THE EW HOWELL WAY
We have always worked hard to remove the headaches and simplify the complicated construction process for our clients. That’s the value that EW Howell brings, and it runs throughout our entire organization, from estimating, all the way through to our on-site managers. For 130 years, we’ve been perfecting how we approach construction in the New York area, and that means we can do it better than anyone else.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGER /
Over the course of our 130 years, we’ve learned what it takes to survive and succeed in this industry. Flexibility is key, and that flexibility starts with how we approach our role right from the outset. EW Howell is equally comfortable operating as General Contractor or Construction Manager. The main differences are risk, and to what extent the client wishes to be involved in the day-to-day operations. From either perspective, our building process and project management deliver the same high level that our clients have come to expect, and the overarching goal is to remove the complexity for our clients, and build simply.
OF BUILDING EXPERIENCE IN NYC
Founded in 1891, EW Howell is a well established General Construction and Construction Management firm. With offices in Manhattan and on Long Island, we provide construction services throughout the region to a diversity of clients including retail, education, government, cultural and healthcare organizations.
Established first as a builder of fine homes, EW Howell quickly earned a reputation among those with influence, both in Manhattan and on Long Island, constructing elegant Gold Coast estates, many of which still stand today, for clients including the Guggenheim, Pratt, and Hutton families.
As the decades passed, EW Howell continued to grow and evolve with the changing times to become an integral part of the commercial construction industry, and now stands as one of the most prominent construction firms in New York.
Central to EW Howell’s longstanding success is our dedication to every stage of the construction process. From initial planning to ribbon cutting, we maintain a constant flow of communication so that ideas are shared, challenges are surmounted and fresh concepts are born.
