We deliver well-designed buildings and infrastructure shaped by a profound understanding of the educational requirements of each establishment. WSP has close ties to the communities we work in – we work where we live. Motivated by this connection, our teams are able draw on local and global expertise to support schools, universities, local authorities and government bodies in meeting the high standards demanded by today’s students while responding to the challenges of increasing budgetary constraints, the ever-growing reliance on technology, new expectations from students, security needs and the impacts of climate change.
Sustainable Academic Infrastructure
WSP designs sustainable academic buildings that are healthy, safe and fit for purpose. A positive and productive atmosphere contributes to improved student attention by ensuring high levels of comfort, air quality, natural lighting and acoustics.
It is not just about buildings: our transport specialists develop safe and healthy ways for children to travel to school while reducing traffic congestion and pollution. In addition to designing inherently low-energy buildings, we consider the environmental impact of educational facilities on their surrounding areas, addressing issues such as water, materials, ecology and land use.
