Resources & Masterplanning

Creating a sustainable and a future-proof development, urban area, city or region relies on careful and holistic planning. At WSP we have worked on some great market leading projects in this area and can utilise the extensive expertise across WSP Group to ensure we provide an integrated and holistic strategy to feed your infrastructure and masterplan.


We have experts in energy, waste, water, transport, ICT, building engineering, green building design, flooding, ecology, acoustics and many more.


And we have utilised this collective expertise for projects such as the world’s first zero-carbon zero-waste car-free city, Masdar in Abu Dhabi. Commissioned by the architects Foster + Partners, we developed integrated infrastructure strategies into the concept masterplan. Integral aspects included waste management, the supply, treatment and drainage of water, the distribution of energy and power, and the development of systems for IT, telecommunications and cooling.


Our expertise can enable the delivery of developments that can cope with flooding. That can keep cool in warming climates. That emit zero carbon emissions. That eliminate waste. That are powered by clean energy. We future-proof your strategies and integrate sustainability into both built and open spaces. We will integrate considerations into the masterplan that identifies efficiencies, creates cost savings and can reduce construction times.
