Director of Fire & Life Safety | Vice President Chris Culp comes to Henderson Engineers each morning eager to work with a team of experts he manages as a vice president and our director of fire & life safety. He leads one of the largest fire protection groups in the country — a dedicated team that works cooperatively to design systems they hope our clients will never have to use. Chris is a self-described fire protection engi-nerd, digging into the specifics of exhilarating challenges. He relishes in the details and is always thinking 10 steps ahead, planning out exactly how the project team can reach cost-effective and code-compliant solutions. Chris is deeply focused on the safety of his clients — as well as the people who will be living in, using, and enjoying the buildings he helps protect. It’s what drives him to get out of bed and keeps his fire burning every day.
