Easy, open, egalitarian

Transparency and visibility are integral to the design, so even before you are through security, you can see your plane and how to get to it. The airport experience doesn’t get much easier than that. View project

The first LEED Gold Certified airport terminal in Canada

The expansion builds on a project completed by Stantec 8 years ago. One of its most memorable features is the living wall, the first in any airport in North America. A full two stories high, it’s hard to miss, and serves as a symbol of the airport’s commitment to sustainable design. View project

A home to be proud of

When you’re embarrassed to have visitors in your home, it might be time to clean up. When your home is the national airport, and visitors are your number one source of income, it’s time for a redesign. View project
