Global firm Stantec lays roots in Cleator Moor

15th March 2023

A global, multi-billion-pound design and engineering firm has opened the doors of  a new workspace in Cumbria.


Stantec, a global leader in sustainable engineering and design, has chosen Cleator Moor to be the home for its new Cumbrian office.


Stantec employs more than 27,000 people, with over 3,000 based in the UK. The firm plans, designs and delivers iconic projects around the world which help communities develop and grow sustainably.


The move into its new office on Earl Street is a culmination of Stantec’s longstanding commitment to the Cumbrian region and the people who live and work there. 


In the past, Stantec has supported improving connections and investment in the region’s infrastructure. The company has also worked closely with Sellafield, helping this important Cumbrian site maximise the value of its portfolio.


Stantec will have a new home in the same office as React Engineering in Phoenix Court. The two companies will collaborate, supporting each other on local and national business opportunities. 


Stantec’s Neil Crellin, who leads the new Cleator Moor office, commented: “Our new office space in Cleator Moor will allow us to lay down roots and firmly establish our presence in the region while deepening ties with local clients and partners.


“My family has long been a part of Cumbria’s past, it’s good to think that I can be part of its bright future. I’m very much looking forward to building on our commitments to communities in and around Cumbria, but also enjoying the incredible countryside in this beautiful corner of the world.”


Phil Redfern, Managing Director of React Engineering added: “We’ve been collaborating with Stantec for several years and it’s fantastic to see such a prestigious global organisation establish a local presence in the town of Cleator Moor. I’m excited about what the future holds in terms of supporting each other on new business opportunities and I am looking forward to further strengthening our working relationship.”
