Value-focused solutions for the public sector

Wood has supported local, regional, national and multi-country government agencies worldwide for more than 70 years. We bring diverse resources to plan, execute and manage all phases of complex projects and programmes.

Our specialised expertise, global resources and innovative technologies respond to customers’ current and changing needs. We understand the needs and dynamics of public sector customers and offer a strong emphasis on value, delivering safe, high-quality projects on time and on budget.

Our support to the government sector has evolved in direct relationship to the needs of a diverse range of customers. We leverage our global resources to provide expertise and technology where they are needed, utilising our extensive knowledge of host nation and international legislation, customs and resources. Our project managers and senior practice leaders are well versed in maximising value in the public sector, applying cutting-edge technologies and industry best practices from our vast global experience. Similarly, we integrate sustainability and resiliency concepts into every project to provide lasting solutions that meet long-term government and public needs.

From rapid response to a natural disaster to policy consultancy, construction oversight, or management of large-scale programmes, we deliver mission-critical solutions – whatever they are, wherever they’re needed.

Our services include multidisciplinary engineering, environmental and project management services, drawing on expertise in policy development, master planning, water management, environmental analysis and permitting, engineering and design, and construction, through to asset maintenance and operation.

Frameworks and term contracts

We understand public sector procurement. We have decades of experience as an active member of government framework and term contracts operating across Europe and North America, including the current UK Crown Commercial Services Project Management & Full Design Team Services framework, and long-standing roles supporting the European Commission.

International development

With a day-to-day presence on five continents and successful past programmes in nearly every developing country in the world, we provide multidisciplinary consulting, design and construction services that support the political, social and economic advancement of developing, post-conflict and post-disaster nations, working for customers including USAID, World Bank and the UK's Department for International Development.

Civilian and government agencies

Our services for government agencies result in cleaner air, cleaner water, sustainable transportation, environmental restoration and energy efficiency. We have long-standing relationships with a vast array of civilian federal and national government agencies around the globe. In the US, this includes the Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, and Federal Highway Administration. In Canada we are a long-standing partner of Public Works and Government Services Canada, and Canada Nuclear Laboratories. In the UK, our relationships span agencies such as the Environment Agency, Defra and the HCA. Our experience also spans government agencies in the Middle East and Latin America.

Local government

As important as our projects for national and international governments and agencies, we combine our global skills and experience with local knowledge to deliver programmes and projects for customers across local, state and regional government bodies across the world. From land divestment and due diligence support, to waste strategy planning, maintenance frameworks and flood risk assessment, we partner with local government customers to deliver enhanced services and tax-payer value.

Focus on safety and sustainability

Safety comes first in everything we do, and you can rely on our performance exceeding industry standards and meeting the high standards set by government agencies. Our quality programmes are compliant with ISO, ANSI (US) and other host-country standards. As part of our focus on sustainability, we also have an outstanding reputation for teaming with local businesses and providing opportunities for small businesses, directly benefiting the communities where projects are located.
