Structural Design

Named by architects year on year as one of the best partners to work with, WSP’s structural design practice brings together the best expertise and specialist knowledge of over 2,300 talented and award-winning designers located in over 500 offices in 40 countries around the world.

Global experts delivering a personal service

Our experience is diverse – and includes delivering iconic super tall and slender buildings, seismic retrofit for heritage buildings, high-tech data centers, rail overbuild, and designing long span retractable roofs for sports stadia. The buildings we engineer perform well throughout their lifetime and make a positive contribution to society and the environment.

Our specialists around the world partner closely with architects early in the design process to help ensure the unique aesthetic vision can be achieved as efficiently as possible. We have experts in specialism such as facades, fire, blast design, ground-born vibrations, cable structures, timber, computational design, earthquake engineering and computational fluid dynamics. We’ve pioneered the use of performance-based design to build higher and slimmer even in severe wind and extreme seismic conditions.

Our teams work together in an agile manner across time zones utilising their global expertise to deliver a personalised service for our clients, wherever they are located.
