Congratulations are in order for Henderson Engineers’ Houston office, which celebrated 15 years in the Bayou City with an open house on Oct. 18th. Opened in 2002, the Houston office was our first expansion outside of our Kansas City headquarters.
Around 60 people gathered to join in the fun, including staff members, architect partners, vendors, general contractors, friends and family. Partygoers enjoyed Cajun snacks, cake, drinks, and the Houston Astros playoff game in various rooms.
“What a great evening of celebration, remembrance, and visioning,” Director of Houston Operations Tom Simmons said. “Henderson started the Houston office in Jason Zoeller’s den. Jason, along with Teresa Huser and Brenton Norton, were quickly joined by Rick Eicher and David Darby, outgrowing the space. They moved into the first national office on Sept. 1st, 2002.
“We were happy to host Jason, Brenton, Rick, and David for the celebration. We couldn’t have picked a better group to begin Henderson’s growth away from Kansas City.”
Guests received Henderson-branded items, including succulents thanking them for “helping us grow,” 15th anniversary branded flashlight sets, coffee mugs, keychain bottle openers, and magnetic koozies.
The Houston team, led by Tom, specializes in designing retail, healthcare, corporate, and warehouse/distribution facilities both in Texas and nationwide. With 24 employees currently, we know this is just the beginning in the Energy Capital of the World.
“As we toasted our past, we fondly looked forward to the next 15 years,” Tom said. “We have tried to assemble a group with the same spirit, talent, and reliance that launched our office those many years ago.”
