EDMONTON—Stantec Inc. is buying a 134-person U.S. design firm that focuses on civic, transit and commercial projects.
The Canadian engineering and construction company said June 22 it will acquire Denver’s RNL Design, which had four offices in the U.S. as well as one in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
It did not disclose the purchase price.
The Denver-based company has worked on a number of large projects across the U.S. and provided master planning services for Dubai’s Burj Khalifa development.
“RNL provides us with a critical geographic buildings design hub between our coasts with incredible service synergies to civic, transit, and commercial clients throughout the United States and Middle East,” Bob Gomes, the company’s president and CEO, said in a statement.
Stantec said the acquisition is part of a wider strategy to improve its reach in the U.S. and around the world.
The company expects the deal to close next month.
