Chris Constant


Director of Code Consulting
Throughout his career, Chris has built a diverse portfolio of projects including healthcare, large venues, retail stores, and everything in between. A fire protection engineer specializing in code consulting, Chris spends his days helping clients ensure their buildings are safe. Whether that means reviewing designs for code conformance, fire and smoke modeling, creating life safety drawings, or diving into code variances to create alternate design approaches, Chris is a collaborative and out-of-the-box thinker who thrives on finding innovative solutions to complex challenges.

As Henderson’s director of code consulting, Chris knows that his role on a project often means being asked difficult questions that haven’t been answered before – but that’s really his favorite part. It’s Chris’s belief that the mark of a good code consultant is the ability to foresee issues and address them early in design to save the project both time and money. With an acute attention to detail and a commitment to good communication, it’s no surprise that clients, team members, and AHJs alike all enjoy working with Chris.
