Provide clients with quality acoustical consulting, technology system engineering, and lighting design services at a fair value.

At Thorburn Associates, we are professionals who work hard to provide quality, innovative designs to our clients. TA is a full service Acoustical Consulting, Technology Engineering, and Lighting Design firm. Founded in 1992 by principals who have consulted on and managed more than 2900 projects, we understand that our client’s satisfaction is key to our success. We provide a full range of services which allow the client, architect, or end-user a single point of contact during design and construction.

At TA we are both sensologists and technologists: Acoustic and lighting designs affect the senses and how someone feels within a space; Audiovisual, structured cabling, and security designs are technology-oriented and require attention to detail as well as current knowledge of the industry and where it is headed.

Our team is approachable and accessible, including our principals who are highly involved with all projects. We think holistically about our projects recommending cost effective, functional, and durable solutions.

TA is an independent consulting firm—not associated with the sale of any specific brand-offering unbiased designs to improve communication and fully realize the functionality of all projects. Our staff frequently attends industry events to exchange knowledge with their peers as well as present technical seminars to increase the knowledge base within the industry.
