Welcome to Jacksonville

The River City has a massive footprint that Stantec has happily made our home. We’re building on redevelopment plans and creating environmental harmony for the nation’s largest urban park systems as well as the city’s booming industry and transportation networks. We have one goal in mind: to plan infrastructure today to meet the needs of tomorrow.

Our Jacksonville office, in the heart of it all, is blended by a team of versatility and diligence, as Chad Renshaw (office manager specializing in distribution, transmission, substation, and planning and control engineering) along with Kelly Smith (head of water), and James Hale (head of geographic information systems) lead strategic projects for the community. They’re fostering innovation for the City’s public and private sectors and supporting the southeastern United States’ largest utilities and municipality services. Using smart mobility and leveraging technology, we are creating better, safer, and smarter communities—helping people and goods travel safely and efficiently.  

We are actively committed to protecting our homes and the people and places that make them. Through resilient infrastructure and planning we are seeing positive environmental impacts and enhanced safety and capacity in the communities we serve.
