Hazard analysis and concept development. Design and construction. Commissioning and operational support. Decommissioning and site restoration. We have the skills and experience to fully support your onshore and offshore operations and developments.

We combine rigorous engineering with management best practices to reduce risks to your personnel and assets, as well as to the environment. Our team applies innovative techniques in analysis, simulation, and thermal and fluid mechanics to our risk management, design and engineering work.

Panotour Solutions

We've developed virtual tour solutions, which have proven to be an invaluable resource, from site survey work. The initial objective was to capture data on normally unmanned offshore platforms, giving engineers an easily accessible visual reference when discussing and planning work remotely. The data captured is processed into a bespoke 360-degree virtual tour that can be securely hosted by Thornton Tomasetti or on the client’s own server for ease of access through a browser. This technology has been readily adopted across a wide range of projects. An example of the output is shown above.
