NEW YORK — Thornton Tomasetti, an international engineering firm, has announced the acquisition of Fore Solutions, a green building consulting firm that Thornton Tomasetti said will allow it to significantly expand its sustainability consulting services and integrate green objectives across all its practices.

The new Building Sustainability practice will be headed by Gunnar Hubbard, Fore Solution’s principal and founder, who becomes a principal at Thornton Tomasetti. Wolfgang Werner, formerly director of sustainability, becomes a vice president and head of the practice’s eastern United States region.

According to Thornton Tomasetti, by 2015, approximately half of new construction in the United States is estimated to incorporate some measure of sustainability. With the creation of its Green Building Strategy Team in 2007 and a sustainability department in 2010, the firm started offering sustainability services and performing sustainability project work. The company said the addition of Fore Solutions will greatly advance its sustainability services effort to address clients’ needs for high-performance, energy-efficient buildings.

The Fore Solutions team will remain based in Portland, Maine, which is now a Thornton Tomasetti office within the eastern U.S. region.
