Convention and Civic

Convention centres and civic buildings showcase popular interests, and enhance our appreciation of science and technology, history and the arts. The best ones add value to the community by inspiring visitors while stimulating economic development.

Creating Inspirational Destinations

Focused on supporting civic life, WSP understands the challenges of developing convention centres and civic buildings that act as catalysts for urban vitality and community prosperity. 


With a sensitive approach to design and unrivalled engineering skill, our teams work closely with public and private sector organisations to create inspirational destinations – exceptional, sustainable and cost-effective buildings that will generate value for their owners and meet the needs of the end-users.


Iconic Infrastructure

We enjoy long-term relationships with governments, cities and councils throughout the world, from Sydney to Auckland, Helsinki to Dubai, and from Toronto to Johannesburg. Our portfolio includes municipal infrastructure, civic and government buildings, urban regeneration, public realm, and convention centres.


Our work for the government sector spans our entire range of capabilities and we offer significant expertise in complex financing options such as PPP.


High Profile Buildings

Our varied portfolio of high-profile projects includes civic buildings such as libraries, museums and art galleries; and social infrastructure such as schools, hospitals, courthouses and prisons, as well as convention centres. We employ an integrated approach to produce solutions that embrace the natural environment, community requirements and community activities. 

In addition to engineering design, we provide specialist services, such as technical advice and due diligence, procurement support, project management and property asset management. 


Multi-Disciplinary Services

Our extensive multi-discipline capability enables us to provide a full range of design, project management and environmental consultancy services at every stage of your project – from strategic planning and analysis, through engineering and construction, to maintenance and operations.

Our integrated and flexible structure means we can deliver reliable and robust outcomes that support any budget and program requirements and exceed environmental objectives.
