Today’s emerging wellness model considers health across a wide continuum of care. This model is designed to influence healthy behavior and lifestyle, to prevent disease and ultimately keep members of the community from requiring acute care. But what will the spaces look like where it will take place? Our wellness design expert Brenda Bush-Moline takes a look. http://www.stantec.com/blog/2017/designing-healthy-spaces.html#.WMrRqG8rKM8

We don’t often name construction methods for what they don’t accomplish. But, when it comes to Trenchless Technology, not having to dig a trench is the whole point.

Can a single piece of art inspire the design of an entire space? Susan LeFleur thinks so, and she's proven it.

We used to think about airports merely as semi-industrial buildings that people fly to and from. Today, this view of airports and the role they play is changing. Airports are now public places connected to the city they serve. Art is a way for the city to connect with travelers by blending beauty, usefulness, and civic identity to leave a lasting impression. Airport design expert Gelare Danaie explains how this concept was successfully designed into Toronto's Pearson International Airport. http://www.stantec.com/blog/2017/designing-airport-art.html#.WMG4a28rKM8

It’s the fastest sport on skate--Red Bull Crashed Ice--and it’s crashing into Ottawa today as part of the Ottawa 2017 celebrations. As the crowd of about 100,000 people watches some of the world’s best and toughest skaters shoot down a massive ice track at speeds of up to 80 km/h, jostling for first place, taking hairpin turns, and leaping over drops, they may not think about what’s happening under those skates—and their own feet—to make an extreme event like this possible. Learn more about the creative engineering that went into making it happen http://www.stantec.com/blog/2017/extreme-sports-facility-engineering.html#.WLmgam8rKM8
