Best-in-Class Project Management

Complex, large-scale projects and programs are unique in terms of their requirements, scope, and priorities. WSP’s approach to project and program management is to consider each project as a distinct entity, integrating each component from a holistic perspective. Project and program management is a true collaboration with our clients in order to ensure project delivery is effective, cost-efficient, and innovative from an overarching perspective. We represent your interests throughout all project phases, with our project/program manager overseeing implementation across the planning, design, procurement, construction, and operations stages.

Our team combines extensive industry experience with best-in- class project management processes, techniques, and tools for success. We develop your delivery strategy, overseeing the planning, organization, and control of the work required to implement that strategy. We then establish an appropriate and effective assurance regime; and identify and address any deviations from the plan as they occur.

WSP in Action

One of the largest privately managed and funded build-operate- transfer (BOT) projects in the world, the Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) line is a fully electrified, double-track system covering 345km. The line connects 14 major cities and 77 townships and regions. The system reaches over 90% of the 23 million island population. Ridership in 2015 exceeded 50 million passengers, with more than 160,000 passengers each day. WSP has played a key role in the development of this mega-size project. Our involvement spans all phases to include feasibility study, program management for implementation concept and strategies, general engineering consultant, and start up and operation support. We worked as part of an integrated team with the THSRC and during the peak had over 100 professionals to assist with the program execution.

In Australia, the Roy Hill Iron Ore Project involved the delivery of a new mine and its process plant, a 344 km heavy haul railway from mine to port, and a new two-berth port facility at Port Hedland. The project also encompassed all non-process infrastructure including airstrip, power, water, access roads, accommodation villages (temporary and permanent), and facilities to support ongoing operations. WSP is engaged as the Project Management Contractor, providing the full scope of assurance services to successfully deliver the project, working closely with the Roy Hill management team. A risk-based approach, high-performance team culture, and quarterly forward-planning cycle underpinned our methodology.
