Fifty years ago a man set out with a vision. He saw the world in metes and bounds and used his insights into the physical layout of our earth to single handedly start what has grown into a full service multi-disciplined design firm. That man, Wilfred P. Large, stuck with his vision and, through diligent hard work and character, kept his dream alive through the toughest of times. His creed of ambition, quality and success resonates throughout the 25+ employees here at WPL today. It can be seen in the planning, layouts and designs of municipal and institutional projects, local corridor and roadway projects, the accuracy of topographic surveys, and all the way to the detail given to a residential mortgage survey. At WPL we stand behind our work, just like Wilfred P. Large stood behind his dream.
We believe every site is unique thus we tailor our approach accordingly.
We go the extra mile, not many do.
– Wilfred P. Large
