About – Meet The Team


We are a small but experienced team from engineering, architectural and surveying backgrounds.

After graduating with a Civil Engineering degree Tom joined Red 7 Marine, an established marine civil engineering company. Following a successful few years assisting on projects including the Thames Cable Car, St George’s Wharf Pier and Bradwell Power Station, he decided to start his own surveying and technical drawing business from where THS Concepts was born!

Tom’s role in THS Concepts is mainly office-based, but he occasionally ventures out to undertake topographical and monitoring surveys.

Rolo The Labrador

Trainee Good Dog

Rolo the Labrador (Tom’s dog) plays an integral part in stress reduction and ongoing harmony within the office.

Day to day Rolo can be found skulking around the office either stealing shoes or trying to get attention from those that will give it to him. His favourite toy is his chew rope which he enjoys playing tug-of-war with.

Ron The Spaniel

Senior Good Dog

Ron lives with Chris and is a 9 year old Springer Spaniel. He pops by the office every now and again to ensure everybody is working to our high company standards.

His key skills involve wrestling with Rolo, begging for treats and keeping an eye out for delivery men. Ron particularly enjoys attention and loves a scratch and tickle from members of staff.
