Cleo Forster
Candidate Engineer, Civil & Structural

I started my career with WSP in Green Building as a Sustainability Consultant, and then moved into our Civil engineering team. WSP has been so good to me from day one, so the whole time has been awesome! I have been very fortunate in that I have been the lead consultant on two big commercial Green Star projects, one of which is the first green building in Namibia. I am currently working with a highly qualified and experienced team on Future Cities in Africa – an exciting idea that I believe is vital to keeping WSP at the forefront of our industry. Without question, the people at WSP are what makes our company tick, keeps our standard of delivery high and gets me out of bed in the morning.

Hilary Konigkramer
Senior Associate, Environment & Energy

Since joining WSP’s Environment & Energy team in Durban, I have worked on a number of exciting projects. Obtaining approval for the remediation of facilities at the Guernica Chemicals site was a particularly interesting project, as the site had attracted a fair amount of media interest for a number of years. The project was different to the usual EIA as it didn’t fit neatly into a legal framework, so I was able to learn a lot. My most recent highlights have been working on green energy projects for Sappi and getting involvement in the early phases of the high-profile Transnet Durban Dig-Out Port. I enjoy working at WSP – we have a great office environment and interesting projects, where each day is different.

Karly Spronk,
Sustainability Consultant and Internal Project Manager, Green Building

From early on we were gifted with a lot of responsibility within Green by Design. The confidence the team has had in me has been a great driver in some of the success I’ve experienced. I have had the great privilege of working with great project teams, particularly the 102 Rivonia project developed by Eris for EY. This was an extremely fast-track project and way the team dealt with items and problems has had a huge positive impact on me and how I approach obstacles. We have an incredible team and not a day goes past that I don’t learn something from someone.

Vere Shaba,
Sustainability Consultant, Green Building

I began my career with WSP as a mechanical engineering intern in Building Services in Cape Town and joined the company’s Green by Design team in Johannesburg permanently in 2013. I am passionate about the development of the African continent, and WSP has allowed me to gain extensive exposure in this area. My career highlights have included presenting the concepts of sustainable development in Malawi, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. One of my favourite projects was the sustainability review of a public transport terminal in Tembisa and working on the Newtown Junction Green Star SA projects in the Johannesburg CBD. It is great to be part of WSP’s award winning green building team!
