K-12 spaces must be inspiring and inviting, as well as designed and engineered to survive the daily wear and tear of thousands of children and adolescents over the course of decades – all within strict budget constraints.
With a long list of successful projects, we recognize that flexibility is crucial to design. Whether classrooms need to be able to change physical sizes and layouts or electrical systems need to allow for increased connectivity and digital support, we have the expertise and knowledge to address virtually any challenge no matter how large or small. Not just high performing and adaptable classrooms, we deliver solutions that take into account the whole system that includes administration offices, cafeterias, playgrounds, gymnasiums, labs and libraries – creating welcoming spaces where both children and the teachers and mentors who shape them can thrive.
As a truly coast-to-coast organization, we have close ties to the communities we work in – we work where we live. Motivated by this connection, our integrated teams are able draw on local and global expertise as we support K-12 schools and government bodies in creative design and renovation on a limited budgets, integrate technology in day-to-day learning, and address the needs of security and sustainability.
WSP has provided building engineering services to over 100 Canadian universities and colleges. From the time faculty and students set foot on campus, our designs have a profound effect on them. From the parking garage, the parks and landscapes, to specialized research laboratories and library facilities with natural lighting, to the student accommodation, lecture and dining halls – we deliver on all aspects of campus life.
Recognized by our peers for excellence, we have many award-winning designs encompassing lighting, structural engineering, and sustainability consulting. Projects like the University of British Columbia’s Library, the University of Waterloo’s Lazaridis Quantum Nano Centre and Churchill Northern Studies demonstrate our ability to deliver expertise across Canada.
