Building Consultants, Ltd., was formed to provide clients with quality engineering services at a reasonable price. The firm specializes in building-related services, particularly those concerning resolution of problems in existing buildings. We have accumulated expertise in three primary areas of engineering: structural engineering, exterior wall consulting and roof design.

We frequently serve our clients who are interested in purchasing a property by visiting the property before the purchase to identify capital projects and deferred maintenance items which may have to be rectified upon purchase of the building.

As we are a small business, all projects are performed under the direction of BCL’s Senior Principal, Mr. Jerome P. O’Connor, who has 39 years of experience in building projects. Mr. O’Connor has written many papers on technical topics. He is a member of ASCE, ACI, CSI and ASTM. Our engineers hold professional engineer licenses in 28 states and structural engineer licenses in Illinois and Hawaii.

To complement BCL’s experience, we work with affiliated consultants in a variety of fields on a regular basis. These include architects, materials engineers, metallurgists and environmental scientists. In addition, we regularly work with contracting firms that can provide such services as swingstage access to buildings and removal of concrete, asphalt or roofing cores.

We have worked with a number of international hotel ownership groups, commercial property owners, real estate firms and attorneys, as well as architectural and engineering firms. We have completed projects in 42 states; four Canadian provinces; and the US Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Trinidad and Aruba. We are able and ready to quickly respond to client needs throughout North America and beyond.
