Our electrical engineering is being handled by Stantec, with the engineering team of Bob Kischko, Allan St. Peter, Meagan Crowley, Sylvia Miller and Jonathan Freed.
Green Buildings, Sustainable Design and LEED® Certified Experience
Stantec first took roots in green ideas back in the early 1990s. They have since invested time and expense nurturing these ideas that have now blossomed into a company-wide philosophy. They think outside of the box to provide innovative and sustainable ideas for building systems and now have one of the largest portfolios of completed green projects in North America. Their designs have won numerous sustainable design awards. With over 6,300 design, technical and support employees throughout North America, they have grown to be a leader in the green design field with a goal to continue to provide clients with fresh ideas in green building design.
Stantec is committed — through all levels of their organization — to sustaining our environment by designing buildings for their clients; buildings that use material, energy, and water resources efficiently, minimize site impacts, and address health issues relating to the indoor environment.
Their experience with real completed projects affirms that sustainable design adds value for clients. They have found that sustainable design provides tangible, measurable improvements in quality of life while reducing life cycle costs and often up front costs as well. Resources include green specifications and materials database, detailed case studies, and a resource database of people and information organized under the five LEED® categories: Sustainable Sites, Energy & Atmosphere, Water Efficiency, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality. Being active in Green Buildings and Sustainable Design, they often act as advocates for Green on projects. The magic in Green Building design is to achieve excellent building goals within the conventional building budget. They provide significant leadership in the implementation of Green design in projects and are members of both the US Green Building Council and the Canada Green Building Council.
