WSP USA Joins Texas Central Partners to Provide Engineering Support
AUSTIN, TX Texas Central Partners announce that WSP USA is joining the Bullet Train team to provide engineering support as the project moves ahead in its pre-construction phase.
WSP has award-winning experience in designing infrastructure projects and the company's work will focus on engineering, cost estimating and scheduling. WSP USA, formerly known as WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, is a leading engineering and professional services consultancy whose history in Texas dates back more than a hundred years.
This announcement reflects the continued progress of the Texas Bullet Train and further demonstrates the attention the project has received from world-class firms with such scale and experience. WSP has already staffed dozens of full-time personnel on the project to assist Fluor and Lane, the companies who will perform pre-construction planning in which WSP will provide engineering services.
WSP has been a part of high-speed rail projects around the world and has been involved in significant infrastructure work in Dallas and Houston, Texas. Its history in Texas dates to 1886, when William Barclay Parsons served as chief engineer of the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railroad. He co-founded the firm that became Parsons Brinckerhoff, one of the largest American civil engineering firms.
The Texas Bullet Train continues to announce world-class participants as it brings the best talent on board, building toward the expected 10,000 direct jobs each year during construction in Texas.
