Henderson Engineers Celebrates Five Years in Los Angeles


Sept. 13, 2019

LOS ANGELES – Henderson Engineers is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its Los Angeles office this month. Over the last five years, Henderson has worked on more than 6,800 projects in California, including a number of high-profile locations in the Los Angeles area.

“We have something special going on in our Los Angeles office and are thrilled to celebrate five years in one of the country’s largest markets,” said Henderson Engineers President & CEO Rich Smith. “Our Los Angeles office and our firm’s work on the west coast have both grown exponentially over that time. We credit that growth to foster our unique Henderson culture in our downtown office and create the type of environment that people want to be part of — employees and clients.”

Some of Henderson’s most notable Los Angeles projects include:

  • Los Angeles Stadium & Entertainment District at Hollywood Park
  • Los Angeles Unified School District/Taft High School
  • Los Angeles Convention Center
  • Downtown LA Proper Hotel
  • Second Home Hollywood
  • Jordan Downs Plaza
  • Container Yard
  • The MacArthur
  • Damien
  • Musso & Frank Grill

The Los Angeles office officially opened in Sept. 2014 with three employees and has since grown to almost 40 people. In 2019, Henderson was named a Best Place to Work in the large company category by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

“I moved to Los Angeles to help open our office five years ago,” said Henderson Los Angeles Director of Operations Austin Allen. “We have worked hard to build our brand awareness and strengthen our relationships throughout southern California. Our clients trust us to deliver great work, and they love to come to our legendary game nights and just hang out with our team. We’re proud to be involved in so many impactful local projects as well as others around the country.”
