Portland engineering firm Industry and Energy Associates LLC has been acquired by Edmonton, Alberta-based Stantec.
The acquisition, Stantec's fourth in Maine, adds IEA's 60 employees to Stantec's 200-person work force in Maine at offices in Portland, Scarborough, Topsham and Limestone, according to a press release from the company. Bob Gomes, president and CEO of Stantec, says IEA's focus on traditional and renewable energy complements Stantec's work in design and environmental management. IEA has worked on co-generation, coal and electrical transmission projects, as well as wind and biomass systems, and recently worked on a renewable power project on the Galapagos Islands. The company also has a regional office in South Carolina.
Stantec provides consulting services to a range of engineering, architecture and infrastructure projects, and has 9,300 employees and 150 locations in North America. The company has expanded its reach into renewable work and has led the site design and environmental permitting process for wind farms in North America, according to the release.
