Our rich history dates back to colonial New Zealand, when the Public Works Department was opening up the country’s notoriously difficult terrain through the combination of national road and rail networks.

Now we’re known as WSP Opus, which combines our unrivalled New Zealand heritage with the power of global thinking.
