Founded in 1955, Tonkin is proudly employee-owned and operated. We provide engineering and associated services in public works, water, waste, environment, transport, and development.
From its inception, Tonkin established itself as an innovator with the development of Australia’s first stormwater modelling computer application.
A reputation for engineering advancement and cutting-edge technology has been a constant thread throughout our history, and has seen the company diversify into transport engineering, environmental engineering, water engineering, spatial consulting and asset management.
After humble beginnings as a small business, Tonkin has grown to become an accomplished consultancy with a national footprint. Today, Tonkin employs more than 160 people across Australia and has nine offices across five states.
Tonkin understands the challenges faced by local government, including reporting requirements, time demands, community and stakeholder consultation, budget constraints, the political environment, safety and risk management. We work collaboratively to successfully deliver projects and solve community infrastructure challenges.
Working together with our clients, our purpose is to provide exceptional consulting services, staying true to our values – Excellence, Together, Care and Trust – and inspiring people to create a bright future.
