Canadian-headquartered consultancy WSP has consolidated its 700 staff from across the West Midlands into one Birmingham office in order to help service a growing pipeline of opportunities in the region. The new office at the Mailbox will serve as WSP’s Midlands hub following a £7m programme of refurbishments.
The aim is to bring engineers, technicians, scientists, surveyors, environmental consultants, designers and programme managers together in one location in order to deliver major projects like HS2’s Curzon Street Station.
Director at WSP Malcolm Davidson said: "This move is a key milestone for WSP, one that highlights our commitment to Birmingham and the Midlands. Over recent years, we have built a strong track record in successfully leading flagship projects in the city including Smart Motorways, the 212 Broad Street Tower, the Bullring and Grand Central, solidifying our position as a go-to engineering consultancy across a range of disciplines, delivered in a workspace that allows for us to attract the very best talent to be creative and innovate.
WSP employs 43,600 staff around the world, with 7,800 staff located within the UK.
