For decades, WSP has delivered the nation’s most complex infrastructure projects and programs to increase the resiliency and sustainability of our natural and built environments. We provide sustainable, cost-efficient solutions to secure water supply, manage flood risk, improve waterway navigability, and restore and protect aquatic ecosystems.
Our multidiscipline expertise and understanding of interconnected systems enable us to approach problems holistically — from analysis and planning to design and construction management — to support all aspects of civil works projects at every scale. Throughout our work we employ our Future Ready® approach that emphasizes risk analysis and mitigation; accounts for changing conditions and projected trends in climate, society, technology and resources; and incorporates practical adaptation measures to provide resilience to potential isolated or cascading impacts.
Additionally, WSP leverages decades of experience partnering with USACE, FEMA and other federal, state and regional emergency management agencies to prepare for, respond to and help communities’ recovery from severe natural and human-induced disasters. We provide a complete range of emergency management services including preparedness planning and training; disaster response logistics and staffing; recovery activities including structural inspections, demolition monitoring, environmental remediation, and debris removal; and implementation of mitigation projects designed to strengthen local infrastructure and build resilience to future shocks.
