Stantec has signed a deal to acquire Minnesota-based Bonestroo, Inc., which is an engineering, planning, and environmental science firm with about 275 employees in eleven offices located in the Midwest United States.

“With Bonestroo’s expertise and reputation for technical excellence and responsive service, we’ll be better equipped to offer municipal and environmental services in regions of the United States where, to date, we’ve had very limited or no presence,” said Bob Gomes, Stantec president and chief executive officer.

The acquisition will allow Stantec to enter new markets in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and North Dakota.
