Filip was born and raised in New York.

As the son of an owner of a construction company, Filip early on was exposed to NYC construction. He quickly realized that he has a profound interest in high quality builds.  Relying on his technical background in both construction management and civil engineering, Filip started LW Construction in 2012.

Filip’s approach is one of individualized attention.  He is personally involved in each and every project, and responsible for the timely and efficient progress of each build.  He devotes time and attention to understanding each project’s materials and. He recognizes that the construction process can be foreign to most, and thus ensures to keep all his clients apprised of his process, approach, and reasoning.

Filip very much enjoys what he does, and has been told it comes through in LW’s finished work product.


LW Construction is a high-end residential construction company servicing Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the metro area.

We specialize on design-driven and material-focused living spaces.  Our projects have ranged from an 1864 townhome in West Chelsea to a penthouse in the tallest building on the Upper East Side.

We anchor our business on our long-standing in-house crew of tradesman and craftsman who are knowledgeable about materials, have developed better construction processes and standards, and understand the components of a living home.  We surpass expectations, while delivering projects on time, controlling budgets, maintain an open line of communication, and operating within the client’s set constraints.

We stand by our work, which is evident from our client experiences and ongoing relationships with architects, designers, and engineers.  We encourage you to seek out feedback on our company.  Our clients will attest to our professionalism, integrity, exceptional management support, and quality.


I am an Account Executive for a well-established luxury Coop and Condo management company in Manhattan. Filip and LW Construction were referred to me from a Broker friend of mine when I was looking for a new contractor to renovate an apartment for one of my Resident Managers. His company did high quality work at a very competitive price. During the renovation, he discovered a mold situation from a previous leak that he remediated quickly and efficiently.
The work his company completed was of such high quality, that when my wife and I were looking for a contractor to renovate our bathroom, we hired him to do the work.
The attention to detail his team took with the installation of our marble to the skim coat of paint on our walls was meticulous. Additionally, the work was completed within the timeframe they initially promised and great measures were taken to mitigate construction dust and debris.

LW Construction delivered a phenomenal customer experience.  Fil was my primary point of contact, and his thoughtfulness gave me confidence throughout the project.  The quality workmanship catches the attention anyone who visits my home. After the project, I heard positive comments from my building’s somewhat jaded staff about the professionalism of Fil’s team and his frequent on-site presence to personally check details.  LW Construction delivered on their well-organized project plan, crafted creative solutions when changes were needed, and worked with integrity… even when no one was looking.”

Carolyn – West Village Residence

LW Construction were great at communicating what they could and couldn’t do. Project was delivered with the quality we were expecting and within the time frame promised.

Sharon – Chelsea Apartment

Working with LW Construction was exactly what I was hoping for when I renovated my apartment in Chelsea.  They were creative, hardworking and upfront about every stage and challenge thru out the process.
I especially enjoyed the crew that worked every day with me and the architect. Open to changes and excellent problem solvers, they were a delight to work with and even my neighbors became friends with them.
I couldn’t recommend LW higher. They’re a positive, efficient and trustworthy group and made my renovation as easy and fun as possible.

Tate – West Chelsea Historic Townhome

The process with LW Construction was seamless from day one. We couldn’t be happier with the level of communication they provided and the quality of work they delivered on our home renovation

Hayley – Charles St Residence

I have relied and trusted Filip and LW Construction for all my projects at my condo apt. in NYC. The entire team takes pride in their work and it shows in the end results with amazing attention to detail that have always far exceeded my expectations. I have continued to turn to them for my all construction, renovation needs for over a decade now. Filip is upfront, always responsive and will walk you thru the entire process to ensure that the renovation goes smoothly to ensure you will be satisfied and happy with the end result.

Stephen – LES Apartment

Having lived in a luxury co-op apartment for over 30 years, I have had many experiences with various construction and painting companies. When I was unsatisfied with the quote from one company used by my neighbor, I asked friends for referrals and discovered LW Construction. I was pleasantly surprised by their professionalism, efficiency, and quality of service. They were able to suggest new paints of superior quality than previous companies had used and the results were beyond my expectations. I was also impressed that they worked around my schedule and were very respectful not to disrupt me while I was at home. I would certainly use them again for any size project and recommend them to friends without hesitation.

Elizabeth – Sutton Place Apartment

Filip and his crew have worked on my roof deck over the past five years.  I’ve asked Filip to do some unusual projects that require a lot of creativity.  Some have been small, and some pretty large.  It has been great to work with Filip.  He is conscientious and always keeps his appointments and returns phone calls.  He is open and honest about pricing, and I think he very fair.  His work is excellent.  And most important, he stands behind his work.  I cannot recommend him enough.

Anthony – West Chelsea Apartment

We have done two significant renovations with Filip and can say with confidence that he is one of the best contractors in the city. The quality of his team’s work is outstanding and as a perfectionist obsessed about the details, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to a fellow perfectionist. He gets the job done perfectly.
In addition to doing beautiful work, he is a trusted partner—working collaboratively with us to meet our goals and offering innovative and aesthetically pleasing solutions to the unexpected problems that inevitably pop up during the renovation of an old building.
Finally, both Filip and his crew are a cut above. All of them are not only highly skilled experts and attentive to every detail, they are friendly, dependable, and a pleasure to work with. We felt totally comfortable with them working in our house without us and trusted them to finish our latest project while we were out of state for a month. They even have the courtesy to laugh at my husband’s terrible jokes!

Joon & David – East Village and UWS Apartments

Filip and his crew are delightful to work with. They are professional, prompt in getting back to you and have very high standards.
Whether it’s a complicated restoration job or a relatively simple paint job, he wants you to be happy and he prides himself on delivering excellent results.

Adrienne – East Village Penthouse

Filip did a terrific job on my apartment on the Upper East Side. He is friendly, responsive, and a quick study. I appreciated his clarity and honesty on the project’s cost. I will be sure to use his services again.

Davide – UES Apartment

We are so thankful that we met Fil!  Before we began working with him, we had endured the stereotypical pain and suffering Manhattanites often feel when going through renovation processes – folks showing up late and going over budget due to ‘surprises’ that inevitably seem to come up.
Through recommendations – and then upon meeting him – we saw that Fil ensures that transparency and honesty are at his core, antithetical to what the contractor nightmare has become in NYC.  But as importantly, his quality of work is superb.  He worked hand-in-hand with my wife and our architect to ensure the work quality was reflective of her aesthetic taste and in-lime with the highest end contractors in the city.  We are two years into his work (please don’t judge me for a delayed testimonial!), and his product continues to impress without flaw.  Worthy of a quick anecdote – once our shower was complete, my wife decided that she wanted to change the locations of the hand showers – a task that most contractors would hear and immediately start rolling their eyes.  Fil listened patiently, indulged her design wants (much more than I did), and was happy to make the change as quickly as they could without complaint.  And the result was perfect.  We can’t wait to work with him again on another job.

Will - Tribeca Apartment

LW was a pleasure to work with – not only is the finished place stunning, but they were so respectful of our space and our neighbors as well. Filip also provided a lot of helpful insight during the design phase that helped us determine how to proceed with our project. The whole team was truly a joy to be around! So grateful that we worked with them and am excited to continue in the future for our next phases.

Hanna – Brooklyn Duplex

We had an outstanding experience working with Filip and his team. We were in a challenging, and somewhat vulnerable position having purchased a new home with ambitions to do some substantial work upfront. Filip was consultative, honest, and fair, and he managed our expectations from a timing and cost standpoint wonderfully. He found us many opportunities to save money and speed up the process throughout the project. Perhaps most importantly, the work was beautifully and carefully done, and we are thrilled with out new home. Filip has out business going forward, and we expect to use him and his team for subsequent projects down the line.

Michael – Park Slope Carriage House

Filip Lech is the guy you want renovating your home.
He’s personable, straightforward, and honest – three traits that normally wouldn’t be associated with General Contracting – which makes it all the better that his work product is second to none, easily comparable with the elite companies of New York City.
He employs a top-notch group of in-house guys, to not only maintain quality control, but to ensure that they care just as much about the work as he does. It also adds value versus the alternative model of having everything subcontracted out. Ask for Darek on your job – you won’t find a better Site Foreman anywhere around.
You may not get a Schedule on letterhead, or Meeting Minutes formally typed up, but what you ARE going to get is an executed project of the highest quality, for a fair & honest price, delivered on time.
Please feel free to reach out to me at any time with further questions or concerns. In a process, full of complexity and uncertainty, I promise, this is an easy choice.

Alex Butler – Alexander Butler Design Services

We love working with LW Construction. They have an incredibly professional and responsive team who have done amazing work to make our designs a reality for our clients. Most importantly,  our clients and everyone on the design greatly value the attention to detail and pride that LW Construction puts into their every aspect of the project.

Andrew Herbert - ArchitectureAF

Filip and his team are a dream to work with; they are reliable, diligent and thoughtful – the qualities so desired and seldom found in a contractor. They’ve completed two high end residential projects with us in NYC and we are very happy with the end result and follow-up care. In both cases, our clients have been incredibly happy through to the end, which makes all the difference for us. Their quality of work and clear communication make the process as painless as it gets. We look forward to working with them again!
