Through comprehensive surveying, mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) services, WSP provides expertise in analysis methods and modelling techniques. We help clients across all sectors better understand environmental issues, make informed decisions, and apply the appropriate strategies and cost-effective solutions to mitigate them.



WSP provides environmental strategy, policy, consenting, permitting, management and compliance services. We have specialist planners and surveyors in 14 locations around New Zealand.

We work with all levels of government – central, regional and local. We also assist private developers, infrastructure and utility organisations, iwi, hapu and Maori land-holding organisations, community organisations, and transport, port and airport companies.

Collaboration and listening are key to our approach. We seek to really understand our clients’ needs and work closely with them to devise successful solutions. We can quickly pull together a team with the right mix of surveying, planning and engineering expertise. This ensures strong communication, innovation, coordinated project management, and a single point of contact.
