WHAT DRIVES US
At Henderson, we’ve been known for our people-first culture and focus on client relationships since our firm was started in 1970. We know good design requires great building partners to bring it to life, which is why we offer clients both engineering expertise as Henderson Engineers and construction management experience as Henderson Building Solutions under one roof. Our core values drive all our interactions as we focus on providing the best client – and employee – experience in the industry.
We are proud to be a 100% employee-owned ESOP company with more than 1,000 employees and 250+ PEs across 13 offices who collectively bring our vision and purpose to life. Our vision is to be the firm that builds a better world. We support sustainable building systems that help reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings we help design, and provide our employees a workplace environment that emphasizes diversity, empathy, and acceptance in our all our interactions. Helping people reach their full potential is why we exist; it’s what we strive for inside our own walls and inside the walls of the buildings we help bring to life.
Through Henderson Engineers, we provide a wide array of building system design engineering services across a variety of building types, specializing in six market sectors: Business, Community, Grocery & Distribution, Health, Retail, and Venue. Our sister company, Henderson Building Solutions, is a turnkey construction management and commissioning services firm that provides a seamless bridge between design, construction, and ongoing maintenance.
Together as Henderson Companies, we provide single source solutions for any project. As employee owners, we’re motivated to deliver the best client experience in the industry. We believe in client partnerships and relationships that last beyond just a project. That’s why we deliver solutions that make buildings work.
Our vision is to be the firm that builds a better world both through the buildings we design and the relationships we form. We are committed to providing an equitable work environment for all and to raising our voice for more diversity, empathy, and acceptance in the world around us. We’ve diligently cultivated an inclusive, best-in-class culture where differences are welcomed because we believe it makes us better engineers and more importantly, better people.
Through our diversity, equity, and inclusion DE&I education efforts and our four people resource groups (Empower, Need4Green, REAL, and UNITE), we’re taking steps to foster diversity within our firm and within the industry. Our core values drive us to put people first, lead in innovation, be great partners, and always stay creative.
