Jonathan Cutting joins Stantec as technical director in water business

Cutting will support Stantec’s clients in rising to their urban drainage and overflow challenges


Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering, has appointed Jonathan Cutting as technical director in the water business.

In his new role, Cutting will use his extensive knowledge of sewer networks and urban drainage to add further depth and expertise to Stantec’s technical leadership.

Cutting joins the firm from WSP where he held the position of technical director for Urban Drainage. His experience and portfolio will support Stantec’s water business, and directly contribute to the management of clients’ wastewater networks across the UK and Ireland—especially in association with significant programmes of work to reduce the occurrence of storm overflow spills.

Cutting brings a wealth of experience to Stantec. During the past 20 years, he has worked with almost every UK water company on their urban drainage challenges. This involved leading frameworks, delivering modelling programmes, and developing drainage and wastewater-management plans. He has also helped develop best practices in this field internationally in both Canada and Australia.

“To meet their short-term and long-term storm overflow challenges, water companies need robust, sustainable, and cost-effective solutions”, Cutting said. “I’m excited to join Stantec and work in such a strategic, interdisciplinary space. There is a huge amount of opportunity for change and innovation in the industry, whether that’s through nature-based solutions, more advanced surface water removal technology, or through better urban planning.”

“I’ll be working closely with our planning and delivery teams to support them in delivering resilient and sustainable communities. I’m fortunate to be joining a business that already recognises the key challenges and solutions, while also being full of like-minded professionals who are all looking to do the right thing.”

Elliot Gill, senior technical director at Stantec, added: “We’re delighted to bring Jonathan into our team so he can help us build on our industry-leading work supporting water companies and stakeholders in the years ahead. Making sure we have the best talent has never been more crucial. This is why we’re continually growing our team at every level while supporting existing colleagues with unique learning and development opportunities.”
