“We are truly excited to be joining Stantec. It is a move that will expand our reach and provide greater opportunities for our clients and employees alike,” says José Granado, Managing Director of Wood & Grieve Engineers.
Following the successful completion of due diligence, award-winning firm Wood & Grieve Engineers (WGE) has now begun the job of integrating its business into global consulting firm Stantec.
“Stantec’s local operations complements ours, giving us enhanced capability rather than simply a duplication of expertise,” Granado said.
“This was important to us – we wanted a partner with a similar culture and reputation in the market to our own, but a partner that also valued what WGE brings to the table. We’re thrilled to have found that in Stantec.
“It’s exciting for us to be able to offer our clients access to knowledge in new areas like water, transport, environmental and mining, and be able to support them on projects in other markets.
“Meanwhile, our people will benefit from greater opportunities across the entire Stantec network.”
WGE officially joined Stantec on Friday 1st March , but the process will be a gradual one with the firm retaining its name alongside Stantec throughout the transition.
“The integration process is important to our shared future success and we want to do it right,” Granado said.
“Clients will continue to see the same faces. Our teams will have the same autonomy, and we remain committed to delivering outstanding outcomes and exceptional service. But from this point we are now part of Stantec.”
Stantec president and CEO Gord Johnston said WGE’s track record of delivering iconic projects, with a clear client-centric approach, made them the ideal partner.
“WGE brings recognised expertise and the regional presence to help us to serve communities throughout Australia with an enhanced range of services,” Johnston said.
“This union wasn’t simply about boosting our global engineering capability, but our mutually thoughtful approach to work and excellence in project delivery. Combined, we can use that approach to support a wider range of interesting and innovative projects in the region.”
Stantec is a multi-disciplinary, publicly-traded company that unites approximately 22,000 employees working in over 400 locations across six continents.
