Stantec receives 2022 SAME Large Business Award

This award reflects the firm’s commitment to partnering with small businesses.


The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) has awarded leading global design firm Stantec the SAME Large Business Award at the Federal Small Business Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on November 4, 2022.

The award recognizes a firm for prioritizing subcontracts with qualified small businesses supporting U.S. Department of Defense programs. It also highlights participation in small business initiatives, conferences, and the U.S. Small Business Administration Mentor Protégé Program. With more than 700 active partnerships with small and disadvantaged businesses, Stantec has kept this effort front of mind.

“We recognize the drive, energy and specialized expertise small businesses can bring and together we can build and sustain dynamic long-term client relationships,” Chris Williams, senior vice president for Stantec’s U.S. Federal Program. “Our small business partners speak to the meaningful and multifaceted work we provide and how it lets both parties excel. We are honored and humbled to receive this award from SAME.”

The firm selected for the SAME Large Business Award is required to meet a list of criteria, including:

  • Small business subcontracting performance
  • Letters of recognition or awards for outstanding small business utilization
  • Description of efforts to support small businesses and results
  • Internal training of small business support initiatives
  • Participation in small business conferences

Last year, the firm launched a Mentor-Protégé Joint-Venture partnership with Baird, a trusted expert in river, marine, and coastal engineering and science worldwide.

With more than 26,000 employees working in over 400 locations worldwide, Stantec is a trusted source for highly technical design solutions.
