Bringing together the right expertise

Our team is passionate about the relationship between our natural and built environments. We draw from over 20 technical specialties to form teams that are uniquely suited for your project, whether it’s a hospital, a road, a wind farm, or something else.

Combining local strength, knowledge, and relationships with world-class expertise, we go anywhere to meet your needs in creative and personalized ways. With a long-term commitment to the people and places we serve, our Environment team connects to projects on a personal level and collaborates with communities across the globe.

Our goal? To avoid resource impacts, expedite regulatory approvals, and cut project costs. We accomplish this by connecting you and our engineering and environment teams at the onset of a project and keeping everyone connected through exploration, planning, operations, and closure. 

Our engineers, surveyors, and environmental design service experts lay the groundwork for infrastructure, energy, and building projects, and our approach to development forms wildlife habitats, restores wetlands, and builds active communities. We can help you with nature based solutions, carbon capture, and other sustainability-focused goals.

We balance innovation and creativity with strong, grounded science and engineering practices. Across Stantec, our environmental science and engineering expertise is woven into all projects—no matter the size, location, or sector.

We go above and beyond to create sustainable projects

We’re biologists, geologists, archaeologists, hydrologists, engineers, geochemists, regulatory experts, risk assessors, and toxicologists. Our roles may differ from stakeholders and stewards, but we all value the land and resources we use. Our aim? To find creative solutions that address your community or project’s regulatory and environmental challenges. Through our partnerships, industry experience, and use of technology, we’re developing new and inventive ways to solve emerging issues, meet regulations, and increase productivity.

We bring together places that make communities feel like home

Transforming land into a residential or mixed-use community—or a public space with parks, trails, roadways, and transit—calls for technical skill, creative vision, and insight into development. We’ve merged this broad array of expertise to create a team of engineers, surveyors, and environmental service experts that can optimize the potential of your land and incubate active communities. By creating unique spaces that respond to the land and the people who use them, we can help you bring your community vision to life.

We help you manage your risk

We’ve seen the challenges that effect your business. Based on a deep understanding of markets, function, regulatory compliance, and best practices, we develop integrated designs to help you meet your business objectives, and we involve all stakeholders and disciplines to promote environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable solutions. Our teams help you manage risks to protect the wellbeing of employees and communities, reduce lost-time and insurance costs, and increase productivity.
