  True sustainable design comes from understanding and respecting the needs and values of stakeholders. Context is paramount.

Eric Dunford

Sustainability Analyst

Toronto , Ontario

As a sustainability consultant, Eric works closely with a broad range of Stantec colleagues to come up with the best available strategies for project challenges—things that can’t be resolved with standard practices. “To thrive in a sustainability-related career, you have to be flexible and must keep an open mind,” says Eric.

Sustainability is about continual innovation and improvement. One of Eric’s most exciting recent projects was the Grand Bend Wastewater Treatment Facility. The client and the team were very open to trying new approaches and tools—an openness that resulted in a more effective design with fewer negative environmental impacts. The Grand Bend Wastewater Treatment Facility was the first project in Canada to receive an Envision award for sustainable infrastructure design.

Eric figures that his passion for his career stems from growing up in a small Ontario town surrounded by lakes. There, he learned to appreciate the natural world, an appreciation that he strives to reflect in his work.
