Hensel Phelps

Hensel Phelps has received many awards and recognition from the Design-Build Institute of America. Our performance is based on our people, processes, collaboration and use of technology. We are committed proponents of design-Build, as it promotes a collaborative setting for all parties to come together to achieve success. We build the Hensel Phelps Way. The Hensel Phelps Way is more than a mantra—it’s a collaborative approach that blends proven processes, innovative technology and effective communication throughout every phase of the project lifecycle. It is the guiding force behind everything we do – and the reason our clients keep coming back to us with their most important projects. The Hensel Phelps Way is built on four pillars: People, Process, Partnership and Technology. Our people are the most dedicated, knowledgeable, highly-trained and skilled builders in the country. We develop and nurture “homegrown” talent—the average tenure of a Hensel Phelps employee is 14 years. Our process, developed in close collaboration with our partners and clients, combines industry knowledge, decades of experience, ingenuity and adaptability to deliver excellence to our clients. At Hensel Phelps, we have longstanding relationships with our clients and our partners—from subcontractors to craft specialists to financing and beyond. We’ve developed these relationships based on mutual respect and earned trust. While the principles of the Hensel Phelps Way originated with our founding in 1937, we constantly adapt them to take advantage of emerging technologies. We are always incorporating new tools to create efficiencies that translate into better value for our clients, faster building schedules and real-time project reporting for progress and financials.

Founded in 1937, Hensel Phelps specializes in building development, construction and facility services. From our humble beginnings as a residential builder in Colorado, Hensel Phelps has grown to serve a diverse range of markets including aviation, government, commercial, corporate office, higher education, correctional, hospitality, justice, transportation, critical facilities, healthcare and transportation. In 2021, ENR rated Hensel Phelps the #1 aviation and #12 overall general contractor. With more than 3,500 employees, Hensel Phelps is one of the largest employee-owned general contracting firms in the United States and serves clients from eight district offices and our corporate headquarters in Greeley, Colorado. Hensel Phelps builds upon a disciplined approach to construction by incorporating new technology to strengthen our processes and deliver predictable results for both public and private sector clients. Hensel Phelps is driven to deliver EXCELLENCE in all we do. This vision plus our core values of Ownership, Integrity, Builder, Diversity and Community, provide the blueprint of how we’ve become the best builder in the United States—and how we’ll thrive far into the future. We pride ourselves not only on our technical abilities, but also our commitment to our valued clients, our trusted employees, and our dedicated trade partners and suppliers. We are pledged to safely delivering the highest quality results, from the conception of a project through construction, operational project readiness and the lifetime of managing the facility.
