Kyle Thomson

Technical Director – CFD

 Brisbane

Kyle Thomson is a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng) and Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ). He delivers projects at a range of design phases from pre-feasibility studies to temporary works and issue for construction reports and drawings.

His experience has been in the water resources sector (local government, infrastructure and mining) with key projects involving flood engineering, impact assessments, mitigation and flood management strategies and water balance modelling. Kyle has been involved in a wide variety of projects and has technical and design knowledge particularly in flood and road hydrology, bridge and culvert hydraulics, mine hydrology/hydraulics, rare to extreme flood modelling, forecasting, SBMPs and SWMPs, FIAs, creek diversions, land rehabilitation, CFD, temporary works, Proof Engineering and automation. His background in civil design (Civil3d) has assisted clients with conceptualising designs at an early phase and resolving constructability issues before detailed design.

In a past life Kyle has had critical roles in the flooding and drainage space delivering large scale infrastructure projects including road, rail, mine civil works and solar farms. He was frequently the technical “do-er” using programs like RORB, RAFTS, TUFLOW, HECRAS, Python, DRAINS, MUSIC, CAD etc. He also provided advice for expert witness cases (in particular drainage systems, bridge and culvert crossings) and was the reviewer and verifier for several of these projects. 

Kyle now works directly with clients, local government authorities and various stakeholders to deliver a quality and standard of work traditionally seen with larger, more costly consultancies.
