The Glorious Journey

A legacy of structures since 1975

In a city that is home to some historic structures like the Pune University and the famed Shaniwarwada, an alumnus of the College of Engineering Pune became the backbone of notable landmarks, in India and many other countries.

Prof. Y S Sane founded a structural consultancy practice in the year 1975, an organisation that has become a trusted and well-known name in the field of structural consultancy. Started as a proprietary practice, it has now evolved into JW Consultants LLP.

Over four decades, JW Consultants LLP has stayed true to the meticulously selected tenets of professional practice, while combining superior design and quality standards with stringent compliance.

Over the years, JW Consultants LLP has been driven by innovation and has created its footprint across residential, commercial, industrial, retail, institutional, hospitality, and healthcare sectors, among others. This presence goes beyond Indian borders and has left its mark on structures in Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Tanzania and many more countires.

In recent times, JW has delivered more than 7 million square metres of space, in terms of design, in a single year. With its head office in Pune, and a well-established infrastructure that involves a skilled workforce, a time-tested design process, latest technology and international standard software platforms, JW is always ready to serve its esteemed clientele.
