National design firm Stantec has acquired Salt Lake City-based JBR Environmental Consultants.

The acquisition allows Stantec, which has 12 western U.S. locations, to bolster its growing environmental service presence capabilities across the West.

"JBR shares our client-focused, relationship-driven culture and has considerable large-scale project experience," says Bob Gomes, Stantec president and chief executive officer. "Their talented team members will help us continue to grow our environmental service capabilities across the western United States."

The company provides several services: baseline environmental studies, air monitoring and testing, permitting and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) assistance, site investigation and remediation services, and environmental compliance assistance. It services several business sectors, including manufacturing, oil and gas, mining, and power generation and transmission.

"We have a tremendous opportunity to build on Stantec's presence in the western United States while further developing our staff and experience within the firm's expansive network," says Brian Buck, JBR president.

Stantec has more than 5,000 employees working across 125 offices in the United States.
