Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering services, unites more than 26,000 employees working in more than 400 locations across 6 continents. Stantec combines engineering, planning, and technical services to deliver sustainable development and infrastructure projects from pre-planning to completion, shaping strategies and completing projects.
Stantec’s high-quality designs respond to the specific townscape, cultural, and social contexts of each project with community in mind. The company offers its engineers, designers, project managers, and other professionals the opportunity to contribute to the development of healthier hospitals, smarter schools, safer roadways, and more resilient waterways.
With steep competition for top talent, Stantec knows that its work environment must be one in which its employees have the support they need to advance the quality of life in communities across the globe. One way Stantec delivers that support is by using Ideate Software tools.
“I have been a fan of Ideate Software tools since I first used them in 2015,” said Ben Holmes, Senior Technician, Stantec. “They help our team spend more time offering unique insight to every project by reducing the time needed to perform repetitive tasks, search for and update model elements, and ensure all deliverables meet our high standards.”
Here are a few examples of how Stantec benefits from Ideate Software tools:
On the East Riverside project, Stantec used Ideate Software tools for auditing the models and for mentoring on best practices when errors in elements were found. “This mentoring helps reduce recurring errors and allows people to work more productive without the worry,” said Ben.
On this project, Stantec also used Ideate BIMLink daily to assist with data population as well as creating new families, views, and exporting quantities, and they used Ideate Explorer to find specific beams or columns with certain parameters, allowing quick isolation so they can be interrogated easily by the design team.
