McIntosh joins Stantec

McIntosh Engineering has signed a letter of intent to join Stantec, a professional engineering and design services firm with approximately 9,000 employees, operating out of more than 125 locations across North America. Operating as a newly formed Mining practice area within Stantec, McIntosh will maintain its focus on customer service in the realm of underground mining engineering, design, procurement, and construction management services. This agreement pairs McIntosh Engineering's reputation as a world leader in underground mining services with Stantec's five decades of award-winning experience in infrastructure projects and other complementary services.

Two critical issues in mining today are recruiting and retaining qualified people to meet expanding global project requirements. Recognising these critical needs, McIntosh believes joining with Stantec is in the best long-term interest. Potential advantages include:

  • Providing clients access to expanded resources to meet project requirements
  • Ability to serve mining clients from additional geographic locations and with access to heavy infrastructure, environmental, and expanded program/project management and project controls services not currently available through McIntosh
  • Providing employees with increased personal development opportunities, enhancing the company's ability to recruit and retain qualified people.
