Communities are at the heart of everything we do

By delivering societal and environmental benefits, our ambition is to shape places that are fit for the future.

Our designs and work contribute to equality in society, delivering social value by building better places and communities - improving the lives of those who live, work and play in them. Stantec works to enhance quality of life, resilience, liveability and safety.

Our UK Climate Change and Social Value Forum drives environmental and social action across the business, and tracks progress against our pledges.

We are committed to delivering benefits to our staff, and to wider communities through our programmes including our learning and development, work experience and apprenticeships, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I), Stantec in the Community, school’s engagement and STEM initiatives

Better Places for a Better Quality of Life

There is a huge opportunity to deliver much more value and benefit to the wellbeing of communities through the way we design and deliver new development. This report makes clear the importance and potential of taking an evidence-based approach to social value and using it to make better-informed decisions in spatial planning and land use. Read More

Places First

There is increasing recognition that the current planning process is delivering car dependent developments, lacking local facilities and not supporting active, healthy lifestyles. As our industry looks to accelerate delivery of housing and employment, Stantec is asking how can we deliver it in a way that does support the creation of healthy and sociable, prosperous, sustainable communities?
