The engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti announced this week that it is expanding into Canada with the opening of an office in Toronto.

Thornton Tomasetti already has a working relationship with the nation. The firm has worked with Canadian architects, designers, and consultants on more than 50 projects over the last 30 years. Current projects include structural design and façade optimization analysis for Edmonton’s Rogers Place, a new 1.4 million-sf arena for the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, and structural design for the expansion of Toronto’s BMO Field.

“Expanding into Canada is a key strategic initiative of our five-year plan,” Thomas Z. Scarangello, P.E., Chairman and CEO of Thornton Tomasetti, said in a statement. “As we look to grow our business, Canada is a natural fit. We have considerable project experience there and an extensive client base. It is also a market in which our services are recognized and valued. We look forward to bringing the centers of excellence of our 10 practices to Canada.”

The Toronto office will be managed by Associate Principal Chris Minerva, who last ran the Toronto office of MMM Group. Thornton Tomasetti has 38 offices across the globe in places like Brazil, Vietnam, the United Kingdom, and China, and it has 22 offices and its New York headquarters in the United States.
