Trico Engineering Joins North American Design Firm Stantec

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2007) - Stantec (TSX:STN) (NYSE:SXC) announced today that South Carolina consulting firm Trico Engineering Consultants, Inc. has joined the Company. Based in North Charleston, Trico adds approximately 130 employees specializing in civil engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, and planning.

"With Trico, we significantly enhance our presence, depth and experience in the Charleston area," says Stantec President and CEO Tony Franceschini. "Their services complement much of what we're already doing in the Southeast, and we look forward to expanding those services further into the coastal areas of the Carolinas."

For over 25 years, Trico has worked on a broad range of residential and commercial development projects in the greater Charleston area, including the 300-acre Centre Point development in North Charleston. Centre Point now houses the area's first retail outlet center and has become a centerpiece of the city's redevelopment efforts.

"Joining Stantec really opens up opportunities for our employees and our clients," says Cleve Gillette, Trico President and General Manager. "Stantec's wide network of staff and resources allows us to offer even more services to our clients, while we continue to do the same quality work right here from our local office."

Trico has offices in North Charleston and Georgetown, South Carolina. Stantec's existing office in Charleston will merge with Trico's North Charleston office later this month. With Trico, Stantec now has 10 offices with over 400 employees in the Carolinas and the Southeast.
