WSP says it is strengthening its position as a leading provider of services across the full mining asset life cycle with the addition of Calibre Professional Services and its 800 professionals in Australia.
The company’s mining team now represents over 5,200 professionals globally, including 1,400 experts in Australia, and benefits from an enhanced ability to support blue-chip mining clients in Western Australia, WSP says.
“We are eager to leverage the full potential of our combined teams and work together to support mining clients with strong ESG commitments,” Alexandre L’Heureux, President and CEO of WSP, said. “We have the opportunity to play a pivotal role at a time when mining companies are making bold commitments towards decarbonising their operations and infrastructure, while providing the critical minerals required for the green transition.”
Guy Templeton, WSP’s President and CEO, Asia Pacific, said: “With the acquisition of Calibre, we are significantly growing our presence in Western Australia, and in the mining sector, while further building on our Earth and Environment capabilities. We also look forward to creating significant value for our clients in the Pilbara Region and across the country.”
Adrian Chapman, Executive General Manager at Calibre, said: “Over the past two decades, we have focused on building Calibre as a consultant of choice for major mining projects. Joining WSP enables our talent to leverage the scale, capabilities, and expertise of a global company with 67,000 professionals.”
