Future Ready

We know that our future world will be very different from today’s in many ways. Future Ready is our program to see the future more clearly, and to work with clients to design for this future as well as for today’s needs.


Are you Future Ready?

Global innovation program

Through Future Ready, WSP brings clarity and vision to complex challenges. We see the future more clearly through key trends in climate change, society, technology and resources, and challenge staff to work with our clients to advise on solutions that are both ready for today and for this future.

The future is now

We know from our research across the world that current design codes don’t necessarily account for the future we’re anticipating. With the Future Ready program, our experts are able to help our clients prepare for future realities of self-driving cars, ubiquitous renewables, ultra-flexible places, more severe weather events and increasing loneliness, amongst many factors.

Integrating future trends

We know there’s a huge job ahead of us to make existing infrastructure ready for the future. Including future trends in our advice to clients helps them plan for the long-term and makes good business sense. There are many ways we can make our projects Future Ready at no additional cost; in fact the whole idea is that it leads to lower overall costs because our thinking and designs have a future bias.

Ready for rapid urbanisation, ready for heavier rainfall and hotter temperatures, and ready for a more connected world. We are thrilled to share our insight and knowledge.
