In 2005 Mike Thirsk founded Tenet as a private development company undertaking property renovations
By 2006 Tenet acquired the Engineering Consultancy division of DATS and Tenet Consultants was formed
Achieving ISO 9001 accreditation in 2007 and enjoying successful growth supplying major nuclear clients, Tenet moved to larger office space in Thompson House on the Birchwood park. Clients by this time included Amec, BNFL, Magnox and Mott McDonald.
Supporting New Clients
Tenet’s client focus, right first time mantra and attention to quality saw the business continue to increase market share and support additional clients such as, Urenco UK, Atkins, NDA, Yokogawa and Springfields Fuels Ltd.
Again increasing office capacity on B401 Faraday St, Tenet continued to grow organically, Engaging only high quality staff to ensure Tenets reputation in the industry was maintained and to support Blue Chip tenders such as the Sellafield Design Services Alliance.
Now with clients such as Costain, NESL, Cavendish and Nuvia the company was restructured and a larger management team engaged to maintain growth and assure our clients expectations. Tenet increased again its office accommodation to support market growth and its strategic nuclear client base.
Following a restructure in 2016 and reflecting on the changing market, Tenet invested heavily in niche skills to focus on specialist services that our clients struggled to engage. By 2018 Tenet had become one of the first consultancies to achieve BAFE accreditation for the design of fire services.
A New Vision
2019 saw the creation of a new vision and strategy for growth which would continue to provide high quality design engineering and consultancy services to our existing clients. Take our transferable skills to other highly regulated industries, enhance our Mechanical and Project Management capacity and provide a diverse work diet for our staff and associates.
The First Step
The success of our 2019 strategy has led to the remarkable growth of both our mechanical and project management teams. With an expanded client base underscoring our commitment to excellence, our engineering resources have doubled, enabling the adept handling of complex multi discipline projects.. This achievement now forms the bedrock for our continued advancement, as we harness the strengths of these bolstered teams to confidently tackle future challenges and opportunities.

The Next Steps
As we embark on our 2025 strategy, two central pillars come to the forefront: the cultivation of new client connections and a strategic emphasis on collaborating with subcontracting entities. This approach signifies our dedication to expansion and innovation. Our proactive pursuit of new clients aims to unlock opportunities in untapped markets, establishing enduring partnerships along the way. In tandem, our strategic engagement with subcontracting organizations showcases a nuanced understanding of the symbiotic potential within our industry.
