The 2019 Australian Infrastructure Audit revealed that over the past decade, AUD20 billion dollars’ worth of projects in Australia were delayed, cancelled or mothballed due to community opposition.
Together with the University of Technology Sydney, in 2019 we released a joint body of research titled Setting Up Projects for Success. Our research uncovered that if technology can be used more effectively, then we could help projects and their stakeholders build stronger relationships with community members ultimately supporting quicker delivery with less disruption..
WSP’s Online Community Portal combines planning studies, environmental approvals data, design specifications and general project information into one comprehensive, digital application. It brings your project’s story to life and orients information around what matters most to your community - the activities that are taking place in their backyard.
It offers a flexible, accessible and interactive platform that helps our clients provide certainty in an uncertain environment. Our clients can build trust and confidence with communities by providing clear, concise and transparent information about a project and the benefits it will create.
