Stantec consulting firm in St. John’s is moving its 120 employees to new offices today at 141 Kelsey Dr.
A news release notes the new, 30,000-square foot office will officially open its doors on Monday.
The Kelsey Drive location takes the place of three previous Stantec offices located on Water Street, Torbay Road and in the Beothuk building.
“This new, expanded location is a testament to our commitment to the St. John’s community and to our growth in Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Hal Lewis, Stantec’s regional leader for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
“Our new home will also help accommodate our continued expansion in the region.”
Stantec came to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2009 when it acquired Jacques Whitford Limited.
“We’re excited to have the majority of our St. John’s team members under one roof,” says Robert MacLeod, office leader for the new location.
“Although the Architectural group will continue to operate from our Airport Road location, this consolidation on Kelsey Drive will provide an opportunity for greater collaboration amongst staff from Stantec’s various disciplines. This will enable us to be more responsive to our clients’ needs in the community.”
Stantec is currently involved in all major projects in the province, including the Muskrat Falls Lower Churchill Project, Long Harbour Project, Hebron Project and the St. John’s Convention Centre Expansion.
Stantec employs almost 1,000 staff across 11 offices in Atlantic Canada, with approximately 200 staff located in St. John’s.
