I work in local or central government, IWI and community services

Here at Thomas Consultants, we understand what makes a successful project partnership with local and central government agencies. In fact, working with public agencies is how we began some 17 years ago. We grew from a single public project and have since grown into a thriving multidisciplinary consultancy. We’re proud of the strong track record and relationships we have built over this time working on large scale public projects both nationally and throughout the Pacific.

What has contributed to our growth? Well, we think it helps that our people have a genuine passion for creating great outcomes for the people you serve. We care about delivering high quality and cost-effective projects for local and central government. These values are what drive us to give you our very best.

We also believe the Thomas Civil way of working makes the whole process, from tender through to project sign off, clear and straightforward. We understand the complexities of public sector projects and our experienced consultants can give you the innovative solutions – put in plain English – that you need.
