Experience. Expertise. Excellence.

Whether it’s a skyscraper or a stadium, a hospital or a hangar, a commercial structure or a residential complex, there’s nothing we haven’t done. But we also realize that no two projects are exactly the same. We draw on our strengths – a collaborative culture, an innovation mindset, expertise across disciplines and a passion for problem-solving – to meet structural challenges big and small.

Do you need to push boundaries? Rewrite rules? Do what’s never been done before? At Thornton Tomasetti, your vision is our mission. We’ve worked with architects on a multitude of extraordinary projects, from Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Tower to The Shed in New York – and we’re hungry for more. We deliver innovative structural solutions to help you design spaces that are unique, unforgettable, inspiring, iconic.

We've Got Your Back

Whether we’re collaborating on a competition or offering regular input during design, we work as your partner throughout the entire process. And by playing an active role from the beginning, we gain a deeper understanding of your goals and can proactively define solutions with you. When challenges arise, we think critically and work collaboratively to deliver the answer that’s right for your project. We make communication a top priority – responding quickly to requests and offering seamless support throughout design and construction.

Relentless Pursuit of Innovation

We’re passionate problem solvers. So we’re eager to implement technologies that unlock our creativity and transform design and construction. And when the tools we need don’t already exist, we invent our own. We use technology to deliver high-level analysis, make complex concepts clear, and create interoperability that amplifies teamwork.

But we don’t limit innovation to technology. Our creative engineers look for better ways to meet old challenges, and ingenious techniques for solving new problems. We also embrace promising methods and trends – we were early leaders in fast-track, design-build, integrated project delivery (IPD) and lean project delivery (LPD).

We innovate with one goal in mind: to optimize your project – its design and its processes – to make it the best it can be.

Broad Abilities. Better Results. 

Thornton Tomasetti’s multidisciplinary team has experience beyond traditional structural engineering – in everything from sustainability and kinetics to façade engineering and protective design. Whatever your project needs, we have the resources and talent to take on your toughest challenges and deliver an integrated solution.

We Care about Your Bottom Line

Today’s engineers can design just about anything. But not everyone can do it on time and on budget. We collaborate with clients, design partners and builders to deliver designs that raise the bar without breaking the bank.

Every Type, Everywhere

Our structural engineers design new buildings, expansions and renovations of every type: aviation, commercial and residential, critical facilities, cultural and community, education, defense, energy, government, healthcare and research, hospitality and gaming, sports and convention centers, tall, supertall and megatall buildings, transportation and more.

With 50-plus offices, we’ve got teams on the ground worldwide. This means that no matter where you are or who you're working with, our people can understand your project’s nuances.
