ESD is proud to announce we are now Stantec! This exciting development provides greater value for you, creates growth opportunities for our employees, and increases our positive impact in the community.
We are excited that our Willis Tower office in Chicago will serve as the U.S. National Center for Building Engineering, a group now comprised of nearly 800 people. Furthermore, the depth and breadth of our services expands as we integrate into Stantec’s global footprint and complementary offerings – environmental, infrastructure, community development, etc.
We hold dear our relationships and look forward to strengthening our ties as part of Stantec.
Your real estate investments directly impact your success. You deserve a consulting and engineering partner with the experience to help you understand tomorrow’s needs, collaborate on practical solutions, and simplify your decisions.
We help developers differentiate their buildings through our integrated/optimized solutions including health and wellness, sustainability, efficient MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing), and intelligent building design.
By identifying and implementing key features and systems to tall urban structures, we make it easier to attract anchor tenants.
Repositioning existing facilities can often lead to big dividends for building owners and operators. We know how to maximize building systems and layouts to help add value, attract and retain premier tenants, and improve overall functionality by enhancing operations and maintenance procedures that can lead to lower costs.
Our vision can take your property to a whole new level.
Leveraging biosafety level (BSL) experience to design appropriate safeguards and functionality is paramount in all our healthcare and life sciences projects. We also have the skill and vision to reimagine and reconfigure existing spaces for speed-to-market repurposing.
As the business model for large health systems continues to evolve, we are ready to find new healthcare uses and opportunities for existing buildings.
The heart of any thriving tourism industry is a strong hospitality and convention center infrastructure. ESD helps facility owners drive economic development by expanding and refreshing convention centers and hotels to help them remain competitive in attracting major events.
We also provide solutions to enable the quick transformation (logistics) of convention space for different uses and requirements.
Our Mission is to Improve Society Through the Built Environment.
Services: No Silos, No Barriers, No Limits
Today’s buildings are vastly complex. That means all teams have to work as one. That’s what ESD does: unify our processes to give you the widest range of expertise and possibilities. Whether you are looking for intelligent buildings, have health and wellness concerns, and/or need to achieve sustainability goals.
How Do Today’s Real Estate Visionaries Imagine Tomorrow?
Buildings need to provide for altered expectations in a changing world. They have to work for their tenants, for the community, and for the environment. When you are dreaming of tomorrow’s projects, you want to plan for three things.
Tenants rely on builders, operators, and owners to protect their interests and boost their productivity, satisfaction, and even health. Our experts help make that possible.
Make buildings matter. Make buildings last. Make the built environment make a difference.

Creativity, insight, partnership. Better spaces to work, to live, and to plan for the future
At ESD, we believe that improving the built environment is how we improve the lives of people. We look around the corner so that we can build for sustainability. We design so that people work healthier, live fuller, and interact more.
Respect everyone. Work hard. Play to win. Those are the words we live by every day. It’s how we answer tomorrow’s most important questions.
