About the Business

NDY is a global sustainable engineering consultancy and operates in 12 locations spanning 4 continents. Our core engineering services are enhanced by specialist consulting services including digital building advisory, tuning and commissioning, performance based fire engineering, acoustics and architectural creative lighting. NDY is also part of Tetra Tech, Inc., a global alliance offering consulting, engineering, and technical services. With a purpose of ‘Leading with Science’, and more than 16,000 associates in 400 offices around the globe, Tetra Tech enhances NDYs delivery of smart and sustainable solutions to clients through a much larger global network of experts.

Our Global Sustainability Group (GSG) is a strategic collective within Tetra Tech that works directly with organisations, affiliate groups and individuals to help them understand and respond to the full magnitude of sustainability challenges.

We are a specialist advisory group that can act exclusively, but preferably as part of an integrated NDY/Tetra Tech approach and this elevates our offering above others. We work exclusively on a skills-leadership basis, in which people lead and work on projects that best match their experience and project appreciation. Our group operates at all levels within organisations, from advising on macro environmental and social issues to executives, through to masterplanning towns and cities and delivering world class engineering sustainable design.

We provide substance to our advisory work.
