Pavements and Concrete Technology

Our roads and bridges are travelled by millions of commuters daily resulting in wear and tear. These roadways and structures are in constant need of assessment to ensure that remain safe. Rehabilitation and the construction projects for roads and bridges are essential to our expanding and new infrastructure developments.


WSP provides services for the structural design of new flexible and rigid pavement structures, rehabilitation of existing highways. WSP routinely conducts pavement condition surveys that identify the different distresses which are recommended for treatment after field investigation. WSP is MTO approved for High Complexity in Pavement Design under Medium Complexity in Pavement Engineering as well as Medium Complexity in Foundation Engineering. WSP is registered in MTO’s RAQS for all Specialties under Pavement Engineering.

 Our services include:

  • Pavement Evaluation – Flexible and Rigid
  • Soils and Pavement Investigations – Routine and Complex
  • Pavement Design – Low, Medium and High Complexity
