Aercoustics engineering of Toronto is the first company in Canada to receive ISO accreditation for testing noise emissions of wind turbines. The Standards Council of Canada granted ISO 17025:2005 to Aercoustics to conduct IEC 61400-11 measurements. Aercoustics joins just a handful of organizations worldwide — most of them in Europe — that have the accreditation in this area.
Stantec has moved 120 staff to a new office in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The new 30,000-sq.ft. office officially opened its doors on Monday, January 13 at 141 Kelsey Drive. Stantec first came to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2009 when the company acquired Jacques Whitford Limited.
Robert MacLeod, office leader for the new location, said “We’re excited to have the majority of our St. John’s team members under one roof. Although the architectural group will continue to operate from our Airport Road location, this consolidation on Kelsey Drive will provide an opportunity for greater collaboration amongst staff from Stantec’s various disciplines.” Stantec is currently involved in several major projects in the province, including the Muskrat Falls Lower Churchill Project, Long Harbour Project, Hebron Project and the St. John’s Convention Centre Expansion.
In Barrie, Ontario, Steve Donald has joined Stantec as railway operations planning and modeling lead. He specializes in capacity analyses using Berkeley Simulation’s RTC modeling platform and will be specializing in growing the company’s transit/rail sector in Canada and internationally.
Martin Clouthier, B.Eng. has joined Fauske & Associates (FAI), as its Canadian fire explosion expert specializing in nuclear facilities and explosion risk assessments for industrial processes. Clouthier has 20 years of experience in this area and has been an active member of the NFPA committee for explosion protection systems since 2005. FAI is based in Illinois, but Clouthier will provide service in Canada.
