We Know Buildings!About Us: a team of engineers inspecting a building

Criterium Engineers, one of North America’s leading consulting engineering firms, is committed to helping building owners, real estate investors, contractors and homeowner associations understand the buildings they own, build, manage, or purchase. We know buildings of all types, from major hospitality, institutional and transportation facilities to high rise multi-family to townhouses to single family homes.

We Know Buildings

Since 1957, Criterium Engineers has evaluated more than 850,000 buildings across the U.S. and Canada. We look at more than 15,000 buildings and visit more than 100 construction sites every year.

Our staff of licensed, Professional Engineers offer skills in structural, civil, and mechanical engineering, project management, and much more. From diagnostics to due diligence, from commissioning to envelope performance to HVAC systems, we help our clients with even the most complex projects.

We welcome the opportunity to prove our value to each of our clients. Our proven reputation and consistent professionalism have made Criterium Engineers the engineering firm of choice for many of the nation’s leading investors, builders, and developers.

We are licensed, Professional Engineers

Being a licensed, Professional Engineer is a career commitment and mindset guided by ethics, technical competence, clear communication, and legal accountability. It is a calling.

In most states, becoming a licensed, Professional Engineer (P.E.), requires:

  • a four-year engineering degree,
  • at least four years of work experience under a Professional Engineer,
  • passing two intensive competency exams,
  • licensing by the state board, and
  • ongoing maintenance, improvement of skills, and continuing education throughout their career.

More about us: each Criterium engineer has invested years mastering a rigorous, demanding technical and professional discipline. This expertise and experience makes a difference for our clients and their ability to understand the buildings in which they live and work. You can trust us to ask the right questions, pay attention to detail, see and solve problems, and provide quiet wisdom you can count on. And we never forget the most important part of every building we inspect: the people who call it their home or workplace.

We work with people, so they can know their buildings.

Yes, we are proven engineering experts, but it is our ability to communicate our understanding of a building’s performance to our clients that truly sets Criterium apart. Building real relationships with our clients matters. We understand the complicated logistics of managing multi-million-dollar development projects as well the excitement and apprehension of buying a first home. In fact, many of our engineers have worked in the building trades or served on homeowners association boards, so we relate to our clients and understand their priorities.
