Culture & Values

Everything we build, we build The Hensel Phelps way. It’s 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.


You won’t find a leading general contractor anywhere that puts a bigger emphasis on worker safety than we do.


The Hensel Phelps Way is built on four pillars.



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 17 years – that allows us to pass down knowledge to each new generation, and allows our employees to develop into masters of their craft through years of experience. Every Hensel Phelps Employee is cross-trained in every aspect of our operation, and every employee shares in our success through ownership.




Our process, developed in close collaboration with our partners and clients, combines industry knowledge, decades of experience, ingenuity and adaptability. Our extensive training, shared knowledge and trust in each other ensure that the Hensel Phelps Way is applied to every project, delivering the quality that our clients expect.




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. We work only with trusted professional partners, all of whom are well-versed in the Hensel Phelps Way.




While the principles of the Hensel Phelps Way originated with our founding in 1937, it is constantly adapting to take advantage of emerging technologies. We are always looking to revamp our tools to create new efficiencies that translate into better value for our clients, faster building schedules and real-time project reporting for progress and financials. Whether it’s using Building Information Models (BIM) or MEO, our real-time, cloud-based, integrated building and management technology solution, utilizing technology is a critical component of the Hensel Phelps Way.
