Henderson Building Solutions Hires New Lead Commissioning Agent

LENEXA, Kan. — Henderson Building Solutions, the construction management company owned by Henderson Engineers, has hired Jason Jenkins as lead commissioning agent. Jenkins, a licensed Professional Engineer who brings 15 years of experience to the role, is responsible for ensuring functionality and durability requirements are met on construction projects. This involves conducting design reviews before construction begins as well as testing building systems after projects are completed to ensure equipment was accurately installed, is functioning appropriately, and can be maintained as needed. As part of Henderson Building’s retro-commissioning service, Jenkins will also commission existing structures to evaluate whether they are operating efficiently.

“We’re thrilled to have Jason as the newest addition to our talented team of commissioning experts,” said Steve Hancock, managing director at Henderson Building. “Experienced commissioning agents like him are vital for the long-term stability of buildings. We’re looking forward to his contributions in ensuring our projects are up to par with the quality our clients rely on us to deliver.”

Jenkins was formerly a branch manager at sys-tek, a commissioning and engineering design firm where he kickstarted his career a decade and a half ago and rose through the ranks. In that role, he oversaw commissioning, HVAC Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing (TAB), and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design services for a variety of industries. This includes healthcare, public sector, education, data centers, industrial, and laboratories. Commissioning a 720,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center for Garmin International, the GPS technology firm, is among his most noteworthy projects.

“I’ve worked in the engineering sector in the Kansas City area my entire career and have always had great respect for Henderson Engineers,” said Jenkins. “It’s exciting to join the team and I’m eager to make a lasting impact for our clients. I view my role as bringing a layer of accountability to projects by making sure everything on the front end and back end is performing as intended, which prevents issues from arising down the road. No two jobs are the same and I enjoy collaborating with everyone involved, from designers to contractors, to make sure the end result is of the highest quality possible.”

Jenkins is a graduate of the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering. He holds a BCxP certification from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Commissioning professionals who earn this credential demonstrate a high proficiency for overseeing commissioning for new and existing buildings.
