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.
Why Criterium Engineers?
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.
Are you eager to control the trajectory of your own career? Are you a business executive with experience in fields like construction, architecture, real estate development, aerospace or tech? Are you a strong communicator with a passion for customer service? And—most importantly—do you love buildings?
What makes a good Criterium franchisee?
No single profile describes a typical Criterium franchisee. Many are licensed, Professional Engineers, some are Registered Architects, and others have varied backgrounds in construction, facilities management, sales, management, design or technical fields.
But there are a few things they all have in common:
Technical expertise – they are very good at what they do.
An entrepreneurial spirit – they want to own and run their own business.
People skills – they don’t care only about buildings. They also care about the people who live and work in them, and they’re skilled in building long-term relationships with clients
Training And Support
Training begins with an intensive 5-day course for new franchisees at our corporate office in Maine. But it doesn’t end there. Training and continuing education are cornerstones of the Criterium Engineers affiliate program. After you return to your office and get started, we will spend another 5 days with you to be sure you are headed in the right direction. Every other year, we host a conference with featured speakers addressing a wide range of engineering and business development topics. We also sponsor additional programs, webinars and seminars periodically, to keep our engineers updated and informed about relevant engineering- and real estate-related developments and trends.
