Jensen Hughes is a professional engineering and consulting services company headquartered in Baltimore that provides services, software, and consulting in fire protection engineering, forensic engineering, and security.[1] It has approximately 90 offices globally in part due to its acquisitions of and mergers with related safety and security middle-market companies in recent years.[2] As of 2019, it has been led by CEO Raj Arora.[3] The company's projects span conducting forensic investigations of fire accident scenes on behalf of local courts,[4] studying fire dynamics of chemicals with the National Institute of Justice,[5] and working with healthcare associations to stock local clinical practices and hospitals with PPE and other medical supplies.[6]

History and acquisitions[edit]

Hughes Associates, a fire protection engineering consultant, was founded in 1980 in Baltimore and, among other projects, performed safety upgrades to historic buildings and landmarks such as the Library of Congress.[7] In 2011, as part of a larger movement into the professional services sector, the private equity firm Huron Capital partners signed an agreement with the management team of Hughes Associates to recapitalize the business.[8] The business later became Jensen Hughes following a merger with Rolf Jensen & Associates, Inc.,[9][10] a firm founded by Illinois Institute of Technology professor and safety engineer Rolf Jensen.[11] In 2015, Gryphon Investors acquired Jensen Hughes from Huron Capital partners.[12] Since then, Jensen Hughes itself has gone on to acquire additional companies.[13][14]

Awards and scholarships[edit]

Jensen Hughes has placed in the Building Design + Construction Top 80 Engineering Firms list[15] and, in 2019, it placed in two of Engineering News-Record lists, Top 225 International Design Firms and Top 500 Design firms.[16][17] In 2018, Siemens awarded Jensen Hughes its annual Engineering Innovation Award for Fire and Life Safety Design.[18]

Jensen Hughes endows the yearly Rolf H. Jensen Award for Outstanding Committee Service through the Society of Fire Protection Engineers.[19] It also sponsors the Jensen Hughes Graduate Fire Safety Award at the University of Waterloo.[20]
