Who we are

Founded in 1970, RPS is now part of Tetra Tech, a leading provider of consulting and engineering services worldwide. Our experts define, design and manage projects that create shared value to a complex, urbanising and resource-scarce world.

This is our Purpose.

Our promise

We have deep expertise in things that matter and we are easy to work with. Our clients trust us and we are respected for our creative thinking. Together we build strong relationships by repeatedly delivering on our promise.

Making complex easy

RPS, a Tetra Tech company

With 28,000 associates in 550 offices in more than 100 countries on 7 continents, Tetra Tech has the resources of a multi-billion-dollar company and can move at the speed of a 20-person office.

We solve problems that matter across six sectors

In an increasingly complex world we navigate the nuances of a volatile, ambiguous and complex landscape with global perspective.

Our services

We work across twelve service clusters: project and program management, design and development, water services, environment, advisory and management consulting, exploration and development, planning and approvals, health, safety and risk, oceans and coastal, laboratories, training and communications, creative and digital services. These services are augmented by the wider global capabilities and expertise of the Tetra Tech business.

We stand out for our clients by using deep expertise to solve problems that matter, making them easy to understand and by being easy to work with.

Leading the way

RPS was founded in 1970 by a passionate team of academics in Oxfordshire. They shared a dream of creating an environmental planning practice dedicated to making the world a better place.

RPS played a leading role in raising awareness on the importance of balance to protect the environment itself and the welfare of the people living in it.

The future

Since then, we’ve grown organically and through planned acquisitions into a global business. In 2023 we joined Tetra Tech, adding our expertise to their global consulting and engineering services.

Our founders’ principles remain at our core and today, tomorrow and together our people continue to find unexpected answers to shape our environmental, social and economic landscapes.


We strive to solve problems in pragmatic ways. We're passionate about delivering results. We ask questions. We define problems. We make complex easy.

RPS is a great place to do great work. No day is the same and our people are integrally involved in defining our culture, behaviours and success. Working together, we challenge each other and seize opportunities to learn and grow, both professionally and personally. You can too.
