Increased investment in commercial waterside developments showcases how the modern-day maritime sector is an important driver of local and global economic growth. Recreational use of the marine space needs to be carefully managed to avoid conflict with commercial and military operations. This requires an understanding of the drivers, requirements, and limitations of all sectors involved.
Putting Our Experience to Work
Our reputation for innovative thinking, outstanding service, value enhancement, and environmental responsibility has been earned through our pioneering work on acclaimed projects around the world. Our dedication to environmental stewardship is promoted and enhanced through our daily operations, thereby protecting and sustaining the natural environment for future generations.
WSP's maritime and buildings disciplines have combined their resources to form one of the industry’s premier, international passenger terminal engineering firms. We provide a one-stop shop for the design of moving Ro-Ro and fixed-ramp vehicular access solutions, as well as all types of quayside, port buildings, and facilities. We design ship-to-shore access systems to suit a wide arrangement of vessels, thereby enabling multiple operators to utilize single or multiple berths. Our maritime team has experience with all mooring and fendering systems for ro-ro and passenger vessels, including fendering, quay- and dolphin-mounted bollards.
Currently we have more than 1,200 dedicated personnel providing multi-faceted services that encompass structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems; sustainable design services, including energy modelling through our built ecology group; comprehensive information technology, audio-visual, and security systems design, and architectural lighting design.
