WSP has expanded its geotechnical capabilities in Canada through the acquisition of SPL, a multi-disciplinary consultancy based in Ontario.
SPL delivers engineering solutions for geotechnical, environmental, hydrogeological, materials testing and inspection, concrete, pavement technology, building science and natural science to support development.
The firm provides its services to government and municipal organisations, as well as industries in Canada’s private and public sectors.
The acquisition adds 250 employees to WSP’s workforce.
“We are pleased with this acquisition, which, as per our growth strategy, will allow us to increase our environmental presence in Ontario and to expand the array of services we offer our clients, particularly as it relates to geotechnical services,” said David Ackert, president and CEO of WSP in Canada.
“Our complementary end-markets should also translate into revenue synergy opportunities, mainly for infrastructure and property-related projects.”
