Criterium-Bennett Engineers is a full service consulting engineering firm. Since 2016, we have provided our clients with the most complete building inspection services available throughout New Hampshire. We specialize in working with existing buildings offering services which include inspection, diagnostics, maintenance planning and problem solving.

Unlike other inspection and reserve study services, all Criterium inspections are conducted or reviewed by licensed Professional Engineers. As a result, Criterium can provide you with a level of accountability and professionalism that sets us apart in the inspection industry. All our inspections are conducted by experienced engineers with:

  • Technical Degrees

  • Peer Reviews

Our engineers have experience with residential, municipal, industrial and institutional projects. Our client list includes condominium associations, insurance companies, relocation companies, government agencies and property management companies.

Criterium-Bennett Engineers is part of Criterium Engineers, an international engineering consulting company founded in 1957 with offices in more than 30 states. Criterium-Bennett Engineers is a consulting engineering company specializing in residential and commercial building inspection and consulting services.  

Our leading edge engineering services include condominium and homeowner association reserve studies, commercial property condition assessments, phase I environmental site assessments and residential and commercial structural evaluations.  Our many clients, including buyers, owners, lenders and others concerned with the condition of homes and buildings, repeatedly comment on our consistently high level of inspection and consultation services.


The quality and usefulness of any building inspection is only as good as the knowledge and experience of the professional performing the inspection. Experience is vital since many judgements must be based on the visible evidence. Criterium-Bennett Engineers are expert at picking up subtle visual nuances which may signal a problem. Understanding the technology of buildings is also critically important to interpreting the significance of observed condition.
