WSP is pleased to announce the acquisition of Odeh Engineers, a 40-person structural engineering firm with offices in Providence, Rhode Island and Boston, Massachusetts.
The transaction adds structural engineering capabilities for the property and buildings sector in the Northeastern United States, while strengthening WSP’s offering in complex markets like healthcare and science and technology, as well as in commercial, residential, higher education, cultural, government, manufacturing, and other key sectors.
“I would like to welcome Odeh Engineers to WSP,” said Alexandre L’Heureux, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The addition of the Odeh team will contribute to adding depth and breadth to our structural engineering capabilities in the US, expanding the solutions we can bring to our clients in the building sector and beyond.”
“The addition of Odeh will help us deliver on the goals laid out in our 2022-2024 strategic plan, bringing expanded services to our complex market clients in the critical Northeast region,” said Lou Cornell, president and chief executive officer for WSP USA. “We welcome these new professionals and their deep expertise.”

Odeh, principal of Odeh. “We look forward to delivering the personalized client service and innovative structural engineering solutions for which we are known, while accessing the expanded network of expertise, digital tools and resources now available to us as part of WSP.”
