WSP grows pre-tax profits


COMMERCIAL work is at a six year high at consultant WSP, which is still looking for acquisitions.

In the first half of this year WSP raised pre-tax profits £3 million to £11.8 million as turnover hit £201 million, up from £169.3 million.

Chief executive Chris Cole said: 'There will be a continual stream of acquisitions and we have also entered the energy market and expect that to deliver in the next year or so.

'In the commercial market, we are busier than we have been for six years.'
