Stantec puts brand on Executive Place
Stantec Inc. has occupied the top floors of Executive Place for more than a year.
Now the international consulting firm has laid claim to the 4900 50th St. building itself.
The 12-storey structure has been renamed Stantec Executive Place, with new signage installed on Tuesday.
The timing was good, said Stantec vice-president Russ Wlad, because the company’s new brand and logo were unveiled the same day.
“That’s the first time that that’s been seen across North America,” said Wlad.
Originally leasing the top five levels of Executive Place, Stantec has now spread to the seventh floor and plans to occupy a portion of the ground level as well.
Wlad said about 190 staff are located there, and the company is pleased with its premises.
“We’re very proud to have such a presence in Red Deer, right down by City Hall Park and the downtown.”
Discussions about naming rights to Executive Place date back to Stantec’s original lease, said Wlad.
He added that those naming rights coincide with the lease term.
In addition to a new logo, the Stantec brand now emphasizes the company’s responsibilities to the communities it serves.
Stantec offices around the world celebrated the new brand on Tuesday by holding a “Stantec in the Community Day.”
This involved community service, with the Red Deer office conducting a barbecue in support of the Red Deer and District Food Bank.
Wlad said staff chose the food bank as the focus of the community day in Red Deer.
