Innovation through technical excellence drives our business and so it is one of our core values. We are committed to finding new and more efficient ways of delivering our work for our clients.

To do this effectively we need to understand our clients’ needs and how changing economic, environmental and technological settings will affect these. Our very experienced senior staff are well placed to drive this strategy forward, together with our junior staff who are excited by the challenges posed.

Our Experience


At ESI, now part of Stantec, we have been involved in a range of interesting and challenging innovation projects, including:

  • Increased efficiency of internal processes through improved tools, templates and procedures
  • Tools and processes that allow us to offer a higher level of service to our clients
  • Tools that become saleable products
  • Tools developed for clients as a paid for project

Much of our innovative work has been shared more widely with the industry via peer reviewed journals. Examples of some of these papers can be found here (178K PDF).
