A virtual network of thought leaders, Stantec’s Urban Places produces innovative yet achievable plans that build communities of lasting value for everyone. We help clients capitalize on the economic, social, and environmental benefits of accessible, mixed-use downtowns and walkable neighborhoods. Our urban designers, engineers, planners, landscape architects, and economists know how their own active involvement improves their communities. That translates directly to their work and a commitment to improving your community.
Stantec formed Urban Places around a nucleus of internationally known planners and designers. We help our clients tackle the most complex urban issues, and one key to our success lies in an unconventional structure.
