Mergers and consolidations continue in the A/E/C industry. The four legacy firms that make up the US division of engineering firm WSP—WSP Flack + Kurtz, WSP Cantor Seinuk, WSP Environmental & Energy, and WSP SELLS—are consolidating under the WSP name.

David Cooper, president of the WSP U.S. region, will continue to lead the consolidated firm. Globally, WSP has more than 15,000 employees with more than 300 offices in 35 countries, and ranks as the 17th largest engineering firm in the world.

“What will change for us is the level of service we can offer,” Cooper said. “We have a very strong culture across the legacy firms. The consolidation lets us face the market like a small regional but with added depth and breath of resources and expertise.” In the U.S., WSP has a staff of more than 1000 in 35 offices across the country.
