Stantec announced that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Rocklin-based ECO:LOGIC Engineering, a leader in providing services to the water resources market with six offices and approximately 100 employees. The firm specializes in the planning, permitting, design, construction management, and operations of water and wastewater facilities in northern California and Nevada. “The demand for clean and safe water continues to grow in North America, and the ECO:LOGIC team is on the forefront of the planning, design, and management of water and wastewater facilities,” said Bob Gomes, Stantec president and CEO. “The acquisition of ECO:LOGIC will add a lot more depth to our environmental infrastructure capabilities in the western United States.” Some of ECO:LOGIC’s projects include the multiple award-winning Lincoln Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Facility in northern California; the North Valley’s Water Importation Project near Reno; and the city of Merced Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion. The company’s leading-edge reputation is well deserved as demonstrated by its smooth integration of project financing, regulatory compliance, process optimization, automation, energy efficiency, and operations. The company recently developed an interactive operations manual for the iPad mobile digital device, which helps agencies permanently retain operations knowledge and keep treatment plants online and operating efficiently.
