WSP is committed to a partnership with the UC Quake Centre to help improve community resilience in Christchurch, and throughout New Zealand, following the devastation of the Canterbury Earthquakes.
As a leading multi-disciplinary organisation WSP combines local knowledge with global expertise to deliver innovative and creative solutions for what are often complex design challenges. Collaboratively creating sustainable communities, facilities and environments, for generations to come.
WSP is a consultancy with global reach and local connections. They have a rich history dating back to colonial New Zealand creating national road and rail networks through notoriously difficult terrain.
“They have since evolved from a handful of engineers in New Zealand to a global network of more than 3,000 designers, architects, planners and engineers working across Australasia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.”*
In New Zealand, WSP operates from a network of forty offices and employs over 1,700 staff, providing services in the development and management of world-class infrastructure projects for both the public and private sectors.
WSP, lead by Chief Executive David Prentice, subscribe to a company vision where success is a collective, collaborative experience – they are ‘powered by connected expertise.’
The way they work is strongly based in supporting sustainability goals as well as “creating a workplace where everyone views health and safety to be as natural and important as quality, profit and customer service.”*
With commitment to communities at the heart of the WSP culture, they are proud to partner with UC Quake Centre in their work, to help Canterbury communities get back on their feet faster.
