Helping the UK’s communities prosper

As the world around us changes at pace, at WSP we have an unwavering focus on connecting people with places. Whether that’s by planning more efficient local public transport or designing a new school campus, communities and social value are what drives us.

At WSP, we develop pioneering and sustainable solutions that keep our towns, cities and rural communities going today, and in the future. We understand that every place has its own set of unique needs, challenges and potential opportunities. Our people, with their international and UK experience come together to help local authorities navigate the complexities they face to make our places thrive.

The main uniting challenge faced by local authorities across the UK is the need to meet our carbon net-zero targets. We understand the long- and short-term effects that climate change has from a national, regional and even local angle and never hesitate to ensure that environmental resilience is built-in to all of our projects.
