[expand title=”Click here to read more…”] What differentiates you from your competition? Our exceptional team of designers, engineers, scientists, and problem solvers regularly collaborate on the most vexing challenges. We look at every assignment as an opportunity to bring communities together and make lasting connections with the people and places we serve. When we take on a project, we see more than a building, a road, or a source of energy. We see the communities impacted by these projects, and look at every design challenge through this lens. What are you doing differently this year to market your services to your clients? We continue to execute our successful business model, one that leverages the strength of our local position to bring our world-class expertise to the communities in which we live and work and drives a client-focused culture through cross-selling efforts, account management strategies, and strong local relationships. We also continue to evolve our full suite of social and traditional communications tools, providing timely and meaningful content for all of our stakeholders. What new trends in the industry do you anticipate affecting your business in the near future? Our capabilities in disaster response and recovery, resilience assessment, mitigation, and design unite infrastructure, environmental, and quality of life improvements and will affect our clients and industries now and within the years to come. We are well-suited to address the growing demand for resiliency in our infrastructure, buildings and environment. Stantec’s holistic approach to resiliency is helping communities endure, adapt, and thrive in the face of stress and shock. How does SMPS impact your business? We’re recognized as an industry leader, in part by our affiliation with hundreds of organizations, and our tradition of giving back to the industries and communities in which we work. Stantec employees participate in many professional and business-related organizations, including SMPS. We find these connections promote a business culture that encourages best practices, and helps keep our employees current on the latest industry standards, trends, and issues. [/expand]
