About J Engineering, Development, and Construction Inc.
J Engineering, Development and Construction Inc. was established in 2001 in Jerusalem by Eng. Noach Rappaport as a building contractor. In 2011, ownership was transferred to the hands of “Naeh Civil Engineering Inc.”, owned by Iluz Bros. Caulking and Insulation Inc.
Today, J Engineering, Development, and Construction Inc. deals both in execution and initiation and is classified as a C5 contractor, which allows it to execute projects of unlimited financial and operational scopes.
Throughout the years, J has dealt mainly in execution and has constructed large-scale projects for some of the largest initiators in the Israeli market, including Minrav, Neta Lifshits, Akiva Zuravin, Be’Emuna, and others.
With the publishing of construction tenders for the new city Harish, the company has won rights to several projects, and is now mainly operating as an initiator. Currently, the company conducts various contracting works, solely for the public sector. Among these one may find the construction of a sports center (including a community center, swimming pools and sport halls) for the Elad Municipality, and the construction of kindergartens for the Jerusalem Municipality.
Ilan Iluz, CEO and Owner
Company owner Ilan Iluz is a third generation member of a family specializing in caulking and insulation, tracing its roots to the Ha’achim Group, established in 1922, which was reorganized in 1987, into the newly established Iluz Bros. company. As such, he started his career in caulking and insulating new structures, and in setting up insulation and maintaining wear on old structures, all the while expanding through establishing a parallel business in South Africa.
Later on, Ilan expanded his business into construction execution and in 2010 he established “Naeh Civil Engineering Inc.”, whose flagship project, alongside various other execution projects, was the construction of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Further along, as stated, “Naeh Civil Engineering Inc.” merged with “J Engineering, Initiation and Construction Inc.”, and Ilan now manages all 3 companies in the group.

Building the Jerusalem Waldorf Astoria Hotel
“Naeh Civil Engineering Inc.”, through its merger with “J Engineering, Development, and Construction Inc.”, and under the management of Ilan Iluz, has carried out this flagship project with an unprecedented budget of over $150 Million.
The project included razing and reconstruction, use of advanced building technologies and attention to the smallest detail. Since the hotel was listed for conservation, it was planned with comprehensiveness in mind, in order to combine old and new. It has since won prestigious international competitions for its design, aesthetics, and luxuriousness.
Initiation in Harish
As of now, the company deals mainly in real-estate initiation, and is completing the construction of nearly 500 housing units in Harish. The units are being built in the city’s HaMagaf and HaParsa neighborhoods in three different projects: the Harish Soho project with 243 housing units (4 and 5 room apartments, garden apartments and a penthouse, with a shopping center), the Harish on the Park project with 120 housing units (4 and 5 room apartments, garden apartments and penthouses) with the first underground parking lot of its kind in Harish, and the Harish Plus project, where 110 housing units are to be built.
In this last project, which is now in initiation, the company will also build a commercial center for the benefit of residents. The two former compounds have been completed execution-wise, and the vast majority of apartments has been sold.
