Stantec announces new Waterloo Region office

Kitchener, ON, February 3, 2015 – Stantec will soon have a new home in Waterloo Region. The global design firm is moving to the innoTECH building in the David Johnston Research + Technology Park in Waterloo.

“We’ve been looking for a new, larger home to help facilitate our growth in the community,” says Kevin Fergin, office leader for Stantec’s Kitchener office. “The innoTech building is a perfect fit. Not only will it provide space for our growing team, but the building itself is LEED Gold certified. Those sustainable features are in lock step with our values as a company.”

Stantec’s more than 330 team members in the region currently work from the company’s downtown Kitchener office on Frederick Street. The Waterloo Region team will move to Stantec’s new home in the Fall of 2015.

“With a global reputation for academic excellence and innovative partnerships with global industry leaders, the University of Waterloo attracts the world’s best, brightest and most motivated students,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor of Waterloo. “Having a global leader such as Stantec located on our north campus will help to advance our experiential education objectives for students by allowing them to link their academic success with future career goals.”

“The proximity of our new office to the talent pool of architects, engineers, environmental scientists and planners from the UW will be critical for our growing business,” says Fergin. “It ensures our access to the ‘best and brightest’ emerging talent in our industry.”

“We are very happy to welcome Stantec to our growing portfolio of leading edge buildings in the David Johnston Research & Technology Park,” says Adrian Conrad, director at The Cora Group Inc. “This continues the momentum as we lead in the development of first class, modern and sustainable office space.”

Stantec is an active part of Waterloo Region and its team members are playing key roles in many projects in the community. Key Stantec projects in the region include:
