Stantec, based in Edmonton, has acquired environmental management firm TetrES Consultants of Winnipeg. TetrES has a 20 year history in Manitoba and across western Canada. It has 25 employees in Winnipeg and specializes in multidisciplinary assignments involving infrastructure/master planning, environmental assessments, regulatory issues, and expert testimony.
George Rempel, TetrES President, said: “We have built an enviable local presence and have been able to dominate in a number of market niches but our local success has not transferred into many opportunities outside of Manitoba. By joining Stantec we are gaining access to the resources we need to successfully compete with the national and multinational firms that serve our clients outside of our local market. In addition, we are giving our staff the opportunity to grow their careers by working with their new Stantec colleagues on projects throughout North America.”
Combined with TetrES, Stantec now has approximately 200 employees in Winnipeg as part of 3,400 staff throughout Canada and the United States.
GENIVAR, with its headquarters in Montreal, has acquired two firms: Beaubien Glover Maskell Engineering North Inc. of Edmonton, and Bearden Engineering Consultants Ltd. of Red Deer.
