About us

WSP is one of the world’s leading professional services firms providing services in the built and natural environment – and wherever you are in the UK, you’re never far from one of WSP’s success stories. From the tallest buildings to the deepest rail projects, from the broadest car parks to the narrowest mines, we’ve delivered our clients’ aspirations.

 

We see possibilities, not problems

We know that without our clients, there would be no WSP, no great projects, and no big ideas. So we invest considerable time in building relationships – to understand our clients’ aspirations and their needs.

It means we do more than deliver the obvious. We seek constant improvements. We are motivated to exceed expectations and to find ways of solving problems that are more effective, more exciting and more sustainable.

We draw on our expertise to find effective, efficient and sustainable ways of meeting our clients’ needs. We work to be outstanding in everything we do, for the public and private sectors, in the UK and overseas.

We also understand the financial imperative. So we bring our creativity and our innovation to bear as we seek to reduce costs and add value in every way we can.

Ideas are exciting. Making them reality is even better.

We’re proud that so many of the game-changing ideas in engineering today have been championed by our people. We were the first to fully exploit the opportunities offered by Business Information Modelling (BIM). Our innovative design meant the Shard was constructed with minimal disruption to London’s commuters.

We strive to find innovations that can reduce costs or create more value for the client on every piece of work, big or small. And if we can move a feature, change a material or reduce the size of something to give our client commercial advantage, we will.

We know we make a difference. Our people shape the UK’s built and natural environment. They know that the places where we all live and work would not be the same without their expertise.

Driven by shared values

We’re a people business. We have 2,500 employees in a network of offices across the UK, all sharing the values of collaboration, innovation and pride and passion for our work. And safety and sustainability are embedded in everything that we do.

We have world-class people in every area of engineering consultancy. If we don’t have the right expertise in the UK, we know one of our 15,000 strong network across 35 countries will. We learn from each other as we deliver the highest quality solution for our clients. 

Our work is serious fun. We enjoy working with our colleagues and we know that everyone has a contribution to make. We respect our clients, our colleagues, our partners and the environment, and we do the best we can by each of them.
