Theodore Roosevelt once said: “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
The 26th President of the United States had a point – and at Tonkin + Taylor we endeavour to work to that philosophy in every facet of what we do.
T+T has a long-standing reputation for delivering outstanding results. We’re New Zealand’s leading environmental and engineering consultancy, with offices in New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and the wider Asia Pacific region.
Our national and international award-winning engineers, scientists, planners and project managers stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in the world.
Equally, their personal and professional values are as important to us as their internationally recognised expertise. For you, that means working alongside people with whom you can build solid, enduring relationships founded on trust.
Our team culture is second to none; T+T is 100 percent employee owned and operated. Our focus is 100 percent on you, your needs, your project, your aspirations to create reliable, well-designed, future-proof infrastructure while maintaining a caring eye on the environment. Because as Teddy Roosevelt also said: "Conservation means development as much as it does protection.”
We shape the interface between people and the environment - earth, water and air - using science and engineering.Natural Hazards
A natural hazard is a threat of a naturally occurring event that will have a negative effect on people, their assets or the environment.
Natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, liquefaction, landslides, coastal erosion, floods, droughts, cyclones and tsunami can often result in a disaster to communities. Climate change can also exacerbate natural hazards, so their effects can vary with time.
Preparedness, protection, emergency response and recovery are the four pillars of our disaster resilience response offering. With more than 40 years’ experience in natural hazard and natural hazard risk management, Tonkin + Taylor has a proven capability at supporting clients through all stages of disaster resilience for events of almost all sizes.
