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

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

All projects are completed under the direction of BCL’s Senior Principal, Mr. Jerome P. O’Connor, who has over 40 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 International. Our engineers hold professional engineer licenses in 28 states and structural engineer licenses in Illinois and Hawaii.

To complement our experience, BCL works 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 swing stage access to buildings and removal of concrete, asphalt, or roofing cores.

BCL has worked with many 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 and four Canadian provinces, as well as the US Virgin Islands, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Trinidad, and Aruba. We are able and ready to quickly respond to client needs throughout North America and beyond.
