WSP designs and manages the construction of water and wastewater tunnels, aqueducts, combined sewage overflow (CSO) tunnels and offshore outfalls, and deep shafts in diverse geological conditions.
Water transmission and wastewater conveyance systems underpin the ability of communities to treat, distribute, discharge and reuse water. WSP plans, designs and manages the construction of water transmission and wastewater conveyance systems, including pipe and pump systems, tunnels, aqueducts, CSO storage tunnels, and offshore outfalls. As the world is confronted with climate-change impacts, WSP provides innovative ways to protect communities during floods, reduce strain on water resources and support water availability.
Our experience includes geotechnical investigations and assessments, ground improvement, and tunnelling design, tunnelling in gassy or contaminated ground, and seismic engineering to keep water tunnels operable in the event of earthquakes or other disasters.
WSP design team work extensively with the latest technology such as digital twins to remotely monitor and optimize work activities and perfect schematics in virtual reality, allowing problems to be rectified before ground is broken and reducing the likelihood of surprises arising during construction that could cause delays, extra costs or damage to surrounding structures.
