first_imgStantec helping Vermont Tech build new fire training facilityNORTH SPRINGFIELD VT (July 22, 2008) TSX:STN; NYSE:SXCLocal engineering firm Stantec is helping Vermont Technical College build new training equipment for its Fire Science degree program.Engineers from the company’s North Springfield and South Burlington offices are designing the site’s new access road, parking, water main and storage tank, and electrical services for the equipment, which will serve as a “live-burn” training center for firefighters in training at Vermont Tech, the Vermont Fire Academy and local community fire departments. Stantec is also managing the site’s permitting, including that related to Act 250 and stormwater management.The work is being funded primarily by a $406,000 federal grant secured earlier this year by Senator Bernie Sanders to purchase equipment; and a $240,000 state grant to erect the facility. Under conditions of the grant, Stantec and the college must complete the project by the end of 2008.”We’re really excited to be helping make such important training available to Vermont’s firefighters,” said Tom Nesbitt, a senior associate at Stantec. “The project’s very tight timeframe is a challenge, but our team is ready and able to put in all the hours we need to complete the work safely, efficiently, and within the deadline.”In 1997, Stantec also provided structural and civil engineering services for a similar facility in Concord, New Hampshire.Started in 2007, Vermont Tech’s Fire Science program prepares students for careers in fire protection, including professional firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and dispatchers. Students take courses in hazardous materials chemistry, fire prevention, and occupational safety and health.Stantec provides professional design and consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, surveying, economics, and project management. We support public and private sector clients in a diverse range of markets in the infrastructure and facilities sector at every stage, from initial concept and financial feasibility to project completion and beyond.
