Earlier this summer, WSP, a global engineering and professional services consultancy, acquired Willoughby Engineering, a Chicago-based 10-person mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) and building performance firm.
Tom Willoughby, who founded the firm in 2013, joins WSP as a senior vice president in Chicago. He will work closely with Brett Kelley, who leads the local buildings practice.
“The office is now a 55-person strong integrated buildings practice with outstanding expertise across multiple market sectors, including high-rise commercial and residential, healthcare, science and technology, and higher education,” said David Cooper, president of WSP USA’s buildings practice.
The addition of Willoughby’s engineers in Dallas also enables WSP to expand its market reach in that region, providing local expertise in the commercial sector to supplement the office’s expertise in healthcare engineering.
