Bentonville, Ark. — Henderson Engineers, a national building systems design firm, announces the September relocation of its Bentonville office from Phyllis Street to 805 S. Walton Blvd., Suite 100. Located on the ground floor of the 8W Center building that sits across the street from Walmart’s home office, the new 12,818-square-foot workspace will house the company’s 40 local employees. The seven-year lease is slated to run through to late 2029.
Headquartered in the Kansas City suburb of Lenexa, Kan., Henderson’s presence in Bentonville began with the 2003 opening of its third office. The 2022 move was initiated by a desire to elevate client experience for business partners across Arkansas and to provide an enhanced working environment for employees. In addition to designing building systems for Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, Henderson’s resume includes projects for other notable Arkansas-based businesses and institutions such as the University of Arkansas, Ozark Beer Company, Sam’s Club, and Tyson Foods. Quilt of Parks, Alice L. Walton School of Medicine, Roller Ambulatory Surgery Center, and J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family Children’s Safety Center of Washington County are among the major Henderson projects in the pipeline within the region.
“As we approach our 20-year anniversary in Arkansas, this move reinforces our commitment to Bentonville and to clients across the state who entrust our experts with delivering great projects,” said Kevin Lewis, president and CEO of Henderson Engineers. “We’re also eager to continue to tap into the solid talent in the region, which continues to establish itself as a center for innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.”
Henderson’s Bentonville office is overseen by JD Elder, a practice manager who serves as the regional office leader. Additional oversight is provided by Managing Principals Arron Cooper and Mike Fall.
“The business community in Northwest Arkansas welcomed us with open arms nearly two decades ago and we’re thankful for the continued success we’ve enjoyed statewide,” said Cooper, a 26-year Henderson veteran who was a co-founder of the original Bentonville office. “The pandemic showed that we can successfully operate our business without being on-site every day, so we embrace hybrid and remote work throughout our company. The new space gives employees a vibrant environment to work together and be creative when they come into the office, and we’re excited to be settling in.”
