Successful projects demand strong pre and post contract commercial management, detailed surveys of existing structures, robust commercial controls, strategic procurement advice and a sound contracting strategy. Experience shows that applying these strengths to the early stages of a project ensures the profitable management of projects and contracts from inception to completion, as well as the identification and development of business opportunities.


At WSP, our team acts as an extension of a clients’ organisation, to provide solid expertise in linking the operational requirements of your business with key corporate functions, including finance, legal and risk. 


Our commercial management service begins with developing the right commercial strategy to achieve our client’s objectives. We then provide expertise in the review of existing buildings, through the development of specifications, then the bidding and procurement phases and in the contractual negotiations. A key part of our services is to monitor and ensure robust contract compliance and risk management. 


WSP has a long-standing track record in all project delivery structures in the UK – including PPP, joint ventures, SPVs and consortiums. This includes preparing detailed specifications and effective contract documents, carefully assessing business risks and ensuring that projects are commercially focused at the outset as well as throughout the projects’ lifecycles. We add value to a wide range of projects, from infrastructure developments such as the Manchester Metrolink to Lot 2 of the Highways England Specialist Professional and Technical Services (SPaTS) framework.
