Featured sectors

Central government & defence

We work with government departments and agencies, and at European Commission level, to assist with policy analysis and formulation (including research), technical support and identification, and dissemination of best practice. The defence sector is under intense pressure to demonstrate value and demands the highest standards of security and information management. Wood has performed consistently well in this environment and has developed an enviable track record providing high quality technical and professional advice under a series of term commissions and framework agreements.


Wood understands the fundamental drivers affecting companies active in the energy sector, from traditional power and renewables, to oil and gas and nuclear installations. We offer a breadth and depth of expertise, combining comprehensive planning, environmental, engineering and sustainable development service capabilities.

Oil & gas

In all parts of the oil & gas industry proper management of safety, health and environmental risks is crucial - not just in terms of regulatory compliance, but because it also influences your company's profitability. Wood helps its customers do this at all stages of the production cycle, from E&P activity to refinery site to retail outlet.

Waste management

We understand what waste is and we are able to see it from the point of view of the waste producer, the waste contractor and the recycler. Our knowledge, combined with that of our customer, creates additional value from waste. Our experience of municipal, industrial and commercial waste has been built on upon delivering our knowledge to our customers in policy, regulation, contract design, risk management, compliance and the design and engineering of waste management systems and assets.


In meeting the diverse needs of the UK water industry, Wood has developed a strong track record of providing environmental and engineering support to the sector. This flexible support we offer continues to be throughout the supply chain to meet the diverse procurement strategies that have been developed. In addition we support central government and agencies with policy evaluation and implementation for this sector. This gives us a holistic understanding of the sector.
