About T+T

T+T is a 100% New Zealand-owned specialist environmental and engineering consultancy.

We shape the interface between people and the environment - earth, water and air - using science and engineering.

We have a long-standing reputation for delivering innovative solutions and exceptional outcomes for our clients, communities and the environment.

Don’t just take our word for it: in March 2019, our clients voted T+T the ‘Best Engineering Consultancy in Australasia’ at the 2019 Beaton Client Choice Awards.

Our People

“What is the most important thing in the world? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata. It is people, it is people, it is people.”

People are at the heart of T+T. By day, we work on some of the biggest science and engineering projects in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific. But we’re also volunteer firefighters, chefs, painters, triathletes, surfers, coders – and that’s only scratching the surface.

There is strength in diversity here at T+T and we take pride in making sure our company is a place where everyone feels respected, accepted and can be themselves at work.


Old-fashioned consultancies would have you sitting around punching out some clerical work and waiting for you to ‘earn your stripes’ before getting into the fun stuff.

We’re not that.

From day one you’ll hit the ground running, getting out in the field and amongst the action.

"On my second day, I got flown to New Plymouth to do an inspection on a landslip” - Helen Edmiston, Geotechnical Engineer.

"I recommend it because it’s up to you – how far you want to go, how fast you want to progress and with the jobs you want to work on there’s a lot of flexibility”- Jordy Hardacre, Civi Engineer.

With seven different offices, a diverse range of exciting projects and a team of professionals backing you, you’ll be empowered to take control of your career.
