to employ technical plan reviewers and construction monitors from various backgrounds, including civil engineering, electrical engineering, architecture, building code inspectors, construction management and construction lending.
Our in-depth understanding of the underlying construction and building principles and the financial landscape of today’s market is part of the reason we are so successful in what we do. We make sure that each individual on our staff has a solid general construction and engineering background, as well as specialized knowledge in their particular area of expertise.
Every construction consultant we have on staff boasts a wide variety of certifications, including Professional Engineering Licenses, Certified Construction Inspectors, Building Code Inspectors (NYS), Residential Home Inspectors, and New York City Certified Construction Superintendents. While this proven team approach yields great dividends for our clients, we do not hesitate to seek guidance and opinions from other outside sources, as might be required for particular projects.Contact us today to receive more information or to discuss how we can help with your upcoming project.
