Here at TBT Engineering, we are continually looking for ways to give back to our community and support growing individuals in their pursuits. This year we are very proud to support Superior Science.
Superior Science was able to reach over 3800 youth throughout this year. These kids gained skills in #STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) that will help them in the future and possibly led them on a path to their future careers.
Well done to everyone who helped organize and lead in the activities and camps that were held!

About TBT Consulting Group
TBT Engineering Limited’s roots trace
back to 1968 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The company was sold in 1995 to two young
engineers and aspiring entrepreneurs named Rob and Liana Frenette. They renamed
their new venture Thunder Bay Testing (1995) Limited.
Thunder Bay Testing became known as
Thunder Bay Testing and Engineering in 1997 and later became TBT Engineering
Limited (TBTE) in 2009. The change in 2009 cemented the fact that TBTE was no
longer just a testing laboratory, and no longer served clients only in Thunder
TBT Surveyors Inc. (a wholly owned
subsidiary of TBT Engineering Limited) was formed to allow for the provision of
Legal (Cadastral) Surveying, Geomatics and Reference Plans.
In recognition of the evolving
corporate structure TBT Engineering Consulting Group was subsequently
registered as a trade name for the growing commercial entity. Corporate
acquisitions of Profor Engineering (Mechanical and Electrical) in 2015,
followed by the acquisition of Sostratus Engineering (Structural and Civil
Engineering) in 2016 and then EXP’s Fort Frances and Dryden offices (Surveying
and Geomatics) in 2017 has expanded the company’s ability to provide “One Stop
Shopping” for our clients throughout the region – and beyond!
