Put the power of our over 30 years of engineering experience to work for you:
Every one of our commercial building inspections is performed and/or reviewed by a licensed, Professional Engineer with over eight years of training, testing and extensive experience in building condition assessment. Our building inspection reports give clear guidance in conversational language on the current condition of your building and the best way to maintain or repair it.
Criterium-Henderson Engineers designs each property condition assessment report to provide real estate due diligence exceeding ASTM 2018 standards while speaking in plain language to each customer’s unique needs. With Criterium-Henderson Engineers by your side, you can invest with confidence.
Criterium-Henderson Engineers are often called upon to provide forensic insights and testimony during insurance investigations. Our extensive experience and ability to communicate complex concepts clearly provides a clear competitive advantage.
For property owners dealing with construction defects, litigation is rarely the first choice, but it is sometimes unavoidable. Criterium-Henderson Engineers will provide the expert building analysis needed to verify whether a structural or building flaw exists or not. We can advise building owners and their attorneys on the strength or weakness of the structural evidence supporting a defect claim. And if litigation proceeds, we can provide the expert witness testimony that will present the evidence in court, in mediation or in pre-trial negotiations.
Due diligence. Quality assurance. Cost-benefit analysis. One of the leading national field inspection companies for weather barriers, framing, fire rated assemblies, and MEP installations, Criterium-Henderson Engineers field inspectors and construction engineers observe, report, discuss, and resolve—all to get it right, and right on time.
Pre- or post-construction inspection and documentation in accordance with municipal, state, and federal regulations with an eye towards constructability can really reduce your risk. Are your construction contracts, contract documents, and project plan complete and consistent? Can the contractor build to the plans? An independent engineering review by construction knowledgeable professionals complements the work of the design team. In addition to constructability reviews, we also provide shop drawing and submittal reviews to provide assurance on constructability and material compatibility.

From Class A offices to historic retrofits, from large shopping malls to strip centers, condominiums to corner apartments, motels to resort hotels, warehouses, mobile home parks, nursing homes, and hospitals. We’ve seen it all. We’ve set the standard for clear communication, customer service, and excellence in engineering along the way. And we want to be your consulting engineering firm of choice.
