About Us

Thorndon Cook Ltd is a New Zealand based engineering consultancy passionate about applying our technical knowledge to benefit communities and clients.

We provide a full range of engineering services to clients in the power and energy industry worldwide. We trade as Thorndon Cook Power in the power market.

Our History

Thorndon Cook was formed at the beginning of 2015 as WSP - Parsons Brinckerhoff restructured its involvement in the power sector in the Asia-Pacific region. The staff of the PB Power Thermal Group and the Geothermal centre of excellence in New Zealand have formed a new company structured to better match the highly competitive international market for these services.

The company name reflects the original PB Power Wellington and Auckland offices located in Thorndon Quay and Cook Street. Thorndon Cook looks forward to building on the reputation for excellence in engineering, project management and development advice that had its beginnings in the Thorndon Quay and Cook Street offices.
