Success Story - TSP Projects

TSP Projects is an award winning multi-disciplinary solutions business with extensive engineering capabilities and specialist expertise in the transportation and energy industries. Employing more than 420 highly experienced staff, it works in partnership with its clients to develop and deliver high quality, innovative technical solutions.

TSP Projects provides multi-discipline engineering solutions including consultancy, design and project management and is responsible for designing and constructing many major infrastructure projects within the U.K. With over 420 technical experts across five U.K. offices, specialties include rail, energy, aviation, security and construction. Building on recent success, TSP Projects has begun a trans-Atlantic expansion with the opening of a new Canadian office in Toronto as a satellite to its York HQ. With plans to help modernize and expand the country’s public transit infrastructure gathering pace, TSP Projects’ expert team intends to use its knowledge of the rail industry to capitalize on the strong growth of the Canadian urban rail sector.

Toronto Global was introduced to TSP Projects through the Canadian High Commission to provide the company with advice on how best to achieve its Canadian dream. Toronto Global’s advisors assisted in establishing TSP Projects’ Canadian subsidiary in the region through a tailored program that included site visits, connecting the company with local experts in incorporation, and providing advice and guidance on how to navigate the Canadian market.

TSP Projects chose to locate in the Toronto Region based on the substantial investments in Ontario by the provincial government on a variety of rail initiatives, providing the company with an ideal base for expansion into the Canadian market. Principal Design Manager John Wood and Rail Director Keith Moverley have officially opened the new office, and discussions with clients and partners in the Canadian rail market are underway. The plan is to gradually develop the office through local recruitment and partnering with other local consultancies.

“We are very excited to be extending our reach into the Canadian market. We are experts in heavy rail systems design in the U.K. and our aim is to support clients and partners in delivering the substantial rail investment being made by the provincial government in Ontario.”

“Potential clients in Canada have been impressed by our experience in delivering large, complex infrastructure projects, such as the redevelopment of King’s Cross and Reading Stations and our development work on the Transpeninne Route Upgrade project and are keen to talk to us about our plans for trans-Atlantic expansion.
We have set up a Toronto office with a small team of U.K. design and engineering specialists, and we intend to develop the business with the assistance of the experts at Toronto Global, whose guidance has been invaluable.”
