Stantec Tower Sustainability Features

Sustainability: Built into the foundation of Stantec's new headquarters

At 66 stories in the heart of downtown Edmonton, Stantec Tower is the tallest building in Canada west of Toronto and the most prominent feature of Edmonton’s new and evolving ICE District, Canada’s largest sports and entertainment hub. Stantec Tower is our new headquarters, designed by us to showcase the sustainability best practices that we regularly provide to clients.

A Green Building
We envisioned Stantec Tower as a green building:

  • The building’s core and shell are targeting LEED Gold 2009; the office space occupied by Stantec is targeting LEED Silver v4 and Fitwel 2-star certification.
  • The efficient design minimizes energy use, and Stantec’s landlord has committed to purchasing renewable energy, offsetting at least 35% of the building’s electricity for the first two years of operation.
  • Sustainability is built into our interiors through flexible workspaces that can grow, change, and adapt with Stantec over time.
  • Fixtures reduce water used by 35%, and cisterns capture rainwater runoff from the roof to provide 100% of the Tower’s irrigation needs.
  • While constructing Stantec’s tenant space, we diverted 75% of the construction and demolition material from the landfill.

Sustainable Commuting
Many of Edmonton’s Stantec employees are taking advantage of sustainable commuting options:

  • Edmonton Transit Service’s ETS@Work Program saves Stantec Tower employees 24% on transit passes. Payments are deducted from their paycheck, and passes are delivered to them at work.
  • Stantec assists employees who want a shared parking stall to connect with each other to make arrangements.
  • For cyclists, Stantec Tower offers nearly 200 bike racks and full shower and locker facilities.

Once employees are at work, they can take part in our car-share program, which gives access to a small fleet of energy-efficient cars to be used for short-distance business trips like client and site visits. Bicycles and safety gear are also available to give employees another option for errands and offsite meetings.

Stantec Tower also has walkable access to desirable services: transit, dining, entertainment, public services, child care, and more.

Sustainable, Spirit, Mind, and Body
Stantec Tower promotes cultural and spiritual inclusion for Stantec employees and visitors by providing a multi-faith prayer room with an adjoining wudu (ritual purification) area and gathering spaces for secular celebrations and meditation.

The building has been designed to help employees and visitors lead healthier, more active lives. To ease stress and promote the health and well-being of our employees, the Tower offers collaboration spaces, daycare, a nursing mother’s room, gender-neutral washrooms, quiet areas for individual work, outside views and natural light, internal staircases, sit-to-stand desks, access to fitness facilities, and rooftop gardens that connect people to nature.

Stantec's Commitment to Sustainability
The care and thought devoted to making Stantec Tower as sustainable as possible reflects the Company’s commitment to lead by example. Stantec’s Edmonton employees now work in a building with sustainability built right into its foundation.
