David Stephens, WSP Head of Local Government said: "After 14 great years with Halcrow and CH2M the next move was always going to be a big decision. Combined with the opportunity to develop a business focused on supporting our local government clients; it was WSP's forward-looking culture that got me really excited."

Adrian Malone, Head of Digital Project Delivery and BIM, said: "BIM and digital are all about the way we collaborate by using digital technology to create opportunity and to design a better future.

"WSP has a strong culture of collaboration and future ready thinking. Connecting these with BIM and digital creates a powerful platform to tackle the complex challenges facing our infrastructure clients."
