Tonkin Consulting is a 60-year veteran of technical services in SA with a commitment to the concept of water as a precious resource.

From humble beginnings in 1955 in Skip Tonkin’s garage at Woodville West, the company has grown into a successful, thriving engineering, environmental and spatial consulting business.

Stormwater management was one of the first sectors the young business was involved in, and it now enjoys a reputation for cutting edge technology across a spectrum of engineering services.

Water Utilities Manager Carmen Wentrock says having effective treatment and distribution systems that provide clean water is fundamental for our health and life quality. She says Tonkin delivers this through capabilities which include:

The company has more than 30 water professionals providing planning and design services to water utilities across Australia, as well as being a leading service provider to constructors involved in project delivery.

Carmen says there is a commitment to continually adopting new and emerging technologies and techniques which conserve supplies and improve quality.

“Professional and technical expertise is obviously important, but we’re also committed to building relationships, emphasising safety and respecting the environment”, Carmen says.
