Hand Pick Your Dream Team

October 12, 2018 Aaditya Raman

Wouldn't it be reassuring if you could handpick your dream team for a project? Having the very best project management in place is essential to any successful project. At Stantec, we take pride in tailoring our project teams to the specific project requirements, size, and complexity. Our experience enables us to anticipate possible problem areas and dedicate necessary resources where needed. 



Our project managers are highly experienced in stakeholder coordination, contract administration, task staffing and scheduling, budget management, quality control/assurance including peer reviews, decision-making coordination, and timely status reporting and programmatic adjustments. 

We work with the City of Winnipeg to develop effective working relationships, to understand and articulate expectations, to provide adequate contingencies in both project budgets and scheduling, and to establish critical milestones and decision-making strategies. We will work as an integrated team to ensure that your project runs smoothly—on time and on budget.
