Sacramento Engineering Consultants


Sacramento Engineering Consultants was established in 1989, as a descendant of an electrical contracting and engineering firm owned by Rickert Henriksen. Originally a two-person firm, we have flourished to become a 21 person company serving the engineering needs of the Sacramento area, California and 47 other states.
