We have long supported the hotel and hospitality industry, helping clients stand out from the crowd with unparalleled comfort, convenience, and quality.
WSP knows hospitality. Over the past few decades, our experts have delivered more than 500 projects across 80 countries, building in-depth experience across all parts of this global industry, from refurbishing heritage hotels to designing vast entertainment complexes, from budget conscious facilities to luxury beach resorts.
Our project experience spans a wide variety of facilities - from the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort in Singapore and the Crown Entertainment Complex in Melbourne to The Shangri-La in the UK, a five-star hotel within The Shard.
With a sensitive approach to design and unrivalled engineering intellect, our teams are perfectly placed to facilitate excellence in the competitive hospitality sector. We work with leading hotel brands, signature architects, property developers and management companies to create exceptional, sustainable, and cost-effective buildings that will generate value for their owners far into the future.
Above all, we know it is the guests who matter most. Whether we’re designing a top-floor swimming pool for an iconic urban high-rise, or building services for a remote mountain hideaway, our sights remain firmly on the end user. That’s how to create places they’ll never want to leave.
Memorable stays made possible
Whatever the budget and wherever the location, hotels and resorts thrive when their customers head home inspired by their experience and eager to return. In a competitive market, that’s not always easy: providing maximum comfort, convenience and entertainment, all in a safe and stylish environment, is a major undertaking.
We understand the need to wow visitors with enhanced views and awe-inspiring features, from triple-height swimming pools to indoor waterfalls, but we also know that fundamentals matter. That means having the right building systems in place to keep your guests comfortable day and night, all year round.
Rewarding investments in hospitality
From family days in the sun to thrilling casino wins, or simply the best night’s sleep you can remember, hotels offer priceless experiences, but owners and operators are well aware of the costs that are entailed in their creation. Therefore, finding value for money in construction and beyond is key for all players in the high-pressure world of hospitality.
We are experts in efficiency. With tight coordination and cutting-edge software, we manage ambitious deadlines and challenging sites to make sure our clients see great results quickly, without compromising guest’s comfort. Whether we’re creating extra space with thinner floor structures or reducing energy bills with state-of-the-art building services, we know how to get the most out of assets – because investments should generate returns, even in paradise.
Inventive engineering solutions
Building top-notch hotels in dramatic locations is no easy task. Our clients face challenges from steep mountain terrain and poor quality soil to extreme climates and flood-prone plains – all on top of the demanding aesthetics of a first-rate facility. These obstacles, however, can be made into a hotel’s greatest asset. Stunning views, far-flung locations, and adventurous activities draw in visitors, giving them experiences to remember and share.
That’s why our teams are dedicated to finding the right engineering solution for every project. Our experts have the experience, ingenuity and resolve to crack the hardest of sites and toughest of briefs, allowing guests to enjoy their surroundings comfortably and safely, in every corner of the world. Our global resources enable us to assemble appropriately skilled teams to meet the unique and varied needs of your project, anywhere in the world.
We are also committed to early-stage involvement in the planning and design of hospitality projects’ surrounding infrastructure, such as road layout, coastal services, and utilities provision.
Preserving the past, protecting the future
For communities, leisure is a serious business. A new resort or a refurbished hotel can bring immense value to an area and its economy, but blending the latest improvements with local history and landscape requires thoughtful and sustainable development.
Our experts understand that sensitivity is a must, whether respecting the unique heritage of a century-old hotel or the fragile natural environment of a new beach resort. We tailor our skills and experience to suit the specific character and setting of every project, while maintaining the consistently high standards our clients stake their reputation upon. Through efficient design and pioneering technology, we find ways to conserve precious water and energy resources, helping set sustainable benchmarks for contemporary hospitality and preserving resources for generations to come.
