WSP Reaffirms Global Leadership in Engineering Design for Transportation and Other Markets

Following the release of Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) annual rankings for the Top 225 International Design Firms and the Top 150 Global Design firms in 2019 – we are proud to have risen in the rankings for many regions and markets, while maintaining the #1 spot for our work in the Transportation sector.

WSP once again ranked #2 on the list of Top 225 International Design firms (based on design-specific export revenue—generated from projects outside each firm's respective home country; in our case, Canada), and finished #7 on the list of Top 150 Global Design firms (based on total design-specific revenue regardless of where the projects were located).


In addition, we are pleased to have improved in the rankings for the following sectors:

  • #3 in Building (#4 last year)
  • #3 in Power (from #5 last year)
  • #7 in Hazardous Waste (#8 last year)


We are also in the top ten regional rankings, jumping one spot to #2 and #3 respectively, for our work in Europe and Asia/Australia, while maintaining the #2 spot for our work in the United States. As our headquarters are in Canada, we are not ranked for ENR’s Canada region.


Alexandre L’Heureux, Global President and CEO, says, “I am extremely proud of WSP for achieving excellent standings in this year’s ENR rankings. These top-tier placements are a testament to our hard work in 2019, as well the commitment of our people to our company, to each other, to our clients and our communities who continue to place their trust in us.”


Leading the Way in Australia

Like many regions globally, we’re navigating some unique challenges in 2020 in the Transport space.


Our team has adapted well to help our clients over the last six months, finding ways to build back better after the recent bushfires, working collaboratively to help plan the public transport response to COVID-19, and exploring the role of active transport in aiding economic recovery of the nation, and exploring ways to repurpose and future-proof parking structures as fewer commuters drive to our cities.



We also welcomed two additional strategic roles to our Asset Management capability; Jamie Maslan National Technical Executive and Toby Horstead, Principal Asset Management Consultant.
