The Business Sector is where life happens. It’s the buildings where we work and play, the warehouses that store our goods, groceries, and controlled environment agriculture operations, and the critical facilities that support our data-driven infrastructure – or sometimes a mix of it all. We design the building systems inside these spaces to be flexible and resilient with an emphasis on productivity and well-being. Our focus is on our clients’ end goals, sustainable operational needs, and tenant comfort to deliver environments that benefit businesses and the communities around them.

Full of passion, creativity, and wisdom, our leadership is highly collaborative and committed to delivering nothing but the best. Henderson’s vision is to build a better world, and we believe that starts with leaders who embody our company culture and core values.
