Company Overview

With every community, we redefine what's possible.

Stantec is a global leader in sustainable engineering, architecture, and environmental consulting. The diverse perspectives of our partners and interested parties drive us to think beyond what’s previously been done on critical issues like climate change, digital transformation, and future-proofing our cities and infrastructure. We innovate at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships to advance communities everywhere, so that together we can redefine what’s possible.

We’ve been serving our clients and communities in Aotearoa New Zealand for over 125 years. Starting in Ōtepoti Dunedin in 1898, Stantec’s presence in Aotearoa began with Edward Roberts, an engineer involved in everything from ship repairs to gold dredging design to the building of the Wingatui Viaduct. Today, Stantec’s office in Dunedin is one of many. With a team of more than 800 people working in the main cities and across regional offices throughout the motu (country), our engineers, designers, scientists, and project managers help our communities thrive.

We connect to projects on a personal level and advance the quality of life across the globe

We recognise the importance of the distinct experiences and perspectives our people bring to the workplace.
In more than a century of operations in Aotearoa New Zealand, we’ve worked with public and private sector clients on a diverse range of high-profile projects.
With offices across New Zealand, we’re ready to work with you.


Stantec communities include everyone with an interest in the work that we do—from our Stantec project teams and industry colleagues to our clients and the people our work impacts. We work collaboratively to understand their unique needs. We respond proactively to address project challenges. And we advise constructively to help build towards their goals. Although we help to create physical communities, our ultimate goal is to create something far more meaningful—a sense of community.


The diverse perspectives powering today’s communities motivate us to reimagine the way people interact with the world. From creating designs that balance form with function to applying new technologies to solve real-world problems, we strive for outcomes that transcend the challenges they solve while adapting to a community’s specific needs and opportunities. That way our approach is customised and considered. And our results empower people and communities to thrive together.
