About Us

At The Lighthouse Companies our goal is to provide a common sense engineering approach to real estate development and acquisition.

Alan Levine founded the company in 2010 when he realized that many engineering consultants were far too conservative in their approach and were therefore not able to fully meet the needs of their clients. With his strong background and more than 20 years of experience in engineering, Alan believes in a common sense approach to problem solving and when appropriate and necessary, searching for non-traditional, creative solutions to your engineering needs, all within your required timeline – that's why our clients come back to us again and again.

We are headquartered in the Chicago area with offices in Florida, Hawaii, Texas and Wisconsin. Our engineers are licensed to work in the following states: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Wisconsin.


“I have found The Lighthouse Companies to be easy to work with, conscientious, knowledgeable, and able to find workable solutions to some very tricky site conditions.”
