Stadiums and fields—where memories are made

Stadiums are the beating hearts of our communities, bringing excitement, unity, community spirit, and purpose. They are where memories are made, bringing people together to play and experience sport. Whether it’s the high school footy field or an impressive cricket pitch, from recreational play through to professional sporting leagues, we plan and design all facets of stadium and field projects at every scale. Breathing life into every community, at every level of competition. 

From community sport and recreation to professional sports, games can transform boundaries, unify nations, build community spirit, improve healthy wellbeing, and enrich lives. The buildings in which we watch, play, and practice should intensify this experience—igniting passion, expanding opportunity, and growing character. In any sport, teamwork is imperative. 

At Stantec, this is the same. We form teams of engineers who collaborate with clients and contractors to deliver leading facilities fit for indoor sports, sport centres, and more.
