Infrastructure acts as the city’s silent partner. It is the resources that make our daily lives possible– running water, flushing toilets, electricity, railways, roads and bridges. All these resources provide communities and organisations access to fundamental services ensuring they are sustainable and resilient. At WSP, we have a long-standing track record of successful delivery of preeminent and internationally significant infrastructure projects, alongside an outstanding portfolio of local, community-based initiatives.
The planning approval system is complex and not only can we advise on policy, regulations and viability we also employ experts who live where they work, know the fabric of the city and the culture of that community as we strive to make places the best that they can be. We’re also learning from a global pool of experts to bring the very best expertise and knowledge to your project, wherever in the world you are.
Putting Our Experience to Work for You
We have amassed decades of experience and technical understanding which enables us to secure successful outcomes for our clients by integrating environmental, engineering, economic, political, and social factors directly into our process. This combined with our Future Ready programme means our planning is viable, implementable and focused on enhancing future opportunities.
We understand the variable routes to achieving necessary stakeholder support across all sectors, from property and buildings and roads and highways, to rail, water and energy. We advise on infrastructure risks and solutions supported by clear technical justification to best determine the viability of schemes and to progress discussions with planning authorities. We secure necessary consents to enable projects to be delivered. Our aim is to find the most sustainable infrastructure solution for your project and the community it serves, while keeping down costs, managing cash flow, and meeting your program’s timeline.
Our experience ranges from existing facilities, coordinating with surrounding developments, or looking at new schemes and we advise on the best approach across the project life cycle. We also perform asset/program management planning services to ensure the long term operational and financial sustainability of infrastructure in your city.
We work in partnership with your team to provide the consulting and advisory services required to develop the asset management planning approaches and strategies that best fit your circumstances. Our services also include asset evaluations, asset lifecycle studies, and reserve fund adequacy studies.
