WSP is leading the way in infrastructure megaproject in Canada, again topping the list in ReNew Canada’s Top100 Projects report.
The annual report ranks the 100 largest public sector infrastructure projects, by dollar value, currently under development in Canada. Projects included on the list are only those that are in active assessment, procurement or construction, have a defined scope and project value, and have the necessary financial backing to move forward.
WSP proudly plays key roles in projects across all the development sectors highlighted in the report: transit, transportation, energy, buildings, and water-wastewater. From the environmental assessments and pre-feasibility designs, to construction management and commissioning services, WSP provides solutions for every step of the development process.
The Top100 Projects report lists all companies playing key roles in each project, with over 400 companies listed in the annual report. That includes Golder, whose acquisition, expected to be completed in the first half of 2021, will increase WSP’s footprint in the report from 57 projects to 70 projects.
