Bringing Buildings to Life

To us, the phrase — life of the building — has multiple meanings. First, is the actual lifetime of the buildings we design. We believe no project is ever truly finished even after the grand opening. We’re there as a trusted advisor throughout the life of the building to help maintain, operate, monitor, and understand your new space. Together with Henderson Building Solutions, our wholly-owned subsidiary, we’re changing the industry by bridging the gaps between design, operation, and building maintenance. Our goal is to make the industry and the building process better and more collaborative.

Second, the building systems we design literally bring buildings to life. People may not really think about the systems we touch. They are often the unseen elements tucked away in the ceiling, walls, and floors but without light, warmth, safety, water, wi-fi — a building is simply a structure. That’s why to us, life of the building also means what take place in the buildings  — the life that happens there. We want to design welcoming environments where people can advance thought, drive industry, or come together to celebrate.

We have always been a company that believes in building life and helping people reach their full potential. It’s an inherent part of our culture, and it’s part of what makes us different. We apply that same mentality to our projects and the people who will live their lives in our buildings — the end users. We don’t want to be a typical engineering firm simply churning out drawings; we want to create environments where people can do more. We strive to understand the end user’s desired experience and deliver a design that delivers that experience by asking the right questions. And we do that because we care about building life in the spaces we create. That’s how we help our customers and their customers reach their full potential as well.
