WSP Flack + Kurtz is the new name of the engineering firm formerly known as Flack + Kurtz Inc. “WSP fully complements our core belief in designing for a sustainable future”, said David Cooper, president and CEO of WSP Flack + Kurtz. “While we only recently changed our name, Flack + Kurtz joined WSP in 2000 ... all 19 Flack + Kurtz partners agreed that this was a great opportunity for the potential synergies, but more importantly, we shared the vision as to what makes a great consulting firm” Cooper said.

WSP has more than 10,000 employees in 250 offices in 35 countries, with more than 1,100 employees in the United States. WSP offers a full range of engineering services addressing property, transportation, infrastructure, and environment. Although comprehensive engineering service providers are common internationally, the U.S. business model for engineering services remains complacent as engineers and architects continue to deploy their services in the Middle East, Russia, and other areas of the world. The WSP Flack + Kurtz merger hopes to create a multidisciplinary firm that offers comprehensive engineering services to its U.S. clients either individually or under the umbrella of single-source contracting.
