SmartCentres builds 3 million square feet of retail space annually across Canada. With 47 million ft2 built, SmartCentres is the largest supplier of new store space in Canada and continues to be the most active developer in the country.
Stantec’s partnership with SmartCentres has resulted in ongoing mandates for environmental and geotechnical services over several years. Our lasting relationship with SmartCentres demonstrates Stantec’s commitment and leadership in environmental sciences.
Over 150 phase I, II, and rehabilitation environmental studies were done to date, as well as geotechnical investigations and materials testing during the development phases of the client’s retail centers. Environmental services include boreholes or trenches, monitoring wells, soil and groundwater sampling and analysis, and environmental remediation, including excavation and transportation of contaminated soil.
Stantec supports the needs of SmartCentres at all stages of the lifecycle: from property acquisition to development and disposition. We acted as the client’s representative on site for materials testing during all phases of construction, with either full-time services or spot checks.
