WYG is a global programme, project management and technical consultancy with a difference.

Our in-house team brings together 1,400 specialists from a diverse set of disciplines. Our connections expand even further as we bring together a network of over 20,000 partners and associates from around the world.

We are designers, project managers, engineers, planners, environmental specialists and business service professionals. Together we form the teams our clients need to make their project ambitions come to life.

Covering global ground

We follow our clients wherever their ambition takes them, often operating in challenging geographies and circumstances. 

The work, making complex simple

We work from the earliest project stages, offering all the expertise needed to make challenging concepts possible and then to make them happen.

From a 50-year regeneration scheme in Liverpool to the transport system for a major new town in the Saudi Arabian desert, we make things possible.

From engineering support on military bases in Afghanistan to helping South Africans out of the poverty trap, we make things happen.

Alongside our urban development and project management expertise, our ability to make a difference in some of the world’s most difficult environments sets us apart.

A global business serving local clients

From strategic asset creation and international development, planning, energy and engineering to social and economic development, our bespoke teams deliver large and complex assignments, as well as individual specialist services.

Clear vision, strong values

Our vision: To inspire our clients and our people to create positive change through our imagination and expertise.

By encouraging our people and our partners to share ideas, work effectively together and look at challenges differently, we create great outcomes for our clients.

Ours is a culture built on high ethical standards. We always aim for the most sustainable results from our work and are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. How we achieve this is down to our talented people who deliver results for our clients by living our values and harnessing our core competencies.

Our values are the things we believe in that underpin the way we do things. We are:

Confident: We are good at what we do but we take nothing for granted. Every job presents a new opportunity to showcase our ability, win the confidence of clients and make people notice us.

Authentic: We embrace the fact we do what we say and say what we do. We live by the solutions we identify and the advice we give. We always look to lead by example.

Imaginative: Free thinking lies at the heart of our approach. We are committed to turning our clients' desired outcomes into reality.

Resourceful: People are our greatest asset and we look for talent and creativity. We strive to be the best, not the biggest.

Healthy, safe and secure

We are committed to selecting the best-equipped people for each assignment. We keep them healthy, safe and secure no matter where the work takes them. We call this our duty of care which enables us to work in the most challenging of environments.

We’re trusted by some of the world’s largest commissioning bodies, from major UK government departments to international funding agencies.

Our work has seen us:

  • Rebuilding the Western Balkans
  • Improving Libya’s procurement capabilities
  • Developing communities from Swindon to South Africa
  • Developing transport infrastructure in Bulgaria

A focus for growth

We’re committed to spark the imaginations of our clients, our people and our partners with the possibilities of what we can achieve together. Our growth prospects are driven by a portfolio of innovative services.

Our story is entering an exciting phase, as we continue to grow and excel globally. The future looks bright. It is being part of this mounting success that fuels our creative spirit and consistently high performance – why else would over 80% of our business be repeat business?

From independent engineer to fast growing international consultancy

We’re immensely proud of our journey to this point. From our origins as an independent engineering consultancy, we’ve embraced rapid expansion, evolution and change.

Originally formed as White Young Green in 1997 by the merger of two long-standing engineering consultancies, organic growth and acquisitions developed our position as a quality international management and technical consultancy.

Rebranded as WYG in 2008, we bring our international track record, experience and long-lasting relationships to bear when delivering projects successfully around the world.

Changing it up

We’re deliberately reshaping the future of our industry and changing the way consultancy works, with particular focus on:

  • Fragile and conflict affected states– working in countries ravaged by poverty and war
  • Urban development creating cities and towns of the future
  • Climate resilience and infrastructure – safeguarding for generations to come in communities hit by climate change

Constantly improving standards and upholding best practice is important to us. It is for this reason that we hold corporate membership to a comprehensive list of professional bodies and associations including:

We are committed to good management of standards throughout our activities. Where deemed necessary by the Board, our overall sense of direction and the principles of action are set out in a specific policy document which clearly states our overall objectives and commitment to improving performance.

The policy documents demonstrate our formal commitment and particularly that of directors towards good management.

The requirement for a policy can be based on legislation, management system standards or specifications, or other applicable requirements.

Established Group Policy Statements are revisited annually to ensure that they remain appropriate and continue to meet the Group requirements.
