Engineering and professional services consultancy WSP, has been appointed by Devon County Council as its partner to deliver Transportation and Engineering Professional services across the county.
Following a competitive procurement process WSP, with offices based in and around Exeter and the wider south west, will deliver on a broad range of services to support a variety of projects, including highway schemes, bridge and structures, transport planning, master planning, walking and cycling schemes, public transport and other public realm enhancements.
As part of the new appointment with Devon County Council, WSP will also form a new relationship with Torbay Council and extend its existing partnership with Dorset Council.
David Stephens, Head of Local Government at WSP, says: This appointment with Devon County Council is hugely positive for our south west team and we look forward to supporting the council as partner and delivering on its many objectives that will benefit communities across Devon.
Cllr Andrea Davis at Devon County Council, says: I am delighted the County Council’s project team has delivered the renewal of this very significant contract on time; I am also pleased that WSP will be using local staff based in Exeter to help deliver the very large capital programme of highway infrastructure works over the next 5 to 10 years.
Councillor Mike Morey, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Environment and Culture for Torbay Council says: We look forward to working with WSP on a range of transport and engineering projects in the future and congratulate them on being awarded this contract.
The new contract adds to WSP’s portfolio of local authority relationships following the successful re-appointment with Lincolnshire County Council on its Professional Design Services Contract.
