Stantec Civil Engineering Co-op Student - Buildings (Winter 2023) in EDMONTON, Alberta

Civil Engineering Co-op Student - Buildings (Winter 2023) - ( 2200039P )


The buildings that make up the landscape of our daily lives seem like permanent fixtures, fastened to a time and place. But what if that did not have to be true? What if our built environment — where we live, learn, play, and conduct business — carried us forward instead?

We put the engine in buildings engineering. Intelligent design. Innovative execution. These are the elements of buildings engineering that rev us up. With decades of experience under our belts, we are achieving remarkable results with our work in building technologies, energy, and environmental performance.

Our Buildings practice keeps people at its heart, recognizing that our shared journey forward is shaped by the meaningful and responsive places we design. From iconic designs to monumental groundbreakings, join us to bring transformational building solutions to life. Every day we apply our expertise, creativity, and passion to propel communities into the future.
