Stantec has been recognized with an international award for its work on the Washington State Veterans Home in Retsil, WA, which recently took first place honors in the 2007 Technology Awards competition sponsored by ASHRAE.  

The project is one of only three to receive this top award. The Veterans Home previously earned a Puget Sound Chapter and Northwest Regional Award from ASHRAE. The Veterans Home is a $48 million, long-term care facility overlooking Puget Sound. Stantec provided mechanical engineering and sustainable design services for the 240-bed complex, working with NBBJ Architects. Earlier this year, the building earned a LEED Gold certification from the USGBC. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.
