On every project, our goal is to offer our clients innovative ideas that meet the triple bottom line of sustainability. We emphasize innovation and creativity in answering the challenges associated with the natural and built environment while carefully balancing social, economic, and environmental imperatives, and we apply this approach across a range of disciplines and sectors.


Working for the Future

WSP has a unique team of management consultants, scientists, and engineers, all working throughout the lifecycle of a project, from strategy to delivery and commissioning to operations, to offer innovative and implementable solutions with a strong focus on change management and executive engagement.

In our planning and community development work, we advocate strategies to create vibrant, livable communities. In the power and energy sector, we contribute to the development of renewable energy sources and the reduction of emissions associated with traditional power generation. For commercial, residential, and institutional buildings, we design “green” systems that conserve energy and other natural resources. Our work in transportation planning and design encourages the development of communities that offer a full range of economic, social, and recreational opportunities. We advise clients, including government agencies, on strategies to reduce carbon emissions and to address the consequences of climate change.
