We’ll help you predict and control the natural environment.

Theakston Environmental Control is a Canadian company offering unique Consulting Engineering services as experts in predicting and controlling the natural environment. The firm provides services to both private and public sectors across Canada, the United States, and abroad. The scope of studies has evolved to include wind pressure analysis, numerical and physical exhaust gas dispersion, pedestrian level wind velocity studies, snow accumulation studies, sun/shade studies, force balance analysis, and particulate dispersion modeling.

Theakston Environmental provides you, the client, with practical, cost effective solutions at the planning stage or upon realization of an existing or potential problem. Theakston Environmental is committed to ensuring the effectiveness of the proposed solution not only during laboratory testing but upon implementation at your site.

Problems confronting architects, planners, and engineers are studied efficiently by constructing exact scale models of the existing site and proposed structures. Model testing in combination with computational analysis provides complete understanding of the environment under study.

We offer consulting services independently, or, as part of a team able to take a broad view of our client’s needs. Our people seek to provide appropriate solutions, taking into account the human and environmental dimensions of the project. We use modern methods including physical model analysis and computational analysis to provide accurate, detailed results.

Physical Modeling & Analysis

An open channel water flume is one method used by Theakston Environmental to conduct modular analysis. Water simulates the flow characteristics of wind allowing detailed evaluation of anticipated microclimatic conditions for the site. The results are superior where visual examination or quantitative analysis are advantageous in decision making.
