Design Firm Stantec is Growing Their Transportation Group in Downtown Atlanta
ATLANTA, GA, NYSE, TSX:STN: Stantec’s Atlanta office made an addition to their growing transportation team with the hire of Joel Mann, AICP as a principal in Stantec’s Urban Places Group. Mann will provide the greater Atlanta community with inventive and safe plans for transportation transit and multi-modal projects.
Mann helps cities and the private sector navigate the shift from simply moving cars to balanced systems that keep everyone moving. Skillfully applying national best practices to urban conditions helps him deliver transportation plans that dramatically improve the public realm, reduce traffic generated by new development, shrink parking demand, and deliver forward-looking zoning and land-use regulations. Having developed plans for cities across the Southeastern US, he’s currently working on the new walkable downtown district, Water Street Tampa.
Stantec’s Urban Places team leads transformative urban development in North America. We give our clients the benefits of a progressive boutique practice and the technical reach of a top-ten global design firm. We anchor a network of experts in mobility, planning and urban design, mixed-use architecture, resilience, real estate feasibility, smart cities, and brownfield redevelopment. Together we help cities and suburbs harness the rising demand for urban living to become more livable, equitable, and sustainable.
Stantec also added Adam D. Smith, PE as senior roadway engineer. Smith will work with the Atlanta and Macon groups to continue providing the greater Atlanta community with inventive and safe roadway designs.
Smith brings more than two decades of experience in civil engineering, with a strong emphasis in transportation. He is skilled in the implementation of AASHTO and roadway design standards, and has worked on state Department of Transportation and local municipality projects, ranging from simple to complex. Mr. Smith also has experience designing sewer force mains, gravity sewers, and traffic analysis.
Mitchell Greenway, Stantec transportation lead in Georgia, said of the new hire, “We’re excited to continue growing our transportation team with the addition of Adam. He brings both rural and urban design experience that will be essential to helping us continue to provide clients with a high level of service.”
