our story

From our local beginnings over 130 years ago to our vast international presence today, WSP has enjoyed continuous growth and enrichment of its service offering. Every milestone reached has enabled us to better fulfill our purpose of preparing our communities and environment for the future.


WSP Today

WSP is a globally recognized professional services firm employing approximately 49,000 people. 

We welcomed 5,000 experts from ten different acquisitions in 2017, adding to existing expertise in all our operating regions. The largest team to join us was Opus International Consultants Limited, a 3,000-employee professional services firm headquartered in New Zealand, with additional offices in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

A major highlight of the year was our corporate rebrand: we became WSP across all our businesses in all geographic regions.

Always be the first choice for clients, partners and employees

Our story in Romania

WSP has been operating in Romania since 2006, with headquarters in Bucharest. At that time, the country's accession to the European Union and increasing investments across all markets have made Romania an attractive country for investors.

At the beginning, WSP Romania was operating as a design and engineering consultant on various disciplines, such as mechanical, electrical engineering, environmental, transport and infrastructure. WSP quickly gained prestige providing high-class engineering services on the local market, with a perfect mix of international know-how, specific knowledge of Romanian planning requirements and local legislation.

In 2009, the Buildings team got involved in sustainability design and acquired licence in green buildings certification. Ever since, along with BREEAM and LEED, the team gained extensive knowledge and experience in green design, turning it into a core activity. In 2011, we extended our project portfolio with additional international projects, developing a dedicated collaboration with other countries such as Sweden.
