One Partner, Many Solutions

We may be best-known for providing structural engineering for educational facilities, but we offer much more. From façade design to sustainability certification; from investigation and repair of a poorly performing building to implementation of a cutting-edge security plan; from acoustic and vibration control to resilience consulting; from campus master planning to preservation and repurposing of historic structures we can partner with you to shape holistic solutions that support your mission and deliver long-term value.


Your Priorities Are Our Priorities

With experience, we’ve gained insight. We know that learning facilities must reflect your institution’s culture, values and vision, yet be functional, flexible and sustainable. And we understand that modest construction budgets and ever-changing teaching practices require economical and nimble design solutions.

In the quest to get the best value from design and construction, educational institutions have pioneered the use of innovative delivery models. Public-private partnership (P3), fast-track, design-build and Lean Project Delivery (LPD) – we’ve done them all. And we relish the opportunities for team collaboration and design optimization that they foster.

Optimizing Outcomes

As your partner, we are involved from the get-go – participating in early conversations and asking the right questions to truly understand your goals. And we work collaboratively with architects, facility managers, user groups and contractors to ensure that the entire team is aligned. By embracing this approach, we can focus on the bigger picture – and move your project forward, not only by recommending the system that’s right for your building, but also by offering a more innovative design that optimizes its functionality, all while reducing costs.

On Time & on Budget

At Thornton Tomasetti, we work with you to ensure that projects are completed on time and on budget, in a world where schedules are tight and costs can be limited.
