Council and the local community.

efficient transportation networks are key to the prosperity of the communities
we live in, which is why this opportunity to again work side by side with the
Council, is really exciting for Stantec.”
Council’s Service Delivery Group
Manager Jules Witt said it was satisfying to have both contracts awarded, one
nearly at the same price as our estimates and the other significantly under.
“Council has had a good working
relationship with both these companies in the past and we are looking forward
to more high quality work being successfully undertaken during the next three
