WSP designs aesthetic and effective lighting for all projects, including tunnels, roads, rail and transit, and airports.

At WSP, we provide creative, energy-efficient lighting solutions for all types of projects. Our well-planned lighting schemes are fully integrated with the architecture, provide visual comfort and are adapted to the needs of the end-user while creating spaces that are inspiring and responsive.

Well-designed lighting can enhance all aspects of the human experience. Not only does it provide an understanding of form, space and material but it also affects our senses, our emotions, our health and well- being.

Lighting design can be the difference between effective infrastructure and missing the mark. Good lighting design brings many benefits including the prevention of night-time road accidents, the provision of a safe environment for both motorists and pedestrians and enable a safe, 24-hour community.

Innovations such as adaptive lighting and the application of LED light sources and control systems can reduce energy and carbon costs, while ensuring correct lighting performances which can make transportation safer.

Putting Our Experience to Work for You

We offer bespoke lighting solutions for both interior and exterior projects, across diverse environmental challenges from the Arctic Circle to the Equator. Our lighting designs aim not only to be visually captivating, but to also sit suitably within the environment in which they are located, while also being buildable and maintainable and embracing new technologies. We take key environmental factors into account, including sustainability in the use of energy, as well as ecological factors relating to fauna and flora and obtrusive light.

Lighting design

At WSP, we contribute our expertise to the development of national and international standards for lighting design and engineering through our membership and active participation on instrumental committees and panels, including: the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP), the Society of Light & Lighting (SLL) the Institution of Engineering Technology (IET), the International Lighting Commission (CIE Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage) and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). These partnerships have resulted in the establishment of industry guidelines and, ultimately, a better lit world.

Our lighting design team comprises a diverse group of individuals including designers, architects, engineers, ecologists, daylighting experts, technicians and academics who design lighting projects around the world. With an extensive background in roadway, bridge, tunnel and mass transit lighting design, fixture design and manufacturing, lighting computation and construction support, WSP is experienced in defining appropriate lighting systems including the applicable control and electrical network requirements incorporating main and emergency power supplies.
