Smart transit planning and expansion and modernization of rail services are vital to the creation of a future that will be more sustainable, more resilient, more customer-centric and more equitable. WSP’s experts provide a full range of planning, design, engineering and management services for the complete rail project life cycle, with a focus on helping clients deliver transformational services to their communities and customers.
Modernizing Roads and Bridges
Road infrastructure in America is in need of updates, and more than one-third of U.S. bridges are in disrepair. Economic recovery begins with strategic road and bridge improvements, as these vital lifelines are critical for moving an ever-increasing number of people and goods. WSP’s experts plan, design and manage the construction and operations of the roads and bridges of tomorrow, with a focus on resilience, sustainability, equity, smart technologies, and safety for all users, including cyclists and pedestrians.
Powering Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles (EV) have proven to be the future of the automotive industry, but U.S. market share of plug-in electric vehicle sales is only one-third that of the Chinese market. Building out reliable EV charging infrastructure will increase U.S. adoption of these vehicles, aiding the U.S. response to the climate crisis. WSP’s experts help clients understand the future of the EV public recharging ecosystem, considerations for the public and private sector, strategy development, and infrastructure planning.
Transitioning to Zero-Emission Technology
Cities are being hit with record levels of smog and congestion from fossil fuel-based transportation modes and are also increasingly concerned about climate change and are seeking solutions to reduce their carbon footprints. WSP’s experts use innovative technology and design solutions to advance the adoption of zero-emission in public and private bus fleets.
Delivering Clean Drinking Water for All
Water infrastructure owners and operators face myriad challenges in providing safe and reliable drinking water to every household, business, school and other community facility. With a focus on long-term operational sustainability, system resilience and equitable supply, WSP partners with clients to solve for population growth, aging infrastructure, source diversification, regulatory compliance and extreme weather events, to make sure everyone has access to this critical resource.
Creating a Modern, Reliable Energy Grid
Recent events in Texas, California and elsewhere have demonstrated the urgent need for modernization of the U.S. energy grid. New power transmission and distribution infrastructure is critical to keep pace with demand and to accommodate the coming influx of renewable energy sources. WSP leverages the skills and experience of experts in renewable energy – including wind, solar, hydropower, and hydrogen – as well as in power generation and delivery to help clients meet clean energy objectives and deliver reliable, efficient power.
Advancing Equitable Environmental Remediation
Shirley Chisholm State Park, Brooklyn, NY
From brownfield and superfund sites to abandoned mines and orphan oil and gas wells, to contaminated lands and groundwater from industry, pollution is a nationwide problem often affecting our most vulnerable populations. WSP manages legacy issues by mitigating the risks posed by historical land use, protecting current assets through monitoring and management, applying strategies to address a dynamic regulatory landscape, and implementing innovative remedial designs that support site recovery, reinvestment and transformation.
Designing Sustainable Airports
Aging infrastructure, facilities operating over or near capacity, and demand for more modern amenities are pushing airport owners to jump-start aggressive capital improvement programs. WSP delivers integrated services for the development, operation and maintenance of airport buildings and infrastructure, including roadways, bridges, tunnels, transit systems, terminals, parking garages, consolidated rental car facilities, central utility plants and distributed energy systems.
Delivering Future Ready™ Maritime Solutions
Maritime transport is the backbone of international trade and therefore vital to the economy. 70% of all goods are carried by sea and transit through ports before being transferred to another mode of transportation. WSP works with port authorities and terminal operators to plan, design and manage the construction of maritime infrastructure including cargo, passenger, recreation and military facilities.
Building Resilience into Infrastructure and Communities
Man-made and climate-related hazards — cyberterrorism, severe weather events, extreme temperatures — pose significant threats to our built and natural environments. WSP helps organizations project and model the impacts of these threats, assess risks to operations and assets, identify and implement mitigation and adaptation strategies, and mainstream resilience into infrastructure planning and investment to protect communities, natural habitat, human health and the economy.
