Kaaterskill Associates is a trusted resource for the design of new homes and structures, renovation of existing homes and restoration of historical architecture. Because we call Greene County and the surrounding area “home,” architectural firms from across the Hudson Valley and throughout metropolitan New York regularly call upon and collaborate with our design team on projects based in the Windham and Catskill mountain regions and the Hudson Valley. We can be on site quickly and have an intimate knowledge of the area’s land, codes, processes, and regulations.
Kaaterskill’s experience with residential, municipal and commercial projects includes new construction, renovations, and additions. We can also customize pre-packaged home plans to add features you like or to better suit your property. Kaaterskill is also a valuable resource for building code review—we’ll even help you obtain your building permits. Whether we design your home from scratch or modify existing plans, we’ll help you bring your vision to life.
We specialize in cost-effective, energy-efficient design. Kaaterskill’s professional design support team works to have your new construction, renovation, or a building addition project is completed on time and on budget—from foundation plan design and site planning (including septic and storm water design) to environmental assessments and energy and building code compliance. We also collaborate with outside firms and professionals. Although we can’t “rubber stamp” building plans produced outside our office, we can review and finalize those plans and prepare construction drawings from them.
It’s critical that you understand potential environmental risks and conditions—from soil and water contamination to the presence of materials containing asbestos and lead—before you commit to purchasing a property or building for development or renovation. Kaaterskill has on staff a licensed, certified asbestos inspector, enabling us to provide many necessary inspections before your development and renovation projects begin.
When you partner with Kaaterskill, you have the benefit of local eyes and ears while your project is being built, giving you peace of mind that your project is progressing as designed.
Kaaterskill provides professional structural review services to ensure the structural integrity of your home.
Homes that are being renovated often need to become compliant with current building codes. We are well versed in local and state building codes to make sure your renovated property is safely up to date.
When you partner with Kaaterskill, you partner with a regional expert in property, subdivision, residential title, ALTA, and topographical surveys.

Whether you are, looking to build a new structure or addition, or simply want to know the full extent of your property, knowing your property boundaries is important. Kaaterskill will help you identify your property lines and deliver peace of mind.
Kaaterskill works with land developers on major subdivisions, individual property owners on small parcels, and business-minded landowners looking to divide their property to maximize resale value. From initial application and property survey to town board presentations and final map filing, let Kaaterskill guide you through the process.
When you need to know the lay of the land, Kaaterskill will provide you with high-accuracy contour mapping so you can make decisions with confidence. Whether you’re planning the design and layout of buildings, roads, pipelines, or trails, our manual topographic surveys and coordination of aerial surveys will help you identify your property’s contours and features so you can plan your project with precision.
Kaaterskill’s professional land title surveys provide the critical data title, lending and mortgage companies require. Our surveys also meet strict American Land Title Association and American Congress on Surveying and Mapping standards. Kaaterskill’s comprehensive ALTA/ACSM surveys include boundary lines, building locations, easements, rights-of-way, and other elements that can affect land ownership.
In the wake of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, our area’s topography changed dramatically, leaving many residents uncertain about their future flood risk. Kaaterskill was—and continues to be—here to help. Want to know your risk? We’ll prepare a flood elevation certificate for your existing property or help you design your dream home at a safe elevation.
