Code Consulting

Henderson code professionals are fire protection engineers that know design, enforcement, and construction. We dive deep into all aspects of codes, design, and life safety. Our credentials lead the industry: former fire department and building officials, multiple National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and International Code Council (ICC) certifications and awards for thought leadership, and memberships on multiple code and standards technical committees.

At Henderson, we are problem solvers. We will find the right solution for your healthcare, federal government, high rise, assembly, collegiate, sports, retail, residential, and commercial projects.
