Global defense spending is set to exceed $2 trillion as world economies seek to develop and sustain capability to protect national interests and keep their people safe. Arguably, this is the first duty of government.

Defense capability is a combination of manpower, equipment, training and operations – all underpinned by the physical infrastructure which support them.

Infrastructure is a substantial part of defense spending and covers almost every aspect of activity from command and control to engineering maintenance, and from living accommodation to recreation and welfare. 



WSP provides one of the world’s leading and globally recognised defense infrastructure capabilities, delivering projects in every continent. We understand the core drivers which unite this diverse estate: security, operation, military ethos, through-life performance and, perhaps above all, value for money.


The Middle East defense market is large and complex. It is far and away the world’s third largest after the USA and China, and is the world’s largest importer of foreign defense equipment. This combination is unique, requiring local presence and global reach to unlock – to deliver projects on the ground whilst engaging with global organisations and standards.

WSP are established throughout the GCC and have delivered defense projects in every nation state. We work with national governments, foreign agencies, defense equipment suppliers and civil works contractors and have the breadth and depth in region to address almost any project scope or service. We add particular value to our clients with large or complex requirements.


Think Big…

Our local presence and global capacity enables us to deliver the largest projects from new maritime bases to operational airfields. Deploying large, locally based, multi-disciplinary teams reaching back when required to our global capability in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia.


Think Small...

Small is also beautiful. Our local breadth includes specialist experts and services to deliver complex requirements from security expertise to advise on threat and risk assessment to assuring technical quality by reviewing designs for a new MRO.



Think Again...

WSP take pride in listening, innovating and exceeding client expectations. Every project is unique and we like unique projects. We are supporting a combat training start up in region to blend structure and systems to create a ground breaking, simulated training environment with the potential to change combat training across the world.



We provide assurance to the defense mission, large or small, providing optimised consultancy services to deliver defense infrastructure solutions on time, on quality, and most importantly, on value.
