who we are



Founded in 1936 Barton Willmore, now Stantec is a leading planning, regeneration and design consultancy. From 13 offices nationwide our 300+ planners and designers combine national influence with local knowledge to offer you the very best advice.

We build teams of people who are passionate about creating places that are commercially viable, sustainable, dynamic and progressive. From healthy new communities to town centre regeneration our specialist teams can plan, design and deliver it.

By working alongside each other day-in, day-out, our teams each have a unique ‘big picture’ perspective, which enables us to provide you with informed, yet innovative advice and proposals while also saving you time and money.

As a national Practice, we also use our size to make a difference. By pushing the standards of legislation, stakeholder engagement and sustainability ever higher, we aim to influence methods of practice and projects, for the good of the property industry, local communities and the environment.

Our network of local offices spread throughout England, Scotland and Wales, each have their own ambitions and understanding of what makes their local region tick. This enables us to provide targeted insight to produce great results, no matter what the location of a scheme.

In April 2022 we joined Stantec a community of more than 25,000 employees working in more than 400 locations across six continents. Together, we share a commitment to advance the quality of life in our communities around the world.
