Stantec opens its new Cumbrian office

The global design and engineering firm has opened the doors to its workspace in Cleator Moor


As part of its ambitious UK and Ireland growth strategy, Stantec, a global leader in sustainable engineering and design, has opened a new office space in the Cumberland town of Cleator Moor.

Stantec employs more than 27,000 people, with over 3,000 of them based in the UK. The firm plans, designs and delivers iconic and transformative infrastructure projects around the world which support sustainable, equitable communities.

From water, energy, and environmental services, to planning, transport and community development, Stantec’s specialist teams work across a variety of design and engineering disciplines.

The move into its new office on Earl Street reflects Stantec’s longstanding commitment to the Cumbrian region and the people who live and work there. The company has helped improve connections for remote pumping stations for United Utilities, worked with NuGen on planning and permitting activity, and supported Low Level Waste Repository with programme management. Stantec has also worked closely with Sellafield, ensuring the multi-function nuclear site was able to prioritise investments across its portfolio.

Stantec will have a new home in the same office as REACT Engineering in Phoenix Court. The two companies already work together, combining the global experience of Stantec with the specialist capability of REACT as a prominent enterprise in the local area. This new shared space will enable further collaboration, helping the firms support each other on local and national business opportunities.

Stantec’s Framework Manager, Neil Crellin, commented: “Our new office space in Cleator Moor will allow us to lay down roots and firmly establish our presence in the region while deepening ties with local clients and partners.

“My family has long been a part of Cumbria’s past, it’s good to think that I can be part of its bright future. I’m very much looking forward to building on our commitments to communities in and around Cumbria, but also enjoying the incredible countryside in this beautiful corner of the world.”

Phil Redfern, Managing Director of REACT Engineering added: “We’ve been collaborating with Stantec for several years and it’s fantastic to see such a prestigious global organisation establish a local presence in the town of Cleator Moor. I’m excited about what the future holds in terms of supporting each other on new business opportunities and I am looking forward to further strengthening our working relationship.”
