Our vision

We are WSP 


Today, we are a company of 9,000 people worldwide in over 200 locations. We are part of a global design, engineering and management consultancy, recognised the world over for our expertise in the built and natural environment.  We have won awards, worked on amazing projects and are proud to have some of the world’s most renowned companies as our clients. But we’re not stopping there. We have ambitious growth, diversification and improvement plans.


Global mind-set


We have a clear strategy for growth which is supported by a global mind-set: one vision and one set of values embedded in every part of our business. Our vision is simple. We are aiming to be the best in our marketspace. To us best doesn’t necessarily mean being the largest, having the highest turnover, or even being the most academically acclaimed.


What it does mean is being a market-shaper. Being renowned for our common sense and practical approach. Having a great reputation with clients who wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. Being a great place to work. And of course, being profitable to deliver shareholder value.


We will continue to work locally and internationally to support our clients with their domestic requirements and their global operations. And we will seek to lead by seizing new opportunities, introducing new innovations and offering our clients one company to approach for all of their sustainability and climate change issues.


And of course we want to continue to attract, retain and develop the best talent the market has to offer. Continue our commitment to health and safety and the protection of our people. And continue to manage our impact on the world through a sustainability strategy that is appropriate to our business model.


“It’s a very exciting time to be part of WSP. We are in a unique position in the market bringing both established sustainability and renewable energy advice, coupled with access to international engineering and infrastructure expertise. The challenges we deal with are of huge importance for us today, and for our future generations.


Our unique combination of specialist skills and global delivery enables us to offer the latest thinking to our clients, wherever they need it. That means they can be confident that our solutions will stand the test of time, and that we will be around to support them for many years to come”
Stuart McLachlan, Global Managing Director.
