THE NEW YORK CONSTRUCTION EXPERTS
There is not a more complex construction environment than New York. Whether it’s logistics, regulatory issues, space constraints, city mandates or timelines, EW Howell Construction Group has been honing our construction experience for over 132 years across Long Island and the New York Metro area.

ABOUT

THE EW HOWELL WAY

For over 132 years, we’ve strived to remove the headaches and simplify the complicated construction process for our clients. This level of value that EW Howell has become known for runs throughout the entire organization. We’ve been perfecting how we approach construction in the New York area, and that means we do it better than anyone else.

Our Mission is to provide the highest level of construction quality, safety, competitive pricing, and on-time performance through unparalleled customer service and teamwork. We seek to provide satisfaction to our clients, challenge and fulfillment to our staff, and profitability to our shareholders, while conducting all our actions with the highest level of integrity.

OUR CORE VALUES

INTEGRITY

We hold ourselves and others accountable to uphold the highest ethical standards.

QUALITY

We take pride in delivering only the very best.

RESILIENCE

We find ways to win together no matter the obstacles.

RELATIONSHIP

We foster trust among our partners and our team.

“The PM’s are key, they need to be familiar with healthcare. We have a lot more requirements than general construction has.”
“With EW Howell they try to eliminate problems, and work out win-win situations for all involved.”
“Howell’s understanding of publicly active spaces gave us the confidence that they could handle our project.”
“At the interview, Howell demonstrated a working knowledge of our project as well as the cultural center space.
“EW Howell hand picks the team that’s right for the project, not just the team that’s available right now.”
“EW Howell strictly manages estimating and scheduling, because for schools, an ‘open date’ is not a suggestion.”

CONSTRUCTION MANAGER /
GENERAL CONTRACTOR

For 132 years and counting, we’ve learned what it takes to succeed in the construction industry. Flexibility is key and it 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. No matter our role, our building process and project management deliver the same high level of quality that our clients have come to expect. Our 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.

In the decades that followed, EW Howell grew and evolved with the changing times, becoming an integral part of the commercial construction industry. Now, we stand as one of the most prominent New York construction firms.

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.
