Governments, cities, and businesses face significant challenges related to population growth, resource demands and constraints, and extreme weather events that impact the resiliency and sustainability of our communities. WSP is committed to integrating the principles of sustainability into our work in planning, designing, and managing both property and infrastructure.

Working for the Future

In Australia, WSP has an experienced team of management consultants, scientists, and engineers, all working throughout the life cycle of a project, from strategy to delivery and commissioning to operations, to offer innovative and practical solutions with a strong focus on change management and executive engagement.


In our planning and community development work, we advocate strategies to create vibrant, liveable 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.
