Stantec to acquire Dunlop Architects

Stantec has reached an agreement in principle to acquire one of Toronto’s top architecture firms, Dunlop Architects, which also has an office in Hamilton. The addition of Dunlop’s approximately 100 employees will add to Stantec’s architectural and interior design group already one of the largest in the country and enhance the company’s presence in the Greater Toronto Area. Stantec provides professional design and consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, surveying, and project management. They support public and private sector clients in a diverse range of markets, at every stage, from initial concept and financial feasibility to project completion and beyond. Their services are offered through more than 4,000 employees operating out of over 50 locations in North America and the Caribbean. Stantec trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol STN. Dunlop Architects, a full-service architecture firm established in 1953, is recognized as a leader in the design of facilities in the acute and long-term health care, laboratory, justice, civic and institutional, post-secondary educational, entertainment, and high-tech communication markets. The firm provides a wide spectrum of architectural consulting services including architectural design, project management, specifications, contract administration, site review, and facilities programming. The transaction is expected to be complete by mid-October.
