WHAT WE DO STARTS WITH WHAT WE KNOW
2020 marks the 150th anniversary of WSP in Aotearoa New Zealand. From the earliest roads and railways that connected communities, to the power stations that created energy for the nation, the airports that have connected Aotearoa to the rest of the world and enabled regional growth, and the buildings that facilitate democracy, health and learning, we’ve been there.
First as the Public Works Department, evolving into Ministry of Works, Works Consultancy Services, Opus, WSP Opus, and now WSP. The history of WSP is the history of the built environment in Aotearoa.
150 years on we’re proud to have the blueprint of Aotearoa in our DNA and to be involved in the projects that will continue to connect and support us for generations to come.
