Our storied heritage is built upon a foundation of transformative ideas and the relentless pursuit of addressing client challenges.

Our partners choose us because of our diversity of expert perspectives within a team culture that continually fosters innovative ideas. We follow a ‘One TKDA’ approach, tailoring our range of expertise to each project’s unique needs, which means teams are thoughtfully assembled and experts are consulted to meet the unique needs of each project. There is no one-size-fits-all approach here, but rather a cross-location, cross-disciplinary approach that brings forth the very best for our clients.
