WSP ranks best Service Engineer in World Architecture 100

WSP has been ranked best service engineer and joint-second for structural engineering by the top 100 global architects.

 

The rankings come in an annual supplement, World Architecture 100, produced by British-based Building Design magazine.

The WA100 list is the annual survey of the world’s largest architecture practices, which also includes architects’ verdicts on their favourite professional partners: building contractors, cost consultants, project managers, service engineers and structural engineers.

“WSP has engineered some of the most technically challenging and iconic buildings around the world. Our objective is to enable architects to realise their aesthetic vision, and we are delighted to have been recognized by the world’s largest architecture firms,” says Philippe Honnorat, Head of WSP UK Building Services.

Salesforce Tower, San Francisco

From the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco to Greenland Centre in Sydney, our engineers design building services with sustainability in mind, and winning in this category is a much-appreciated recognition.

Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris

The Fondation Louis Vuitton’s new location in Paris, designed by Frank Gehry, perfectly illustrates how WSP can facilitate some of the most ambitious and complicated architecture. The unique architectural form of this distinctive contemporary art gallery called for innovative technical solutions to meet challenges such as ensuring tightly controlled temperature and humidity while concealing all M&E devices so as not to detract from the art and the architecture. Like the majority of WSP projects, Foundation Louis Vuitton was designed for minimal environmental impact.

111 West 57th Street, New York

We are also proud of our world-renowned structural engineers who were ranked second by leading architects. Projects on which they worked include the recently-opened One World Trade Center in New York as well as London’s new symbol – The Shard. They continue to redefine New York’s skyline with high-rises such as 111 West 57th Street, the world’s most slender skyscraper and 432 Park Avenue, one of the tallest residential towers in the world.

Phoenix Towers, Wuhan, China

“We have many exciting projects around the world where we’re helping the most innovative concepts come to life. Some of the most fascinating examples include Phoenix Towers in Wuhan, China and 56 Leonard Street in New York,” adds Tom Smith, Global Director of Property and Buildings.

The report also features the 10 most admired architecture firms according to their fellow architects. Interestingly, WSP has worked with almost all of the top architects including Foster & Partners (ranking most-admired), Herzog & de Meuron, Gensler, Renzo Piano Workshop, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Rafael Vinoly Architects and SHoP Architects.
